Join us for an afternoon ‘East Coast Kitchen Party’ celebrating the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club! We are delighted to welcome members of Dartmouth-based Indie-Folk band, The Public Service, to Hamilton for an afternoon of feet tapping, swaying, and, a sea shanty (or two).
2023 has been a big year for The Public Service, and we’re not just talking about their birding goals. The band have brought their uplifting act to the main stages of The IIHF World Juniors, Full Circle Festival, and Stan Rogers Folk Festival, to name a few. Their debut album, Songs For The Living (2022), a collection of love letters disguised as folk songs for the people and places left behind, has reached no. 1 on multiple community radio stations across Canada.
Frontman George Woodhouse and frontwoman Joss MacNeil are equally thrilled to kick of their Southern Ontario tour with a fundraiser for the Hamilton Naturalists’ Club. George and Joss will be sharing the stage with local acts Glenn Barrett, Know’n, and Mums N’ Roses.
Glenn Barrett is a singer-songwriter whose debut album “Anew” was released in 2022 (produced, mixed and mastered by Stephen Pitkin of Elliott BROOD). A little bit folk, and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll Glenn’s songs combine thoughtful lyrics with simple guitar stylings. Know’n is a singer-songwriter rooted in punk rock writing and performing compelling, intricate, and melodic music for over a decade. Their first EP, “Fix Yourself First” was released in 2020. Mums N’ Roses are a cover band whose repertoire includes boogie-woogie hits, new wave classics, and rock anthems.
George, Joss, and friends are preparing a fun filled afternoon of musical collaboration. Come out to share a laugh, a story, and a song! Proceeds will support HNC’s ongoing stewardship work.
