Hugh’s Room Forced to Move Due to Rent Hike

As many of you will now have heard, that despite months of negotiations with our landlord, we have failed to come to agreement on terms based on fair market value. As a result we will be forced to close our doors at our current location on March 31, 2020.

It is our intention to honour as many of our show bookings and tickets as possible, but it is going to take us a bit of time to secure an alternate venue. We are confident that all shows on the calendar will have a home and as soon as an alternate venue is secured, we will be notifying all ticket holders immediately. We ask patrons to kindly not reach out to our box office for updates in the interim.

Classic Lightfoot Live
Advance $40 / Door $45*

Doors: 6:00pm
Performance: 8:30pm

Classic Lightfoot Live celebrates the music and the long time folk-rock legend’s career and his stories from the early 60s, through his 1970s fame, up to his last studio recording in 2002. Gordon Lightfoot is credited with helping to define the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and 1970s.

Take a trip down memory lane with Classic Lightfoot Live!

The performance features John Stinson, a long time Ontario musician, as lead vocalist. John has been entertaining audiences around Ontario for over 30 years. He has been widely praised for his uncanny sonic resemblance to Gord, and his attention to replicating Gord’s original studio recordings. “To me Lightfoot’s music really does reflect what it means to be Canadian. His lyrics tell stories; his stories, our stories. They reach out and touch audiences in deep emotional ways.” Playing 6 and 12 string guitars just like Gord, John is backed by the Classic Lightfoot Live band, an impressive cast of musicians bringing the music from the studio albums to life. Steve Eyers is on bass guitar, Eric Kidd on lead guitar, JG Jones on keyboards and Malcolm Gould is on percussion. Each of them has been influenced by Lightfoot’s music and the passion comes through in every performance.

Notice of Postponement Due to COVID-19

Monday, March 16, 2020

Like everyone else in the world, Hugh’s Room Live is closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19 outbreak. Based on the information currently available, we have made the painfully difficult decision to postpone all shows through to the end of April, effective immediately.
If you have tickets for a postponed show, please watch for more information about rescheduling. We will notify every ticket holder when a new date and venue are found for each the shows on our calendar. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled show, we ask everyone to please consider their ticket purchase a donation to Hugh’s Room Live instead of requesting a refund. As a non-profit registered charity, we will gladly send you a tax receipt for the equivalent amount of your purchase.

Like so many art, culture and hospitality organizations, our artists and staff are struggling greatly during this time. We encourage everyone in our audience here to continue supporting live music wherever possible until we reach the other side of this pandemic that has so devastated the arts and culture of our society. We will of course be reevaluating our decision on a daily basis as we navigate the new circumstances around the pandemic, please know that your continued support, understanding and advocacy in the interim will add much-needed sustainability to our venue and industry at large. Thank you.

Pierre Bensusan * POSTPONED
Advance $40 / Door $45*

Doors: 6:00pm
Performance: 8:30pm

We regret to inform ticket holders and interested ticket holders that due to the outbreak of Coronavirus, the artist has unfortunately decided to postpone this show until a future date.

For further questions or enquiries, please contact our box office at (416) 533-5483.

“The way the guitar would want to sound if it played itself.”

Winner of the Independent Music Award, in the Live Performance Album category for his latest triple live album “Encore” (2014), “Rose d’Or” of the Montreux Festival for his first album, “Près de Paris” (Switzerland, 1976), “Best World Music Guitar Player ” by the readers of Guitar Player Magazine (USA, 2008), Pierre Bensusan is recognized as one of the premier musicians of our time.

Described by the L.A. Times as “one of the most unique and brilliant acoustic guitar veterans in the world music scene today”, Pierre’s name became synonymous with contemporary acoustic guitar genius, long before the terms New Age, New Acoustic Music or World Music were invented. He has the ability to make a single guitar sound like an entire band as he brings the audience on a mesmerizing musical journey. And yet, Bensusan is more than what any musician or music lover expects from a guitarist. He is a composer as well as a bilingual and a brave improvisational vocalist, melding whistles and resonant low notes with something like his own scat technique.

Join us on April 23 as we gather at Hugh’s Room Live to witness the spectacular live show by Pierre Bensusan. Tickets available right now.
