with the Steve Strongman Band



In 1968 Harrison Kennedy joined the Detroit pop group “The Chairmen of the Board” and played top venues (including Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show, Soul Train, American Bandstand, and England’s Top of the Pops) doing their hit, “Gimme Me Just A Little More Time.” C.O.T.B. had performances with B.B. King, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Funkadelics, and more. C.O.T.B. also performed many times at New York's famous Harlem’s Apollo Theatre. Since these golden days, Harrison has embarked on a massively successful solo career.

The 2016 JUNO Award winner, Harrison is firmly established as one of the 21st Century’s foremost Blues singer/songwriters. Harrison’s dynamic vocal gifts have won him worldwide acclaim going all the way back to his 1970’s days as a founding member of the million selling Detroit Soul Super Group the Chairmen of the Board, and are aptly showcased here on our Ancaster stage. LIVING BLUES magazine says it best “Harrison Kennedy is a modern Blues Master of True Substance”.


7PM Caroline Wiles

8PM Jacob Moon

9PM Harrison Kennedy with the Steve Strongman Band



Local Hamilton artist, Jacob Moon is known for his giftedness as a singer, songwriter of award-winning pop and folk songs. He is also a master of the art of ‘live looping’, a performance style where he records what he’s playing in real time and layers sound on sound to make one guitar sound like an orchestra.

Artists like Rush, Marillion and Gordon Lightfoot have taken a shine to Moon’s renditions of their songs and have lavished him praise and a spotlight that has gained him international attention. It is these inventive covers that draws the fans in, but it’s Moon’s original material (12 albums) and his compelling live show that make them pull up a chair.



Another local Hamilton artist, Caroline is one of Canada's best-kept musical secrets at the height of her powers. She creates a unique blend of thoughtfully moving lyrics, intimately and endearingly warm vocals, and timeless folk rock songcraft. Her live performances are inviting and captivating.
