LUCAS CHAISSON ANNOUNCES 2016 AUTUMN ‘TELLING TIME’ TOUR – award-winning singer songwriter heads East!
(Halifax) This September, Edmonton Music Awards Singer Songwriter of the Year (2016) Lucas Chaisson will hit the road with celebrated bassist Dean Kheroufi, and head East for the first time since the release of his award-winning album ‘Telling Time.’
Maritime music fans may already be familiar with the Chaisson name, whether it be ECMA-winning Tim, (cousin) or Lucas’ grandfather Foncey (a favourite at the Rollo Bay Fiddle Festival); his tour promises to be a homecoming of sorts.
Lucas has two dates scheduled in PEI, Sept 18-20. Other performances of note include debuts in Montreal at La Cagibi Sept 8, Ottawa, Sept 14 at the Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club, at Toronto’s Cameron House (front room) Sept 24, and a return to Guelph after a sold-out debut in 2012. Audiences can expect to laugh, cry, holler and everything in between as they take in a skillful, earnest and unique take on Roots music.
