Astrid Young is a Canadian singer/songwriter. Astrid grew up in Toronto with her father, Scott Young and her mother, Astrid Carlson Mead who endeavored to educate her musically as early as possible. She could read music probably before she could read words. After her half-brother and fellow musician Neil Young, bought Astrid her first amp in the 1970s, she began to explore her own musical talents. Since then she has shared stages and studios with a mind-blowing roster of musical egends, wrote a bestselling book (Being Young, Insomniac Press), made a short film, and played or sang on a ton of records.

Don't miss this exceptional band all the way from Chicago featuring the legendary Johnny Iguana on keys & Michael Caskey on drums, as well as their bewitching singer/dancer Yana Atim! This is the Claudettes first Canadian tour and we are so honored to have managed to book them on their way back to Chicago after two dates with the Ottawa Blues Fest and a night at the Mont Tremblant Bluefest in Quebec! This is your chance to see this incredible band in a very small venue with amazing acoustics. It will be a night to remember! A bonus is that this show is on a Monday evening so many of the local musicians will likely be able to make it out as there are not many local gigs on a Monday night.

Ila Vann is the kind of performer you never forget, bubbling with energy and full of life, she has been performing since her mother brought her on tour with gospel legend Mahalia Jackson. Born in New Jersey, USA, Ila started her singing career as a child.

Note: If you came out to see Ila Vann and the Fade Kings in the past you do not want to miss the Kim Pollard Band as they are somewhat similar and they are also a band that will make you want to get out of your seat and dance! See the videos below for an example of what to expect.

Also we have an amazing support act for this show! None other then Lotus Wight (of Sheesham & Lotus). Lotus Wight is an exceptional singer/songwriter and musician that plays old time music. When you see Lotus Wight perform you will swear you have gone back in time! Really great stuff! See the bottom of this page for more info on Lotus Wight.

The Kim Pollard Band is an exceptional Blues/Soul act that were one of only 7 Canadian bands to complete in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennesee! Kim Pollard Band returns to Active Arts Studio for the second time, and it will be a show not to be missed! (The first show was during a massive snow storm, and so a lot of people couldn't make it, so this time we look forward to great weather with no snow!!)
