Tickets now on sale for Soldiers of Song - A tribute to the Dumbells - Coming to the Astor on November 3.
Sponsored by the APA, RADARTS and Heritage Canada.

Soldiers of Song is a live performance involving theatre, music, and storytelling based on the original works of the Dumbells, a Canadian concert party that entertained the troops on the front line in World War I.

If nationhood was won on the crest of Vimy Ridge, it was the Dumbells who provided the country with its earliest soundtrack. The soldier-entertainers’ journey from Vimy to vaudeville is now celebrated in the musical play Soldiers of Song, written and directed by award-winning author and two-time Juno Award-nominee Jason Wilson. He is assisted by Canadian storyteller Lorne Brown, Toronto stage actors Jim Armstrong and Andrew Knowlton, and Marcus Ali and Patrice Barbanchon from the Jason Wilson Band. The talented cast of musicians and actors bring the old comedy sketches and humorous war songs to life. Throughout the show, storyteller Lorne Brown shares stories about his personal connection to the Dumbells.

This highly entertaining show celebrates the songs and stories of Canada’s famous First World War concert party: The Dumbells. It is also the focus of Wilson’s book Soldiers of Song: The Dumbells and Other Canadian Concert Parties of the First World War (Wilfrid Laurier University Press, 2012). Both book and show enlightens audiences on the story of the Dumbells and reimagines the musical fare of the famous comedy troupe founded on the Western Front.

Measha Brueggergosman "Home for the Holidays"

Tuesday, December 19, 2017
Doors @ 7pm Show @ 7:30pm

Internationally-acclaimed singer, Measha Brueggergosman, brings her "Home For The Holidays" concert tour to the Astor Theatre in Liverpool on Tuesday, Dec. 19 at 7:30pm. Brueggergosman will perform holiday classics from her album, Christmas, and songs from her latest release, Songs of Freedom.

Christmas was produced by Michael Phillip Wojewoda (Barenaked Ladies, Rheostatics) and features a number of holiday favourites, including “Little Drummer Boy,” “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)” and Joni Mitchell’s “River.” Also included are two originals - the Royal Wood collaboration "Let Joy Reign" and "If You Can Dig It" with Sarah Harmer.

Released earlier this year, Songs of Freedom was inspired by Brueggergosman's discovery of her family's deep history in Canada and the United States. Her paternal great-grandparents were John Gosman and his wife Rose, African Americans who each escaped from slavery in New England colonies during the American Revolution by going to British lines. Brueggergosman learned of her roots on "Who Do You Think You Are," a British-based program bought by the CBC. According to Y-DNA genetic testing of her brother, it is likely their direct-line paternal African ancestors came from the Bassa people of Cameroon. She naturally set off to Cameroon to explore their roots and was immediately consumed with the culture; singing with a Cameroonian artist and speaking beautiful French. Spirituals on the Songs of Freedom album include "Swing Low Sweet Chariot," "Amazing Grace," "Go Tell It On The Mountain" and more.

Originally from Fredericton, New Brunswick, the JUNO Award-winning Brueggergosman has toured the world and performed with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic, among others. She has given a Royal Command Performance for Queen Elizabeth II, championed many causes as a good will ambassador and appeared in multiple film and television projects.
