Recorded December 8, 2017, Terra Lightfoot’s Massey Hall concert took place three months after the release of her acclaimed album New Mistakes, which would go on to be nominated for a JUNO and longlisted for the Polaris Music Prize. For this memorable performance, Lightfoot was joined onstage by Daniel Lanois (who played guitar on “You Get High”), and Melissa McClelland (harmony vocals on “Stars Over Dakota”) of Whitehorse, who Lightfoot was supporting that evening. 

‘Playing Massey Hall was one of the most memorable moments of my career,” Lightfoot beams. “Last year, it seemed like my band and I had visited every part of the globe — Japan, Australia, Europe and the UK, plus Canada and the US. Along the way, I had a lot of incredible experiences, climbed mountains real and metaphoric. And Massey Hall was one. I was honoured to play that room, thrilled that the concert was captured and excited to be able to share it with fans.”

In the year since that landmark concert, Lightfoot and her band have played across North America, Europe and Australia, alongside artists such as Willie Nelson, The Posies, Toad the Wet Sprocket, The Sheepdogs, Jim Cuddy, Matt Mays and William Crighton.

Lightfoot continues to seek out new peaks, recently developing and curating The Longest Road Show, a new tour that will cross Ontario in February 2019, featuring a bill co-headlined by Lightfoot, Lindi Ortega and Begonia.

ABOUT LINDI ORTEGA

Lindi Ortega gives fair warning: “Don’t come any closer to my heart /If you’re afraid of the dark.” However, that shroud is slowly lifted in Liberty. As the narrative unfolds in this concept album, a central character emerges – one who finally sheds the darkness of her past and emerges into the light. The melodies and arrangements of Liberty draw on the epic work of Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone, who became one of Ortega’s musical obsessions during the writing and recording of Liberty. During the sessions at Battle Tapes studio in East Nashville, Ortega and producer Skylar Wilson (Justin Townes Earle, Rayland Baxter) scaled back the boot-stomping, throwback country approach that she’s known for, instead polishing a set of music that reflects her Mexican-Irish lineage. It is fitting that NPR’s All Things Considered has described Ortega as “genre-defying in both her music and her personal style.”

ABOUT BEGONIA
Begonia’s Alexa Dirks has never been able to fit into the box of being a "conventional woman". “I’m loud, I’m awkward and I’ve always taken up space. I've done things my whole life that some people would tell me weren't appropriate 'for a girl'.” That narrative that once tore Dirks down is now what empowers her to take charge of her own story, in her own way. Winnipeg-based Dirks is a Juno Award winner with her former group Chic Gamine. While she thrived off of the collaboration, once the band broke up she knew she was ready to go solo. As Begonia, Dirks is bold, brazen with her florid, surprising pop that is tempered with sensitivity and wisdom. Her 2017 debut EP, Lady in Mind, was listed on NPR’s 10 Artists You Need to Know and the track “Juniper” reached #1 on the CBC Music Charts. Dirks’ intimate lyrics and audacious pop style sound allows for her audience to relate to the messiness of life with an honesty that is refreshing.

Terra Lightfoot might have marked the first anniversary of the release of her acclaimed album New Mistakes, but she shows no signs of turning over the keys to the tour van. She has already logged more than 200 dates in support of the album, and today announced two weeks of live dates across Western Canada.

She’s already been warming up. Last week, Lightfoot joined Winnipeg native Randy Bachman onstage to help christen True North Square outside Bell MTS Place, with set highlights aired on Rogers Sportsnet and NBCSN before the Wednesday Night Hockey broadcast of the Jets-Leafs game. This weekend, Terra will perform with Jim Cuddy as part of JONI75, The Strombo Show’s tribute to Alberta-born musical giant Joni Mitchell (airing Nov 4, 8pm-12am on CBC Music).
