(LEAMINGTON, ON) – Following a sold out first-time joint fundraising effort, Kingsville Folk Music Festival and the Bank Theatre will present the second concert in a series featuring multi-award winners Annie & Rod Capps with Jason Dennie at the beautifully renovated Bank Theatre and Meeting Place, Saturday, May 23.
On a musical journey that began in 1982, Annie and Rod Capps have earned sincere praise for their song writing and musicianship, with two albums topping the Folk-DJ charts, multiple Detroit Music Award nominations, and two-time Kerrville New Folk Finalists.
They’ve been cultivating a symbiotic sound that reflects their deep and intuitive understanding of each other, delivering songs about broken things and poignant little ponderings with a rootsy vibe, a touch of twang, and a soulful groove.
Anne and Rod have recorded an EP and six full length CDs of original music, with a few notable exceptions. Their growing and devoted fan base, who have been awaiting their highly anticipated new CD Searching For Neverland, will have the opportunity to purchase a copy at the concert.
And, as ever, Gamble Rogers Fingerstyle Champion, multi Cammy Award winner, illustrious mandolin, guitarist, and singer Jason Dennie will join Annie and Rod on stage. The Capps and Dennie have thrilled audiences in sold out concerts and return to the area as fan favourites from the inaugural Kingsville Folk Music Festival last August.
The Bank Theatre is located at 10 Erie Street South in Leamington. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the show begins at 7:30. With limited seating, patrons are urged to purchase tickets in advance.
Tickets are just $20 per person and are available at Rebel Cowboy Music at 5 Main Street East in Kingsville, 519-997-7777, Counter Effects located at 2 Iroquois Road in Leamington, 519-326-4014, or Fletcher’s Cleaners at 245 Erie Street South in Leamington.
The concert is a fund raising project of both the non-profit Sun Parlour Folk Music Society and the registered charity Sun Parlour Players Community Theatre. The Sun Parlour Folk Music Society exists to provide diverse high quality folk music through concerts and the annual Kingsville Folk Music Festival.
SPFMS allocates funds to the MAY FUNd (Music and Arts for Youth), which provides financial assistance to regional youth to access the arts.
Sun Parlour Players Community Theatre is a vibrant organization where everyone can experience the performing arts. Sun Parlour Players Community Theatre is committed to bringing to the community a performing arts centre, The Bank Theatre, with the highest quality of planning, design, and functionality, to accommodate all age groups and all appropriate aspects of liberal arts.
