MERA Sunday Schoolhouse Concert


Music at the MERA Sunday Schoolhouse Concerts tends to be centred around the folk, roots, alt-country genres but celtic, bluegrass, pop/folk, Jazz/funk and Gypsie/Klezmer eclectic acts have made appearances as well. The common element with all the performances is excellent musicianship combined with the ability to communicate the joy of live music in an intimate setting.

Perhaps the best way to describe what to expect is to list some of the musicians who have performed within the last several years:

Corin Raymond, CR Avery, Kate Weeks & Grant Simpson, Jim Bryson, Jason Fowler, Jeremy Fisher, Terry Tufts & Katherine Briggs, Jonathan Byrd, Evalyn Parry, Boxcar Boys, David Ross McDonald, Trent Severn, Ken Whiteley, Joey Wright, Shawna Caspi, New Country Rehab, Gathering Sparks, Jory Nash, Bombadils, Slocan Ramblers, Karen Savoca, David Newland, Garnet Rogers, Fireweed, Ben Miller & Anita McDonald, Alison Lupton, Rankin & Robertson, Maire Ni Chathasaigh & Chris Newman, Tritones, Clan Hannigan, Brian MacMillan, Annie Sumi, James Keelaghan, Tripod, Oh Susanna, Long Sault Trio, JW-Jones, Wendell Ferguson & Katherine Wheatley, Valdy, Twin Flames, Doc MacLean, Lynne Hanson & Blair Hogan, Martyn Joseph, Neville Wells with Frank Koller & Maureen Young, Ian Tamblyn, Al Lerman, The Pairs, Basset, Boreal, Melwood Cutlery, Roxy Swan & Peter Brown, Mia Kelly, Greg Runions Jazz Trio, The Magpies, Moonfruits with Tragedy Ann, Shane Pendergast.
