Performance Notes

× This promises to be an spectacular evening of music. The concert is named after the artist’s much loved song, 'The Innkeeper'’. The song is a redemption story told from the point of view of that rather unsavoury character who turns the anointed couple away in their hour of need in the original nativity tale. The concert will feature original Christmas songs penned by the prolific artist for a new project, including his song "Christmas Day on Planet Earth", that he wrote to perform with the fabulous world music band from Zimbabwe, Black Umfolosi, as well as some songs from his latest album, "Time Travel", and his brand new Francophone project with Patricia Richard, "Sirène et Matelot". Recognized as one of Canada’s finest performing songwriters, Lennie Gallant has released thirteen albums (10 in English and 3 in French) which have won him a host of awards and nominations from the JUNOs, Les Prix Eloizes, and The East Coast Music Awards, including 2017 ECMA Entertainer of the Year. His double CD from his multimedia hit production, Searching For Abegweit, which ran for 175 shows, also won him an ECMA. He was named Canadian Folk Artist of The Year for 2016 and his song Peter’s Dream was voted one of the Top Ten East Coast Songs of All Time and was recently inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. Be sure to check out Lennie's timely and moving Christmas video " Christmas Day on Planet Earth" performed with Black Umfolosi.
