About this Event

My Father's Son:

My Father’s Son, an indie folk song-writer from Montreal, QC, melds together intricate lyrics with the richness of simplified, acoustic sound. Singer/songwriter Mark Kulmala released his first album, Heart of Wood, in the fall of 2016. The album’s themes of fleeting innocence, love’s lost and found, determination, and the simple beauty of the landscape are sure to resonate with listeners. Having played in varying bands, in a variety of genres, over the years this endeavour sees a paired down amalgamation of lived experiences, both personal and musical, poetically creating emotionally complex but subdued, reflective songs. An air of storytelling colours the music with sentimental and wholly relatable verses that immerse the audience in the beauty of shared experiences.

From festivals, to large halls, to living rooms - My Father's Son has shared the stage with some of Canada's best artists.

Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers, Dylan Menzie, Joey Landreth, Craig Cardiff, NQ Arbuckle, Zachary Lucky, Belle Star, SloCan Ramblers, Carl Dixon (April Wine, The Guess Who), Damhnait Doyle, Skydiggers.

My Father's Son is releasing his sophomore album in June , 2019. The album was recorded with Paul Pfisterer (The Beauties, Laser, RHYE) at Freckle's Farm in Chatsworth, Ontario. The album was mixed by Dean Nelson (Beck) and mastered by Broken Social Scene and Stars FOH Engineer, Martin Davis Kinack.

Mike Boguski

Mike Boguski is Blue Rodeo’s keyboardist, a position he’s held since 2008. But, like others in the group, his musical ambition extends beyond furthering the legacy of Canada’s roots rock institution.

Boguski’s new solo album Blues For The Penitent is perhaps the purest display of his talent to date, showcasing him alone at the piano on 12 instrumental pieces which, taken as a whole, tell a powerful, emotional story. It is a story that unexpectedly developed over a three-year period through sessions recorded by Cowboy Junkies founder Michael Timmins at his Toronto studio, along with sessions at Catherine North Studios in Hamilton, Ontario.

Boguski originally intended to lay down an album’s worth of material in a quick two-day burst, but that plan ultimately changed as major upheavals in his life began to unfold, and led him to explore improvisation more deeply than he ever had previously. It even prompted him to return to school and study with pioneering improvisational musician Casey Sokol at York University.

While many of the pieces on Blues For The Penitent are indeed constructed on the principles of free improvisation, the album is also built around themes and imagery obviously close to Boguski’s heart, such as “Madawaska Moonlight” and “Crossing The Lake,” along with a couple of beautiful renditions of Townes Van Zandt’s “To Live Is to Fly,” and Neil Young’s “On the Beach.”

Boguski is excited to work again with Blue Rodeo in 2019, but he also feels Blues For The Penitent is the beginning of a new direction for his own music that will take both he and listeners to unexpected places. Find out more at michaelboguski.com.
