Endorsed by Curators:
Main Act: Tom Jackson (AB)
Celebrated actor, recording artist, musician, author, activist and philanthropist, Tom Jackson is extraordinarily passionate about creating change. A bass-baritone voice for food banks, the disenfranchised, the traumatized, and now an Ambassador for the Canadian Red Cross, he is Canada's go-to 'minstrel with a mission' and renaissance man. An Officer of the Order of Canada, JUNO and Gemini Humanitarian Award winner, ten-time honorary degree recipient, and proud bearer of the 2014 Governor General's Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Achievement, he marches into boardrooms to mobilize action and into shelters to dispense hugs. All this in addition to his wildly successful Huron Carole charity concerts. He is, quite simply, one of Canada's most influential, distinguished and revered native sons.
First Up: Ray Cooper (SW)
Of Scottish and English ancestry but based in Sweden since 2000, Ray Cooper is perhaps better known to Canadian audiences as Chopper from Oysterband, the project he was with for 19 albums and countless tours before he went solo in 2013. An acoustic singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist (cello, mandolin, guitar and piano), Ray finds inspiration in everything from traditional tunes to rock 'n roll.
