Great Lake Swimmers is a Canadian band built around the melodic folk rock songs of singer-songwriter Tony Dekker.  With flourishing banjo and guitars, Dekker and band mates push their sound with each new album by creating new dynamic songs and sounds.  Their main instrument is the singular voice of Tony Dekker, a voice that summons ghosts from times past. It’s a voice that is capable of
conveying heartache and comfort all in the space of a single phrase.

This concert is an intimate incarnation of the band as a trio, revisiting the songs spanning the past thirteen years and the seven album catalogue.  Requests taken at: facebook.com/greatlakeswimmers

Opening Act: Megan BonnellMegan Bonnell

In dreams, the real and the surreal interweave in a dizzying dance; elements of one exist within the context of the other.  Ontario’s Megan Bonnell captures the dance in her music.

She  showcases sonic textures and lyrical themes that greatly belie her young age.  Her music is rooted in the real and organic – a very transparent take on subtly strummed guitar chords accompanied by a smoky, sophisticated voice; however, that core is often enveloped in a surreal, dream-like space that boldly and beautifully blurs the lines between asleep and awake – sometimes from song to song and  ometimes within the same one.
