The James Clark Institute Returns to the Linsmore Tavern!!!

Thursday night one of our favourite original artists returns to the Linsmore Tavern for a night of some of his original well-written pop songs!  The James Clark Institute is back, featuring the super-talented James Clark on guitar and vocals!! With a wink and a nod to Toronto’s “Clarke Institute of Psychiatry” (now CAMH), The James Clark Institute is the musical guise for the singer and songwriter inside of James Clark. Confronting the ghosts of his past, James twists and turns his own personal demons into witty, well-crafted pop tunes.  With inspirations like Elvis Costello, Ray Davies, and Warren Zevon and with comparisons to John Lennon, The Beatles and Bob Dylan, James established The James Clark Institute project in 2004.  The JCI’s current live line up consists of James: vocals, guitar and harmonica; Chris Bennett: guitars, vocals; Jeff Dunk: bass; Greg Condie: keys, vocals and Gord Fynes: drums.  Come and check out this extremely talented band and support some original, local music!  The show starts at 9:30pm, no cover!!
