The Niagara Stage Presents: Devin Cuddy with Kalle Mattson

Kalle Mattson
Devin Cuddy

Thursday Sept 27 – 8:00PM – 9:00PM
Botanical Gardens – The Niagara Stage
Devin Cuddy has always made music his way, and some might argue, the hard way. As the son of one of Canada’s most beloved singer/songwriters, Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy, country rock has been the soundtrack to Devin’s entire life—he was born the same week Blue Rodeo began recording its 1987 debut album, Outskirts. But from the moment Devin was drawn to playing music, he was determined to get as close as possible to the sources of all the sounds he loved, whether they were made by rock and roll’s founding fathers, the Grand Ole Opry’s honky-tonk heroes, or Jelly Roll Morton and the kings of jazz.

Kalle Mattson

Thursday Sept 27 – 6:45PM – 7:30PM
Botanical Gardens – The Niagara Stage
Folk music is about storytelling, which is something that Kalle Mattson excels at. However, since the release of the Polaris Music Prize nominated Someday, The Moon Will Be Gold (2014) and the JUNO Award nominated EP Avalanche (2015), Mattson has progressed beyond the purely folk tag that has accompanied him thus far and is examining what it means to be a ‘folk-artist’ in 2018. The discovery is Mattson’s new mantra: “folk is dead.”

Priceless, Bid with your time, not your dime

Priceless Art Auction

Pay with your Time not your Dime

Thursday Sept 27 – 6:30PM – 9:30PM
Botanical Gardens

The Priceless Art Auction event allows attendees to bid with their time, not their dime.

Pieces of art are auctioned off to young professionals. The winner of each piece of artwork is the ‘Yo-Pro’ who pledges the most volunteer hours. These hours are worked off at valued not-for-profit organizations. Each piece of artwork will hang in the office or building of the sponsors until the volunteer hours are completed by the winner of the piece.
