Jim Cuddy delivers an unforgettable night.  Blue Rodeo front man,  Jim Cuddy weaved old favorites and promising new material into his appearance tonight at The Townshend Theatre.  Fans were ecstatic as Cuddy and his bandmates Anne Lindsay (violin, vocals) and Colin Cripps (guitar, vocals) set a musical feast for the evening. Anne Lindsay’s violin swung between soaring orchestral and southern gothic, her bluegrass bursts a perfect pairing to Colin Cripps’ precision on the acoustic guitar.


Sept 13, 2012    

Phil Churchill, along with Geraldine Hollett and Andrew Dale of the St. John’s, Newfoundland-based folk trio, The Once, both delighted and stirred the audience with a blend of original and traditional songs and three-part harmonies at the Townshend Theatre to open the 2012-13 Tour de Fort season.
