Saint John based chamber folk trio Ladd and Lasses celebrate the release of their debut album "She Wanders' with a concert June 2nd at The Vogue in Miramichi. Tickets for the event are $15 in advance/$20 at the door, and will be available at Creative Grounds Cafe May 4th.
About Ladd and Lasses When Hilary Ladd asked Nienke Izurieta and Katie Bestvater to perform on her first full-length album, she was not expecting to make the transition from singer/songwriter to band member. Having backed up other Saint John artists (Leo Lafleur, Bad People) for the last four years, it was only a matter of time before the trio broke off on their own. What started off as another opportunity for Katie and Nienke to lend their talents to another set of tracks quickly became a chance for them to finally call a band their own. Thus, Ladd & Lasses was born.
Accomplished artists in their own rights, these three diverse musicians have come together with a passion for giving every song its due. A stunning singer with a gift for word play, Hilary spins her scrawled notes into beautiful lyrics and melodies. Then enter the soulful strings of Katie, cellist, and Nienke, violinist, to create a tapestry of harmonies that bring each song to new life. The result is a fusion of classical, folk and pop music with a penchant for epiphany-laden lyrics

The script is written and performed by award-winning international artist Dennis J. Hassell, directed by triple Dora Award nominee Tom Carson (five nationally touring productions), with original music composed by Emmy-winner and renowned recording artist Tom Szczesniak.
British comedian James Mullinger has taken Canada by storm. Sold out shows across the country, appearances on CBC's The Debaters, movies, TV shows, festivals, awards, magazines, stand up specials - since moving to the Maritimes three years ago he's done it all.
But he's putting movies and TV shows aside to go out and do what he loves most. Live stand up comedy. For all of Spring 2018 James is on the road again!
In April 2016, James sold out New Brunswick’s biggest indoor venue Harbour Station with his uniquely hilarious stand up show. This record breaking show was documented for a CBC documentary film 'City On Fire' which has aired across Canada to rave reviews and high ratings. The stand up special of the show itself was picked up by Hulu and Amazon Prime so his tales of life in Atlantic Canada are now being enjoyed by (or confusing!) people in Germany, Japan and America.
Since then James has toured extensively to packed houses across Canada and England and written and produced a big screen feature film starring actors from Downton Abbey and Twilight about his early years in stand up, which was described as "unmissable" by GQ Magazine and "essential viewing. A funny, realistic look at what it takes to become a stand up comedian," by the Montreal Times.
James is New Brunswick's biggest cheerleader. He loves it here and spends his time promoting New Brunswick across the world and raising money for local charities and non-profits. James has raised more than $100,000 for New Brunswick charities. He has also become one of Canada's top comics, being nominated for both a Just For Laughs comedy award and a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Live Show.
He also launched his own international magazine The Maritime Edit to share his love of Canada’s East Coast with the rest of the world.
This is his last tour for a while. Book now for this show, it will sell out.
