Scott Merritt brought to you by Folkus Concert series
Sat, 22 April 2017, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM EDT
Scott Merritt actually produced a number of our season opener, Garnet Rogers’ albums, including the most recent (indeed, he has produced many beloved albums over the years, having worked with Fearing and White, Fred Eaglesmith, Kevin Breit, Tannis Slimmon, Matt Anderson, Mike Stevens, and Ian Tamblyn). He has recently started touring with his own material again, and we are thrilled that he was willing to join us on our stage. His own compositions are thoughtful and delicate. His guitar work is nimble without being egotistical, and his lyrics are well served by his slightly husky voice.
Opening for Merritt is Shawville native Ursula Schultz. Steeped in Ottawa valley fiddle tradition. Schultz’s genres consist of Celtic rock , Irish, Crossover and French Canadian. Schultz brings her own spin on traditional tunes as well her own compositions. She has played at the CityFolk Festival, The Algonquin Commons Theatre, Festival Hall and has played a couple times at Under The Pines Music Festival as well as their Christmas series. Schultz has played with The Keith Glass Band and has opened for Craig Cardiff. She keeps active with Twin Flames, a touring folk band from Ottawa Ont. And Outside I’m a Giant, an indie band from Wakefield QC.
Doors open at 7:30pm. Seating is not reserved.
