60 FOCUS - NOVEMBER 2018 Ultimate Artists Live THE LED ZEPPELIN SHOW FEATURING ZED Saturday November 10 at 8 p.m. Led Zeppelin was an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The band’s heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition as one of the progenitors of heavy metal, though their unique style drew from a wide variety of influences, including folk music. The musicians in ZED provide the closest tribute to Led Zeppelin with their attention to detail. Location Town Hall 1873 302 Queen St., Port Perry Tickets $39 all ages Information 905-985-8181 www.townhall1873.ca _______________________________________________ Greenbank Folk Music Society SARAH JANE SCOUTEN & BAND Saturday November 10 at 8 p.m. With flavours of Lucinda Williams, Nanci Griffiths and Iris Dement and a wealth of early country music, the three- time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee and Western Canadian Music Award nominee’s songs are faithful to a long-standing folk music tradition. Often spilling over into modern themes that are outspoken and edgy, her songwriting tackles issues from poverty and midwifery to tongue-in-cheek heartache songs and unabashed Canadiana. A traditionalist at heart, Sarah Jane Scouten shows her signature flair for the roots of roots music. With respect for these roots, she writes from her own perspective, playing with style to create her own distinct voice. This songwriter is known for hitting hard and close to home, then laughing it off. Greenbank folk fans will appreciate the haunting arrangements and big lush sound of this exciting group.
