Like a warm musical breeze that blows through California’s hills and canyons – across its mystical high desert and into the heart of America – High South has captured the same evocative spirit that gave lift to such high soaring bands as the Byrds, CSNY and the Eagles.
Blending the poetry of Greenwich Village in the 60’s with the unmistakable harmony of Laurel Canyon in the 70’s, the High South sound exudes the magic and timelessness of both these eras, while infusing a palpable new millennium sensibility.
High South band mates – Kevin Campos, Jamey Garner and Phoenix Mendoza – three gifted “lead singer-songwriters” delivering one undeniable voice – are produced by Josh Leo.
“Their harmonies are so perfect and I smile as it takes me back to the first time I heard CROSBY, STILLS, NASH, AND YOUNG…” – Kim Carnes

LIONA BOYD An Intimate Evening With The First Lady of the Guitar! COMING TO SELECT ONTARIO THEATRES TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, JUNE 22nd!
Liona Boyd, since her 1975 debut performance at Carnegie Hall, New York, has enthralled audiences worldwide with her romantic and unique brand of classical, folk and world music. Tracing the timeline—Spanish-British heritage, emigrating to Canada in 1959, “falling in love with classical guitar at the age of 13”, graduating from the University of Toronto with a music degree in 1972—the traditional classical music path seemed quite clear. However, Liona embarked on a far more adventurous journey. In addition to her solo career, she began touring with and opening for Canadian folk legend, Gordon Lightfoot. She went on to perform and record with many artists of diverse genres, a small sampling of whom include Chet Atkins, Canadian Brass, Eric Clapton, Olivia Newton-John, Yo Yo Ma and Al Di Meola. Also spanning a wide range of styles, Liona has released 28 studio, live or compilation albums, five of which went gold, and three platinum. No stranger to awards and accolades, her highlights include five Junos, the Order of Canada, five honorary doctorates and, in June 2018, the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award from the JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition.
“Exceptional sensitivity and an impressive sense of dedication” – Los Angeles Times
“Nothing short of fantastic. Liona takes one’s breath away.” – Denver Post
“A quiet poetic brilliance” – The Plain Dealer, Cleveland
Following her 2009 diagnosis of focal dystonia, Liona tweaked her playing style, added singing to her repertoire and two years ago began touring with protege, Andrew Dolson, classically trained in both guitar and voice. Audiences can anticipate solo and duet classical guitar pieces, songs—both familiar and new, personal anecdotes from a storied career … all delivered with charm, humour and grace.
Don’t miss An Intimate Evening with ‘the first lady of guitar’ … Liona Boyd!

The Good Brothers Formed in Richmond Hill, Toronto in 1969, this trio of brothers, including twins Brian and Bruce Good, performed in and around Toronto. They received their first big break in 1970 when they backed James Ackroyd on his album James & the Good Brothers. The album, which was released on Columbia and aided by members of the Grateful Dead, catapulted the group into the Canadian country music spotlight. The Festival Express found the group touring with Janis Joplin, the Band, Ten Years After, and the Grateful Dead. They also performed with Gordon Lightfoot and John Hammond. In 1976, the Good Brothers released their self-titled debut album, which was a mix of their traditional roots, folk, and country background with a range of rock blended in. The album earned them a Juno Award for Best Country Group, an award they received each year from 1976 to 1983. They also received a gold record for sales of their live album in 1981. In 1990, banjo player and guitarist Larry Good took time away from the band and was replaced by a son of one of the Good brothers, Travis Good. Renamed the Good, the band continued to perform until Larry returned in 2002. Travis Good left the band to form his own group, the Sadies. That same year, the trio toured Europe and released One True Thing. Throughout the decade, the Good Brothers continued to perform internationally and at various folk music festivals, and in 2004 they were inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Known for their spirited live shows, they continued to release live albums like 2005’s Live at the Rattlesnake Saloon and 2008’s Restricted Goods. In 2015, the brothers were honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Toronto Musicians Association followed a year later by an induction into the North American Country Music Association International Hall of Fame. 2017 saw the release of their 16th studio album, Wide Awake Dreamin’. In 2018 The Good Brothers, Larry (banjo), Brian (guitar) and Bruce (autoharp) and their all-star backing group continue to tour extensively in both Canada and Europe.
