We are thrilled to announce that Jason Collett will be at the Hall on Saturday, March 5 as part of his tour supporting his new album Song and Dance Man.
Tickets are available starting Friday, February 5 at The Creemore Echo and online. $25 in advance, $30 at the door if available. Service fees apply to credit card and online purchases.
Jason Collett’s sixth full-length album, finds the iconic singer-songwriter back at centre stage. Featuring the bright production touch of Bahamas’ Afie Jurvanen, “Song And Dance Man” covers the trials and triumphs of the modern musician with poignant poetry:
If you can tweet something brilliant, you got a marketing plan
“There’s a cool economy to Afie’s approach that lets the record breathe and allows it to say more with less, something I worked hard at hardly working at in writing the songs,” says Collett. “Keeping a light touch, keeping it short.”
Having spent the years since 2012’s Reckon finding himself further engaged in the growing success of his Basement Revue concert series – which Avening Hall was lucky to host in 2014 – the Toronto indie-troubadour describes this record as a liberating process distilled in a stretch of deep domestic reverie.
“I like writing songs and for the first time in my life I felt no rush to hustle them or myself out the door,” says Collett. “I let some dust settle, some weeds grow, putter about at home…”
The result is a dynamic addition to a strong body of work. Song And Dance Man may be Jason Collett’s finest effort yet – back in the spotlight, more comfortable than ever in the guise of entertainer:
You got to do what you can when you’re a Song And Dance Man.
Collett will be backed by members of Zeus and will have a special guest with him during his appearance at Avening.
Tickets are $25 in advance. Available starting Friday, February 5
