We’re so pleased to present our final concert of the season; this one is especially sweet.
Our April Show
It’s been a long cold lonely winter. It feels like years since it’s been clear. And it has been a long time since we booked A Leverage for Mountains to play our series. They were originally scheduled for 2020. And we know what happened.
“Pure music, rich in emotion” — TVA
In the intervening time, the lads from Leverage, Nick Loyer, Jay Trépanier and Jay Flynn, have been honing their chops at home in Val Des Monts. Their rich acoustic sound made a splash at Mariposa and Blue Skies, last summer, where they were rapturously received.
A Leverage for Mountains recently released a new EP, Love Out of the Dark, which is hushed and intimate, with six gorgeous original songs that highlight their harmonies. They are stunning singers and powerful lyricists, and we expect their voices to soar here in the Almonte Old Town Hall.
“…a knockout voice…heartfelt songs…” — Lynn Saxberg, Ottawa Citizen
Opening for A Leverage for Mountains will be Mia Kelly, a Gatineau-based singer with strong Lanark County connections. Blessed with a knockout voice, Mia Kelly’s material ranges from sweet folk to blues-inflected pop. She has been racking up honours since we booked her; most recently, she was selected as a 2023 Canadian Representative at “Les jeux de la Francophonie” in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Show & Location Details
Our shows are still held at the Almonte Old Town Hall, third floor, in the Ron Caron Auditorium. There’s an accessible elevator you can reach from the side entrance. Doors open at 7:30, showtime is at 8:00. There will be t-shirts and music at the merch table, and cold beverages and cookies at the bar.
We do have a Square for payment, but cash is never a bad idea.
