Two award-winning songwriters to perform in Guelph

GUELPH – On July 6, Ambre McLean will be in concert at Silence Sounds.

The performance is her first Guelph appearance since a standing-room-only performance at the Guelph Heritage Museum in January of 2018, and, her first area date since leaving the area last fall.

“I’m excited to return to Guelph to play one of my favourite music venues,” McLean said.

“This will be my first time returning to play the town I spent 20 years calling home since I moved away from the area at the end of 2018 – so I’m looking forward to a fun evening of music with some familiar faces.”

Ambre McLean, winner of the 2010 Ontario Council of Folk Festival’s Songs from the Heart Award, is a Canadian-born singer/songwriter now based in Smiths Falls, Ontario.

McLean is known for her live performances, versatile and distinct singing voice, cross-genre songwriting style and use of live looping technology.

Joining McLean for the show will be Citadel House recording artist and multi-award winner from Newfoundland, Adam Baxter, as part of his first-ever Ontario tour.

“He is a powerhouse of energetic, explosive creativity with the aggressiveness of a rock n’ roller and the sensibilities of a folk musician,” organizers state.

“His music stretches across multiple genres to provide a compulsive mix of high energy and sweet longing.”

McLean and Baxter will be in concert on July 6 at 8pm at Silence Sounds, 46 Essex Street, Guelph.
