On Tuesday, legendary singer/songwriter Andy Kim paid a visit to the Music Canada courtyard to perform an acoustic set for staff and Liberty Village businesses and residents. Kim performed his iconic hits “How’d We Ever Get This Way,” “Sugar, Sugar,” and “Rock Me Gently,” and provided personal anecdotes from his extensive career.
Canadian nuevo flamenco guitarist Jesse Cook performed a rare unplugged set during a visit to the Music Canada office Tuesday. Cook’s new album One Worlddisplays the JUNO-award winning and Platinum-certified artist further connecting styles and themes of music from across the globe centered around his unique style of guitar playing. One World also finds Cook experimenting with new electronic and metallic sounds, which he credits his two young children as influences for the new direction. Fans of all ages and genres should catch Cook’s brilliant guitar playing when he tours across Canada this fall!
Following a full-band performance on Breakfast Television Monday, MapleMusic recording artist Peter Katz stopped by the Music Canada courtyard for an acoustic performance of songs off his new album We Are The Reckoning. The Toronto singer/songwriter (originally from Montreal) is gearing up for an international tour in support of the new album before returning to Canada in May for a cross-country stint. Music Canada was pleased to host invitees from surrounding Liberty Village businesses for the performance.
