Join the Shoeless Thursdays at the Tranzac, different guest band every week.
Come and hear new Shoeless music as we prepare to record our album!
PWYC, late slot on Thursdays in the Front Room (Tiki room on Jan 9)
January 9 with THE BOXCAR BOYS *tiki room* 10pm
The Boxcar Boys deliver a veritable gumbo of wild gypsy, Dixieland jazz, Klezmer, and folk music performed with a good time New Orleans spirit.
January 16 with VENTANAS *front room* 10pm
Ventanas weaves in and out of upbeat Bulgarian dance tunes, Greek, Lebanese, Turkish, Ukrainian and Sephardic love songs and heart-wrenching Flamenco palos, leading captive audiences through windows into other lands and cultures.
January 23 Eh?! (no Shoeless today! 2 sets of Eh)
*front room* 10pm
Eh?! is a fiddle-based trio of Emilyn Stam, James Stephens and Anne Lederman. Solidly rooted in traditional styles, Eh?! is dedicated to bridging the gap between traditional and contemporary Canadian folk music. Think of it as music with deep roots, soaring branches and birds leaving the nest, heading for distant horizons.
January 30 with HALE AND HEARTY and FRIENDS OF MARKOS
Founded in Florida between a tide pool and a motel parking lot and forged into rag tag reality in a garage in Parkdale. Hale and Hearty is the newest musical duo playing everything from ancient folk tunes to newly composed works, from the Appalachian Mountains to the Islands of the Pacific.
Friends of Markos: Conny Nowe, Rachel Melas and friends playing traditional Greek music!
