The time has come to have our last Home Routes concert of the season.
The Honey Dew Drops will be performing on their Manitoba tour on April 9th, 2013.
Hailing from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Charlottesville, VA, the Honey Dewdrops are Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish.
Together, they write songs, sing harmonies; play guitar, mandolin, and banjo; have toured the country for the past 4 years and appeared
on A Prairie Home Companion; gained Folk Radio notoriety with a #1 album and have shared the stage with musical greats such as Carolina Chocolate Drops, Mary Gauthier, and Matt Flinner Trio. The Honey Dewdrops have been making music together since they met in 2003. With two guitars and a shared love of the Beatles, Bill Monroe, Neil Young and Mike Seeger, they began singing their favorite songs together in college with the most pared-down sound. Almost 9 years later, that sound and the songwriting of the Honey Dewdrops has evolved and begun to dig deeper, with new instrumentation and taking influence from American traditional music as well as modern songwriters like Darrell Scott, Iris Dement, Mary Gauthier and David Francey. “We’re inspired by songs that are rooted in the experience and lives of people and songs we can all see ourselves in. We try to write and perform in that spirit,” says Laura. During their 4 years of touring and traveling and playing for audiences across the country, Laura and Kagey have drawn inspiration from the people they meet and places they stay. “Traveling has taken us to communities all over and we meet people at the shows, in restaurants, standing in line at the post office or drug store. Everyone we meet has a story they share and that is inspiring to us,” says Kagey.

Our Home Routes concert series is coming close to the end. Two concerts left in our winter season.
Nathan Rogers has one foot firmly planted in the past and the other stepping into a bright future, Rogers has the skills to become a major force in the world of folk music. Aside from his notable pedigree (think father, Stan and uncle, Garnet), Nathan has already garnered a wide critical acclaim from audiences at home in Canada and internationally from countries as far afield as Germany, Denmark, the UK, Israel and the USA. With two albums and various international tours completed in the past six years, the 33-year-old is taking his place as a major force in folk music. He plays six-string and twelve-string guitars, plays a stomp box for rhythm and sings with a deep, resonant baritone that has an eerie similarity to his deceased father. He tells deeply cinematic and descriptive stories through song and his lyrics reflect a profound sense of respect for everyday people and unsung heroes. Nathan has recently become an adept throat singer in the Tuvan style, a form of singing that produces two or more notes simultaneously. It is a small part of a performance that has been described as “intelligent and witty” and “capable of turning the folk world on its ears”.

Can you believe it? We are into our 5th season hosting concerts in conjunction with Home Routes. We have seen some amazing artists perform in our living room from Catherine MacLellan to Suzie Vinnick just to name a few.
Our next upcoming concert artist is Sierra Noble, yes you heard me Sierra Noble is coming to the Calder House. Well we knew going into this one that tickets would sell really fast. However, we were not expecting to sell 60 tickets. That's an amazing number considering we can only sit 30. So thankfully we have wonderful neighbors who have graciously lent us their bigger living space and we'll be able to host in the comforts of their home. Thank you Andy and Paula!
This concert is SOLD OUT! Sorry for all those that didn't reserve first. Here some info about Sierra, you might want to catch her the next time she is in town.
Sierra Noble has been one of Winnipeg, Manitoba’s most promising young talents since releasing her first instrumental album at age 14. Well known for most of her life as a fiddle virtuoso who breezes through numerous styles of music with stunning ease, Sierra’s breadth of experience in music and in life at 22 is impressive. But, she has never been one to rest on her laurels. Encouraged by fellow musicians to sing, at age 17 Sierra decided to try her hand at writing songs. Her journey as a singer-songwriter has proven to be off to a promising start. Although relatively new to the American public, Sierra’s music has taken her around the world, touring in Asia, Europe, North and South America. Sierra’s shows captivate audiences with compelling mood setting performances creating an atmosphere where stunning instrumentals and hook laden pop songs exist in perfect harmony. Those same performances have brought opportunities such as opening for Paul McCartney, Kid Rock, Bon Jovi, as well as performing in the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and for the Queen of England. Her songs speak of universal themes of love, longing, and discovery wrapped in infectious melodies and delivered with sincerity and conviction. Her voice,
a study in gorgeous contradictions – wonderfully pure yet layered with subtle, smoky tones.
Sierra’s music grabbed the attention of the Television industry with placements in hit TV shows such as; One Tree Hill, (Possibility and I Can See), Life Unexpected, (Possibility), Switched at Birth (Human After All and I Can See), and most recently, Parenthood, (Human After All). Sierra is now spending most of her time in New York City where a fateful chance meeting with legendary Grammy Award winning producer, Russ Titelman (Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Steve Winwood, Randy Newman, Rickie Lee Jones) fueled an immediate creative chemistry.
