TekSavvy Main Stage
Confederation Park Laurier Ave & Elgin Street Ottawa, ON K1P 5J2

Serena Ryder
TekSavvy Main Stage at 8:30 pm
Serena Ryder is one of Canada’s stars with a vast vocal range. She started singing in public at seven and began writing her own material at the age of eleven. She released her first independent CD in 1999. CBC Radio radio exposure attracted the attention of singer Hawksley Workman, who signed her to his label. Her 2006 album, which featured cover versions of songs by Canadian songwriters, was a breakthrough, exposing a large audience to her full-throated versions of songs like “This Wheel’s On Fire” and “Sisters Of Mercy.” In 2008, Ryder won the JUNO Award for Best New Artist, and followed that the next year by winning the Adult Alternative Album category for the album Is It O.K. In 2012, she scored her first U.S. hit with the single “Stompa,” which led to an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In 2014, she performed O Canada to a massive television audience for the opening ceremonies of the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto, and co-hosted the JUNO Awards, where she won both Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.
The Jerry Cans
Tartan Homes Stage at 7:30 pm
Credit Tanya Tagaq for helping to bring Inuit throat singing into the mainstream, paving the way for bands like Iqaluit’s Jerry Cans to get noticed beyond their remote Northern community. The band—Andrew Morrison, Nancy Mike, Gina Burgess, Brendan Doherty and Steve Rigby—represents the kind of musical cross-pollination that occurs around the world. In addition to using tradition Inuit materials, the Jerry Cans pull from country music, folk and reggae to create a highly distinctive sound. With songs that are primarily written in Inuktitut, the band sings about Northern pride, challenging the perceptions about life there and carrying a powerful political message. The quintet’s debut album, Nunavuttitut, was released in 2012. Two other recordings followed in 2014 and 2016, and the band has toured extensively across Canada and as far afield as Australia.
Gypsophilia
TekSavvy Main Stage at 6:30 pm

The Halifax septet is one of the leading purveyors of the string-driven music of gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt. Featuring guitarists Ross Burns, Alec Frith and Nick Wilkinson, along with violinist Gina Burgess and bassist Adam Fine, the band has more than enough firepower to recreate the intricate melodies of Reinhardt and his gypsy compatriots. Trumpeter Matt Myer and multi-instrumentalist Sageev Oore broaden the band’s scope, allowing it to stretch into areas that reference tango, klezmer, hard bop and even funk. It’s a heady mix, and the band has continued to explore new areas on its four albums. The winner of multiple East Coast Music Awards, Gypsophilia is a popular live attraction, known for its high-energy shows that are spiced with instrumental virtuosity and humour.

Hannah Georgas
Tartan Homes Stage at 10:30 pm

Even in a country as rich with distinctive women singer-songwriters as Canada, Newmarket native Hannah Georgas stands out. Longlisted twice for the Polaris Music Prize and a multiple JUNO Award nominee, Georgas released her third full-length recording, For Evelyn, in mid-2016. Her career kicked off in Vancouver with open-mic shows after she had moved west to study psychology at the University of Victoria. Recognized immediately as a heart-on-sleeve performer, Georgas built a large local base through constant exposure and highly focused personal networking. It paid off, with her first EP, The Beat Stuff, becoming a cult classic and winning CBC airplay. Her first full album, This Is Good, found her mining her acoustic folk roots, but she switched to a more pop-oriented sound for her self-titled follow-up in 2012. For her third recording, inspired by her aged grandmother, Georgas extended her sonic palette even further afield, composing at the piano rather than on guitar, expanding her use of synthesizer and introducing horns.

(Discovery Series)

Show at 6:00 pm

La Nouvelle Scène - Studio A
333 King Edward Ave Ottawa, ON K1N 7M5

Perch Hen Brock & Rain
Take one improvising couple from New York City, add another from Amsterdam. Stir. That’s the formula for Perch Hen Brock & Rain—short form for veteran improvisers Ab Baars, Ig Henneman, Ingrid Laubrock and Tom Rainey. Saxophonist Baars and violist Henneman are stalwart members of Holland’s New Dutch Swing movement and collaborate frequently. Drummer Rainey has long been a first-call sideman on New York’s improv scene, appearing on more than 80 recordings. German-born Laubrock moved to New York in 2008 and quickly became one of the city’s most dynamic saxophonists. Since late 2014 the quartet has been coming together periodically to combine their distinctive voices and musical experiences. Those diverse elements make for highly varied soundscapes, which can include the free improvisation you might expect to far more meditative passages that reference chamber music. The band’s most-recent recording, Live @ The Jazz Happening Tampere, was released last year.

National Arts Centre Theatre

Bill Frisell & Thomas Morgan
Everybody loves guitarist Bill Frisell. On his ECM recording debut of 1982, his pristine sound and sensitive selection of just the right notes were immediately captivating, whether unfolding lyrically or turning toward shy, sly fun. A fixture on that era’s “downtown” improvisers scene, he was simultaneously at the core of avant-garde composer and saxophonist John Zorn’s circle and heir apparent to guitarist Jim Hall, the epitome of selectivity and good taste. Frisell recorded with Hall, as he has with his colleagues John Scofield, Vernon Reid, Mike Stern, Vinicius Cantuária, and Jakob Bro, and such varied session leaders as New Orleans laureate Allen Toussaint, country-rock-roots singer Lucinda Williams, saxophonist Charles Lloyd, blueswoman Bonnie Raitt and Paul Simon. Through the years, Frisell has has adapted works by Charles Ives and scored the films of Buster Keaton, but his signature is that of a high plains drifter. First-call bassist Thomas Morgan has been a regular in Frisell’s recent groups. This is their first tour as a duet.

With two North American tours and over 100 shows played including appearances at SXSW 2017, Pop Montreal, the group is making there mark in the indie scene.  With the release of the debut album, Modern Phase on April 28 it seems that Hoan will not be having a downtime soon.
