Harpdog Brown & The TRAVELIN’ BLUES SHOW with Sugar Brown: Saturday, September 9. Doors: 7:30. Show: 8:00. $25 –online or at door. Maple Blues award-winning Harpdog Brown is happily touring his HarpdogFoodshare_09_17authentic Travelin’ Blues Show in support of his new ground-breaking album Travelin’ WithThe Blues. Canada’s premier ‘old school’ harp wizard has never sounded better.  He arrives with Sugar Brown whose dark, sweet, and inconsolable blues has brought him much attention and many awards. Sugar Brown’s blues originated while at the University of Chicago. By day, he studied; by night he learned to play the blues on Chicago’s famed West Side.  And now, he’s an Associate Professor of East Asian Studies at the University of Toronto by day and he’s still playing those blues by night.
This concert supports Hamilton FoodShare. A percentage of the proceeds and 100 percent from the raffle/silent auction will go directly to FoodShare. Long & Mcquade have donated a 7 Harmonica Kit. What a night; bring food; bring a donation! There will be a cash bar. www.harpdogbrown.com  www.SugarBrownMusic.com https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9zvGO_NR_I&list=PLBxSRWqZlnm9Tim9f471UEyx88lq9L09s

POR LA VIDA SIEMPRE 1973_09_17

 

POR LA VIDA…SIEMPRE!!! Opening: September 9 (11am-4pm)Two weeks only: 4 to 15 September. Opening: September 9 – 11:00am to 4:00pm. FOR LIFE ALWAYS!!! is the once aborted and now restored exhibition of the series of Antifascist Posters that were conceived in Santiago, Chile through the State Technical University. Exhibitions of the 18 posters were to take place in 500 simultaneous locations on September 11, 1973 the day the military coup led by Augusto Pinochet took place. Presidente Salvador Allende was scheduled to inaugurate the central exhibit at the university. The university´s main building was attacked, the organizers imprisoned and the exhibition destroyed. From those 500 sets of 18 posters, only one set of the original prints survived, and it has now been restored to the original set in remembrance of POR LA LA VIDA…SIEMPRE!!!, the exhibition intended to open over 44 years ago.
Violeta Parra‘s unpublished art work, titled CONTRA LA GUERRA (1963) accompanies this show as part of the commemoration of the centenary of Latin America’s greatest singer-songwriter and peace activist who took her life 50 years ago. Due to the historical importance of the messages and their current validity, this vital show is a must see.
Opening: A Tribute to Violeta Parra: Music. Art. Dance. Film: Appearances by: Marcelo Puente, Lil Medrano, Alec Dempster and Teresa Irene Barrera; the group Raices Latinoamericanas AFH, and the film: Cantar con Sentido, a biography of Violeta Parra.
