Hughs Room

Toronto, ON
History will be made on Sept. 30 when the Original Sloth Band reunites. Formed over 50 years ago, in the hot, sleepy delta land of southern North York, brothers Chris and Ken Whiteley and their friend, the late Tom Evans started what was originally a jug band called Tubby Fats Original All Star Downtown Syncopated Big Rock Jug Band. By 1973 they were known as the Original Sloth Band and at the forefront of independent recording, releasing their first album, “Whoopee After Midnight”. It was an incredibly eclectic mix of styles ranging through jug band to swing, fiddle tunes to doo wop, obscure songs from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, bluegrass and more. In 1975 the “Sloths” were back in the studio recording “Hustlin’ and Bustlin’”, adding string bass and drums and focusing more on early blues, jazz and jug band music. The early 1970’s also marked their emergence in the burgeoning folk festival scene. They went on to prominence at festivals across Canada and in the United States. Their third album was recorded and mixed by Daniel Lanois and featured contributions from the legendary Chicago blues pianist Blind John Davis. Titled for the year of it’s recording and release, “1978” demonstrated their growing musical sophistication while retaining their funky, old time roots. Also in 1978, they recorded with Leon Redbone on his album “Champagne Charlie” touring with him and appearing together on the famed television show “Saturday Night Live”. The following year Ken Whiteley recorded a gospel album, “Up Above My Head” which enlisted the support of his fellow Sloth Band members and also added the vocal harmonies of a trio of women calling themselves the Honolulu Heartbreakers. For the next two years they began doing shows as an 8 piece ensemble! After 1981, Chris and Ken both began pursuing other musical ventures. However they would still get the Original Sloth Band together for special engagements. The band gave it’s last performance at Hugh’s Room just a year and a half before Tom Evans’ untimely death in 2009. For this Hugh’s Room show, Chris (trumpet, harmonica, guitar, vocals) and Ken (guitar, mandolin, piano, accordion, washboard, jug, vocals), along with long time drummer Bucky Berger are putting together a very special night. The show will also feature Drew Jurecka on fiddle, clarinet and sax and Ben Whiteley on bass. They will pay tribute to their friend Tom Evans and take you on a musical journey that will be quite a ride.

Oct 15-16/16

The Brickworks, Evergreen Brick Works 550 Bayview Ave

Toronto, ON
The Woods are Burning: Though most strongly identified with Algonquin Park, the Canadian painter Tom Thomson lived and worked in Toronto's ravines. During the last years of his brief life, he spent part of the year in and around Algonquin Park and wintered in Toronto, painting and living in a shack behind Lawren Harris's studio building in the Rosedale ravine. 2017 marks the centenary of this great painter's death. In a compelling performance created especially for the outdoor setting of the Don Valley Ravine at Evergreen Brick Works, through original songs, Tom's letters, and the literature of his time, Thomson's life, passion and work will be celebrated by novelist (and Toronto's Poet Laureate) Anne Michaels and singer/songwriter David Sereda. They will be joined by stellar musicians Ken Whiteley, Tyler Wagler, Keira McArthur, and Sandra Swannell. The performance will begin outside before dusk and move inside as night comes on.
