Dala, featuring Sheila Carabine and Amanda Walther
A tribute evening to Neil Young will be on February 14 at the Algonquin Theatre in Huntsville, Muskoka, Ontario, Canada.
Young’s music has inspired and entertained generations of music lovers all over the world, and fans of the artist will not want to miss a concert coming to the Algonquin Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 14. Titled Neil Young, Borrowed Tunes, the show will feature a collection of up-and-coming Canadian musicians covering songs written by Young and recorded on two albums.
“This may well be the show of 2009,” noted Karin Terziano, Algonquin Theatre manager.
Mike Roth of Big Bold Sun Music produced the first tribute album to Young in 1994. Titled Borrowed Tunes, the album was released as a two-CD set, one featuring acoustic songs and one featuring rock-oriented ones. A second two-CD musical tribute album, Borrowed Tunes II, was released in 2007, with all proceeds from sales of both albums going to the Bridge School and Toronto-based Safehaven.
Several performers featured on Borrowed Tunes are coming together for the one-night show in Huntsville. Accompanied by a multimedia slide presentation highlighting crucial moments in Young’s career, the show will be a great way to celebrate one of Canada’s famous artists.
“This is unique as far as tribute concerts go, because it pays homage to Neil with creative interpretations of Neil’s greatest songs by vital up-and-coming artists,” said Roth.
Joining Dala in the show will be Liam Titcomb, a Canadian musician and actor, and his father, Brent Titcomb, an internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter, musician, comedian and actor.
Also performing are Tom Wilson and his new band Lee Harvey Osmond, Adam Crossley, and jazz violinist Doug Cameron. Cameron is one of the true innovators of the contemporary and electric violin. With eight CDs to his credit, Cameron has long been a favourite on jazz radio internationally. Rounding out the list are Daniel Roth, Adrian Vanelli and AJ Sanderson of Harpoon Dodger, and soul-folk songstress Layah Jane.
