Music. Theatre. Art. Comedy. This winter’s lineup in Hamilton Halton Brant is truly top notch.
From February through April, the region truly sings with talent. Big names like Green Day and Maroon 5 partly fill the bill, but the independents are well represented too with The Arkells and Whitehorse. From classic rock (A to Z of Rock) to jazz (Heather Bambrick) and Canadian favourites (Blue Rodeo) to award winning country stars (Terri Clark and the Dixie Chicks). There is something for every kind of music fan.
Music lovers will appreciate the wide realm of talent that is coming to town. The variety of sound textures of The Tea Party, the Purity of tone from the famed Vienna Boys Choir and the talent of Grammy nominated singer/song writer Lisa Loeb make this winter’s line up one you won’t want to miss.
This winter, why not discover some of the intimate venues for the visual arts in our region like the Glenhyrst Art Gallery featuring the Amanda McCavour and Aidan Urquhart Exhibit and Oakville Galleries to see the Etel Adnan and Sea and Fog Exhibit? You can also get up close to art at the Dundas School of Art, which hosts ongoing artist talks such as ceramic artist Reid Flock, coming up soon.
Keep the kids entertained this winter and over March Break with their favourite movie and television characters both on stage and on ice with Disney's Passport to Adventure. Catch the Bubble Guppies live in March and Peppa Pig in April.
You won’t want to miss the Harlem Globetrotters bringing their ageless entertainment to Hamilton in April, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with Irish import Rhythm of the Dance in Brantford and Burlington.
We can all use a smile when the winter gets dreary. Laughs can be found all over the region in February, March and April. The Burlington Comedy Festival starts February 5th at various locations throughout the city. Milton host to stand-up comedian Shaun Majumder later this month and the Just for Laughs Road Show in April.
One laugh you won’t want to miss out on features television sitcom Corner Gas star and creator Brent Butt at the Sanderson Centre in March. Even Shakespearean comedy is coming to town with The Comedy of Errors, a masterpiece fit for the whole family
