Blue Skies Music Festival

Saturday Aug. 05, 2017 - 3 p.m.
Moondance now has DAY PASSES on sale for the Blue Skies Music Festival on Saturday August 5 and Saturday August 6. For over four decades, magic has happened for one weekend a year on a very special piece of Ontario wilderness near Clarendon, Ontario. Like Brigadoon, Blue Skies Music Festival springs forth on the August long weekend, then just as quickly disappears for another year. Blue Skies is one of a very small number of completely volunteer-run festivals. Every facet of the festival's operation is performed by volunteers. Check out the poster for performers and times in order to plan your day of great music!

Voodoo Glow Skulls

Wednesday Sep. 13, 2017 - 8 p.m.
Moondance now has tickets on sale for Voodoo Glow Skulls at the Market Hall on Wednesday September 13 at 8pm, with guests, The Cheap Suits + K-Man & The 45s.

In their 24 years of existence, the Voodoo Glow Skulls have an impressive list of achievements. Nine albums, one million records sold, appearances in exotic locations like Brazil and Japan as well as the creation of a record store, record label, recording studio and a music venue attests to the remarkable creativity and energy of the band. Formed in 1988, Voodoo Glow Skulls meshed hardcore punk, traditional ska, tough guitar riffs and the Mexican music of their roots to create the prototype for the West Coast ska-core sound. Unflinchingly honest, their songs often used humor to comment on harsh political realities – from racial inequity to unrest overseas. Singing in both Spanish and English, Voodoo Glow Skulls’ bilingual musical tradition has been a hallmark of the band since they began. The core of the band since the beginning has been the three Casillas brothers, Frank, Eddie and Jorge. With a list of accomplishments that might make some bands ready to slow their pace, the band shows no signs of slowing down. Voodoo Glow Skulls dubbed their sound “California street music” – a perfect description of their high octane mix of rock, punk, ska and hardcore.

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings

Saturday Oct. 21, 2017 - 8 p.m.
Moondance now has tickets on sale for Blackie and the Rodeo Kings at the Market Hall on Saturday October 21 at 8pm. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings originally formed in 1996 when Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson came together to record what was suppose to be a one-off tribute album to the great Canadian songwriter Willie P. Bennett. At the time, all three members were deeply committed to burgeoning solo careers that they had no intentions of putting on hold, and had no plans to turn Blackie into an ongoing concern. Now twenty years later, 8 albums , one Juno award and several Juno nominations under their belts, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings have organically evolved into one of the finest roots-oriented bands in North America. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings remains one of Canada’s greatest musical treasures.

Catherine MacLellan

Moondance now has tickets on sale for Catherine MacLellan on Sunday November 12 at the Market Hall at 4pm presented by Folk Under the Clock. Catherine MacLellan brings her new show, If It’s Alright With You-The Life and Music of My Father, Gene MacLellan, to Peterborough after this summer’s theatre run in Charlottetown, P.E.I. The show is a collection of songs and stories and a look at her father who wrote Canadian classics such as Snowbird (Anne Murray) and Put your Hand in The Hand (Ocean). Catherine lives in rural P.E.I. She’s worked at her craft, releasing a series of remarkable, creative albums, culminating in the Juno Award-winning The Raven’s Sun in 2014. She has also won multiple East Coast Music Awards, Canadian Folk Awards and Music P.E.I. Awards. Her new album, If It’s Alright With You : The Songs of Gene MacLellan, contains 13 of her father’s most famous compositions, songs that propelled him to fame nearly 50 years ago. He died in 1995 when Catherine was still in her mid teens. Catherine explains, “Now I want to share my dad’s music and it’s also an opportunity for me to get to know him better. The more I get to know his songs, the closer I feel to him. He would be happy to know his songs continue on, being remembered and given a new spark”. Catherine is accompanied by her band and will use multi-media imagery in the show.
