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.

A Man Called Wrycraft Presents a Tribute to Bruce Cockburn
Featuring Claire Lynch, Tom Wilson, Elizabeth Shepherd, Don Ross, Michael Occhipinti, Jason Fowler, Skydiggers, Countermeasures and Joel Saunders
Advance $30 / Door $35 *
This will be Michael Wrycraft’s 81st concert at Hugh’s Room Live!
Michael has worked with Bruce for 21 years, designing 10 albums (and working on an 11th) and his love, respect and passion for Bruce has grown every year since listening to his albums in art class in high school, so this show is a very special one for for him!
If you’ve ever been to a Wrycraft show, you know the variety, the energy, the passion and sheer curiosity which guides him when he assembles great musicians, famous or soon to be famous, for one of his rich aural circuses. Well, this exceptional line-up of performers is amongst his top artist line-ups ever.
Jason Fowler and Tom Wilson were part of the 2010 Tribute at Massey Hall. Tom has also recorded a number of Cockburn tunes and has played with Bruce in Bambi & The Dearhunters! (Blackie & The Rodeo Kings with Bruce)
An International Award-winning finger style guitarist, the phenomenal Don Ross was one of the performers at Bruce’s Induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2019.
Michael Occhipinti has put out 2 albums of Bruce Cockburn music and Michael and Elizabeth Shepherd have a Bruce Cockburn show that they tour!
Claire Lynch is an American Bluegrass legend with 3 Grammy Nominations and 8 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards!
The Skydiggers, Juno Award Winning, Canadian favourite… well… nuff said!
International award-winning, 13-Piece A Cappella group, Countermeasure will be there to interpret Bruce in stunning vocalese!
Joel Saunders is a young guitar wunderkind from Guelph, Ontario that Michael saw at a music conference and realized that he MUST be on this show!
