Pharis and Jason Romero
Friday, January 22, 8:00 pm
Singing vibrant duets, writing deadly songs, playing their handmade banjos, and loving old acoustic guitars, Pharis and Jason Romero have a classic story. Some scratchy old records and a custom banjo led to their meeting in 2007, and they quickly knew they were in for the long haul. They’ve since released six records, toured all over, and enjoyed two Juno awards, multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards, and performances on A Prairie Home Companion and CBC’s The Vinyl Cafe.

Alex comes out of the Cuban nueva cancion tradition of songwriting – but is known for his vast musical vision. His sweet melodies, pop-soul hooks and powerful guitar riffs depart from the conventional stereotype that exemplifies much of the Latin music landscape today. His is music fully rooted in Latin America generally and Cuba specifically, but beautifully bridges cultures and influences in a way that not only entrances audiences but has drawn the attention of other artists and musical collaborators, critics and award-givers.
Kym Gouchie Trio
Friday, March 5, 8:00 pm
Kym’s traditional hand drum, clean, crisp acoustic guitar, and full-bodied voice make her a powerful artist. Traditional First Nations, folk, and country tones alongside poignant and inspirational lyrics capture the hearts of young and old — her genuine and heartfelt performances have a profound and often emotional impact on her audience.
HAKO by Ouro Collective
Friday, March 26, 8:00 pm

Using inventive interactive installations, striking visual effects and exhilarating movement for an ensemble of five virtuosic dancers, the work reframes our relationship to technology, and joyfully re-ignites our capacity for curiosity and play.

Locarno is the Latin project of JUNO Award-winning musician, Tom Landa, like him, the music is equal parts Mexican and Canadian. Tom was born and raised in Mexico City and moved to Canada in his teens. In the mid-nineties, he formed the Folk Roots band, The Paperboys, who have been touring world-wide for over 20 years. Tom has always dabbled in Latin music, and in 2005 decided to immerse himself more into genre, and studied traditional Mexican Music in Veracruz, Mexico.
