Plus support: Steve Hill 

The legendary Wishbone Ash – pioneers of the twin-guitar rock that influenced groups from Thin Lizzy to Iron Maiden – return to the Tivoli in October 2017!

Hear rock classics such as The King Will Come, Throw Down The Sword & Blowin’ Free alongside their latest work. As one of the busiest bands in rock, we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment!

Wishbone Ash embarked on the nascent Progressive Rock scene in 1969, taking full advantage of a fertile musical environment where they produced a distinctive brand of melodic rock. Inspired equally by British folk traditions and American jazz and R&B, the group played to public and critical acclaim.
More than 45 years later, having pioneered the use of twin lead guitars, Wishbone Ash has gained worldwide recognition, based firmly on a regime of relentless touring. And their latest studio release, “Blue Horizon,” continues to solidify their reputation as a musical force to be reckoned with.

 

Support: Steve Hill

Since the March 4th release of his long-awaited Solo Recordings Volume 3, Montreal’s one-man blues band Steve Hill has nabbed the attention of DJs, reviewers and thousands of new fans around the world. He recently revealed a video for the single “Dangerous” that is closing in on 900 thousand views on Facebook and has been shared over 14 thousand times.

Critics around the globe have been praising Hill’s bold and unique approach to the one-man band concept with the album impacting on the !Earshot campus and community radio charts and sold out concerts in his home province.

Here’s what some of the reviewers have to say about Solo Recordings Volume 3

 “This guy must really be something live because his records are wild affairs.  A one man band led by his shredder side, the Canadian award winning electric white boy with the blues must have traded his soul for something at the other end of Highway 61 to play so possessed.  No matter what he’s doing here, he makes it all his own and makes it unique… This is the sound of a wild man in his natural setting and must hear stuff if this genre is right up your alley.” – The Midwest Record

“Hill should make some room on his award shelf once this volume reaches his fans.” – Winnipeg Free Press

“If someone was not to tell you the fact that Steve Hill is a one man band there is not a chance in the world that you would be able figure it out. The skill and style which Steve possesses and expresses throughout this album simply put is extraordinary.” – Kingston Music Reviews

“Chock full of nasty guitar riffs and raunchy blues vocals, Volume 3 strikes all the right chords.” – Scene Magazine

When it comes to one-man bands, guitarist and singer extraordinaire Steve Hill has no limits. The truest definition of a one-man band; Hill performs standing up while singing and playing guitar, his feet playing bass drum, snare drum, hi-hats and with a drum stick fused to the head of his trusty guitar, any other percussion within reach. An overnight sensation 20 years in the making, Steve Hill is an ambitious and raucous force to be reckoned with on the Canadian and international blues-rock scene. “The one-man band style has made him the top star in the Canadian blues scene right now.” (Bob Mersereau, CBC)

Following the success of his JUNO nominated Solo Recordings Volume 1, which also won album of the year at the International Blues Challenge in 2013, and JUNO Award winner Solo Recordings Volume 2, Steve Hill is set to release Solo Recordings Volume 3 (March 4, 2016).  Solo Recordings Volume 3 features originals that are outright rockers (Damned, Dangerous, Rhythm All Over, Smoking Hot Machine, Can’t Take It With You, Walkin’ Grave) to more acoustic-based melodic tracks (Slowly Slipping Away, Troubled Times, Emily) and three reimagined and rearranged covers (Still A Fool & A Rollin Stone, Rollin & Tumblin / Stop Breaking Down, Going Down That Road Feeling Bad). Solo Recordings Volume 3 shows an artist at the top of his game and proves why the Montreal Gazette called him “the meanest guitar player in Canada”.

“When I started the Solo Recordings projects four years ago, I had hopes that the songs and performances would resonate with my existing fan-base”, says Hill. “I am constantly trying to improve on the songs, both lyrically and technically, live and recorded, in order to keep the fans excited about my material and live shows. I feel that Solo Recordings Volume 3 is my best work yet and I am excited to present it”.

Hill’s reputation as an exciting performer has provided him the opportunity to showcase his talents at some of Canada’s biggest music festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Ottawa Blues Festival, Mont Tremblant International Blues Festival, Thunder Bay Blues Festival, Kitchener Blues Festival and more. Steve Hill is clearly in his element as a solo artist and one-man band, inviting listeners into a world of musical madness in the form of blues and rock ‘n’ roll.
