His 20 odd albums have achieved total sales of over half a million units, four of which are certified gold. Of Canadian folk artists in the mid-1970s, only Gordon Lightfoot was more popular. MacLean’s magazine has said "…unquestionably the most public performer in Canada today, and the most loved." 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS IN CONVERSATION SERIES

Each evening is like a perfectly mixed cocktail. Two parts conversation, one part live music, one part question and answer and splashed with a dash of the unexpected. Each evening includes 2 – 40 minute interview sets and ends with a post-show meet and greet. And, everyone comes away with the true story behind the person.

You'll never look at flying the same...it’s a trip of a lifetime, bring a sandwich.

Classic Albums Live Performs Led Zeppelin IV

Sat Oct 12 8:00 PM

One of the all-time greats.  Performing Led Zeppelin's fourth album at the Sanderson Centre will be a treasured moment for not just Zeppelin fans - but for all music lovers. This is serious stuff. We've proven ourselves with the Beatles and Pink Floyd but there's something death defying about boasting a 'note for note - cut for cut' claim when it comes to Zeppelin. Expect lots of guitars, mandolins, soaring vocals, drums that sound like cannons and song after song of absolute perfection. Expect greatness. – Craig Martin, CAL founder
