Your Tickets for Postponed or Cancelled Events:

Our Ticket Seller box office has set the following policies for current ticket-holders:

Postponed Events:

Ticket Seller will hold your tickets and notify you directly about re-scheduled performance dates as soon as we know them. Artists are wanting to re-schedule and this process is underway. Please check Ticketseller.ca regularly for updates.

If re-scheduled performance dates do not work for you, as a not-for-profit box office, Ticket Seller is asking ticket-holders to take a credit on their account and apply it to future events instead of an immediate refund.

Refunds incur added non-recoverable banking and credit card charges that altogether would have a significant financial impact on Ticket Seller.

Cancelled Events:

To date commercial touring events and our Society’s own SPOTLIGHT Shows are re-scheduling and therefore are postponed. New dates to be confirmed shortly.

For those shows that do cancel, ticket-holders will have the same option to take a credit on their account for future events.

IF taking a credit on your Ticket Seller account is not possible at this time, please consider making a donation to the not-for-profit for any of their cancelled events.

For refund requests, we will be processing refunds in stages and in consultation with booking agents over the coming days and weeks.

Thank you for your patience and support,

$30 General Admission

While Verch is perhaps best known for playing traditional fiddle styles from her native Ottawa Valley, Canada, her performances extend into old-time American and Appalachian styles and beyond, for a well-rounded tour-de-force of North Americana sounds. Verch tours with world-class musicians as a trio, featuring acoustic guitar, bass and clawhammer banjo in addition to Verch’s vocals, fiddle and foot percussion.

"Brandon not only plays his guitar but he plays his audience like a ringmaster in his own circus, always looking for new ways to entertain."-Teresa Mallam, Prince George Free Press.

What separates this Juno award nominated artist from the rest of the pack besides his world-class musicianship and song writing, is his ability to connect and involve the audience in his live shows.

After many nominations by The Maple Blues Awards, (Canada's national blues awards) this Yukonion guitar slinger finally won his first MBA last year for (Acoustic Act of the Year). The nominations were just released again, and Brandon once again has a nomination... (Guitarist of the Year). We'll have to wait and see what happens. Last year he had nominations for (Song Writer of the Year), (Acoustic Act of the Year) and (Album of the Year) for his latest solo album; Here on Earth.

What separates Brandon from the rest of the pack besides his world-class musicianship and song writing, is his ability to connect and involve the audience in his live shows.

Madison Violet is a Juno-nominated Canadian music duo composed of singer-songwriters Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac. After 20 years together, Madison Violet are as much wanderers as they are musicians. It is a career filled with endless roads stretching into the horizon, winding through changing landscapes, each kilometer traveled carrying with it the promise of inspiration. Perhaps that is the secret of what has made Madison Violet such an enduring band. Because with each new town, each new venue, their curiosity grows, their love of music deepens, their desire to push musical boundaries expands.
