Information on Live Shows at the Loft.

AUGUST 26 • 7pm

Experience a counterpoint of live classical music and carefully curated film. Acclaimed violinist Lynn Kuo (Natioanl Ballet of Canada Orchestra) plays a new, theatrical music work by composers Michael Pepa and Dennis Patrick - Squamish - for violin, tape and percussion....followed by a screening of the award-winning film 'Haida Gwaii - On The Edge Of The World.'

SEPTEMBER 8 • 7:30pm

The Toronto-based "Friends" boast six versatile musicians, four fine singers, three songwriters, a brilliant joke teller, the occasional fiery dragon, one Order of Canada, one Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal and one of the longest track records in Canadian Folk Music. This totally uncategorizable collection has been together, with a few personnel changes, since their inauguration at Toronto's Fiddler's Green coffeehouse in 1971. Nobody, not even the Friends themselves, can predict what might happen during one of their concerts, but it always includes humour, powerful vocal harmony, great musicianship, social commentary and an irresistible urge to dance.

The Friends were recipients of the 2003 Estelle Klein Award, given by the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals for service to folk music in Ontario.

September 18 • 7:30pm

The Juno Awards honor the best in Canadian music and in April 2017 Canada’s multi-award winning quartet THE FRETLESS was added to that iconic list of musicians when their third release, BIRD’S NEST,  was awarded Instrumental Album of the Year. THE FRETLESS is a new approach to folk music that has been gaining high acclaim around the world.  This unique band is taking string music to fascinating places as it transforms fiddle tunes and folk melodies into intricate, beautiful, high-energy arrangements.
