The Gladsome Gentleman A4 Print .jpg

The Gladsome Gentlemen is a progressive bluegrass band formed by four of Ottawa’s most seasoned pickers. Joe McDonald (guitar, vocals) Trevor Lubin (mandolin, vocals) Dylan Watts (banjo, vocals) and Duncan Reitbeock (Bass) play a mixture of original and traditional tunes with a modern gladsome twist. They are considered Ottawa’s happiest bluegrass band and when paired with their thoughtful songwriting, intricate instrumentals and virtuosic picking they are a delight to catch live.

Lost at the Junction explores the beauty between traditional and new, forgotten and undiscovered. Featuring local artists Lauren Casselman and Tom Henbest, this musical duo aims to create an intimate experience through old-time, folk and singer-songwriter sounds.

Lauren studied vocal performance at Carleton University with an emphasis in musical theatre. Passionate about sharing theatre with young people, she has directed several youth musicals here at the Old Town Hall and has toured schools with educational theatre companies. She trains a team of oxen, a husband and a dog.

Tom is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist who thrives in the obscure and often long-ignored historical music world. He has led the Upper Canada Village music department for the past decade. When he is not playing banjo or herding goats, Tom enjoys attending square dances and ceilidhs — especially when there is a complimentary lunch.

An intimate concert of Americana roots-rock live at the Old Town Hall, a 100 year old theatre in Winchester, ON.

Brock Zeman, and Ken Workman, both backed by a full band, will be performing live at The Old Town Hall in Winchester, ON, on May 25, 2023.

When it comes to storytelling, Brock Zeman is a master craftsman. The Canada-based singer-songwriter has spent the past 12 years carving and chiseling Americana soundscapes, drawing from roots-rock and alternative country. But what separates Zeman from his contemporaries isn’t a willingness to speak truth – it’s his unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville and the traditional framework of genre. What gives Zeman’s stories force isn’t that he’s just singing a narrative – he’s living it.

A native of Ottawa, Canada, Ken Workman was raised on the vinyl sounds of roots and began singing at age 11 in a Choir and quickly fell in love with music and wanted to learn more. He picked up his first guitar at age 15 and enrolled in lessons.

Tones of blue collar struggle and working-poor values line songs that breathe to life tastefully crafted melodies. A true roots-rock experience with a hint of pop, his live show demonstrates dynamics that can reduce a room to silence or fill a dance floor by exploding with a driving beat. His songs unite a heart full of emotion and a memory full of experiences of a working class childhood.
