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!!

Tim Bradford Live at the Linsmore!!!

This Thursday Night, The extremely talented, Original Country Artist Tim Bradford is back at the Linsmore Tavern for his first show at the bar since the release of his newest album, "Drinking Alone". 

Tim's newest album, "Drinking Alone" is about humility, denial and rediscovery. It was inspired by heartache and the loss of home, livelihood and personal identity. Naturally, it's a party album. 

With 10 original songs (plus one by the Hag) the album weaves between rockabilly, Texas-shuffles and Appalachian old-time music. The record was produced by Mike Olsen (Arcade Fire, Ohbijou) and was released independently on January 23rd.

Tim will be performing songs from his newest album, as well as a bunch of his other original material! Who knows maybe he'll throw in an odd cover! One thing we do know is that Tim will be playing a ton of good County music and if that's what you enjoy, come check Tim out because not only does he write great music, but he's a helluva an entertainer! No Cover, the show starts at 9pm!!
