Run Maggie Run Live at Mulberry


Formed in January of 2016, it didn’t take long for the Hamilton-based collective to find their sound. Musically formed from a unique medley of influences, ranging from folk to prog-metal, and lyrically influenced by old folk legends, the result is something truly special; powerful music that sticks with you long after the final notes fade. Their debut album, released in May 2017, is available now on all streaming platforms and via their website at rmrband.com! “Playful, throwback soul grooves in their indie mix” -Ride the Tempo “It’s that mix of indie rock and traditional folk styles that is making them stand out” - The View Magazine

Low Country Hill Live at Mulberry


Low Country Hill is the moniker for Hamilton-based singer-songwriter Paul Hogeterp. In 2014 he released his self-titled debut.  Recorded by Dave King at a century barn on the outskirts of Hamilton, the album came together with the help of musical family and friends as well as seasoned luminaries Pat Sansone (Wilco) and Bill Dillon (Joni Mitchell, Peter Gabriel). One blogger suggested Low Country Hill “evokes comparisons to such stalwarts as Hey Rosetta and Bon Iver, but yet really doesn’t sound particularly like either. The tracks stand on their own as testaments to superlative songwriting and an album produced to showcase haunting, beautiful music (Floor Shime Zipper Boots).”

Touring has taken Paul down logging roads in northern Ontario and through traffic jams on the Lionsgate Bridge in Vancouver - all for the joy of sharing the songs in intimate venues with music lovers. After nearly two years of performing, Hogeterp burrowed in his basement studio for the last half of 2016 to write for his next record. The result of that effort is Guesthouse, a five-song EP recorded in May-July of this year.  Dave King returns as producer and drummer while musical wizard Paul Linklater (Bidini Band, Colleen and Paul) plays bass and electric guitar for the project. Hogeterp feels blessed to have the gentle-giant footprints of these creative, kindred spirits in his new work.

Emma Elena Grace Live at Mulberry


Twenty-three year-old Waterdown native, Emma Elena Grace, is a singer-songwriter worthy of all ears. Her voice is distinctly captivating, while her songs have an uncanny ability to resonate within you on the first listen, and then stay awhile. Growing up listening to predominantly traditional country music at home, she internalized the art of storytelling through song, which she has carried with her to her own writing. Still, categorizing Emma Elena Grace is a hard thing to do. She possesses a style of her own, untethered and wide-ranging, while managing to stay grounded in her roots. With grace, she refuses to be pigeonholed. Emma Elena Grace released her debut album, This Side of the Room in August, 2015. She is currently working on her second studio album. Emma also won Best Singer/Songwriter at the 2016 Toronto Independent Music Awards.

Pat Maloney Live at Mulberry


A true red and white travelling songwriter, Pat Maloney has performed a thousand times in the last few years all over Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. He's a casual strummer who sings in a rich baritone, stomping away and whistling like no other. Three full length albums deep, Pat's catalogue is diverse in character & feel. A committed genre hopper, his music is inclusive and free of pretension. The one thing his songs have in common is that they all tell stories. Real stories, with real heart and a healthy sense of humour. His favourite bartender once said his voice makes her want to sip a nice bourbon and fall in love. He told her he would add that to his next bio. www.patmaloney.ca
