We were exploring the idea of North, musically, when we programmed this show. Since then, both performers have travelled elsewhere, but they still offer compelling music and imagery, and we anticipate an exciting evening of music from both Kevin Closs and Flying Hórses.
Sudbury-based singer-songwriter Kevin Closs has followed his musical mentor Ian Tamblyn to Earth’s frigid zones and discovered his muse.

Big, little, giants…we have an unintended theme for this show. Both groups feature soaring sounds — Big Little Lions feature strong vocal harmonies, while Outside I’m A Giant build on fiddle, pedal steel, and a deep baritone voice.

Big Little Lions Family Matinee – 3:00 pm, March 24 at the Almonte Old Town Hall
As a special treat for families, we will be offering a 45-minute, family-friendly afternoon show with Big Little Lions. The music will be much the same, but the beverages will be kid-appropriate, and dancing is definitely encouraged, as are clapping, singing along, and twirling.
