Event

Jon Brooks
Making a very welcomed return visit to LRFC, we guarantee you a memorable evening of music performed live right before your eyes with the immensely talented highly contemporary, but with a knowing nod to the tradition, Canadian artist Jon Brooks whose global travels to Russia, Eastern Europe and the cratered remains of Bosnia-Herzegovina have provided him with a catalog of first-hand experiences that populate his songs with the dual nature of Mankind's apparently equal capacity for profound kindness or unimaginable cruelty.  It was during this time Jon discovered what kind of song he wanted to write. In 2006 he began singing that song. In 2014 Borealis Records released his 5th album, The Smiling and Beautiful Countryside. Jon is Kerrville New Folk Winner and a three-time Songwriter of the Year nominee at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. The Smiling and Beautiful Countryside crashes the folk/roots party in late 2014 with a death count of 75. Its an album of rural Canadian murder ballads and was recorded in Toronto by well-awarded and oft-acclaimed producer/engineer, David Travers-Smith. Jons 5th full length release is an intrepid solo set that defies categorization and resists any folk, singer-songwriter, or solo acoustic description. Equal parts local Canadiana and universal horror, this is a collection that has buried all the trademark Jon Brooks social commentary in a shallow, roadside grave. Philosophical paradox, gallows humour, impossible love, titillating gore, adulterous sex, serial killers, gun dealers, rampage killing, missing women, First Nations catastrophe, necrophilia, Shakespeare, and John Milton: The Smiling and Beautiful Countryside is neither an album for casual fans nor is it music that will ever be heard in your dentists waiting room. His songs will give you cause to ponder, to appreciate the fragility of Life, and the randomness of Fate in the day to day chaos and mayhem of Life in the 21st century...
