Our Roots Are Showing

Spring Concert Series at Grey Roots

Grey Roots Museum and Archives presents Our Roots Are Showing, a unique concert series featuring a variety of talented, creative artists from the local area. Familiar, long-standing performers mixed with exciting up-and-comers share their original takes on life in Grey-Bruce and the world beyond. All in the beautiful acoustic space of the intimate Grey Roots Theatre. 

Our Roots Are Showing, returning for its second year, features one performance a month on a Thursday evening from March to June 2024. Start time for all performances is 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Our Shotgun Wedding, originally scheduled to perform on May 16th, had to withdraw. We are thrilled to instead be joined by Drew McIvor on the same date and time. 

It's no secret,  Drew likes to jump into musical puddles and see what kind of splash they make.  And while he's out there playing in the rain, simple themes radiate: music is beautiful, it matters, and it connects us all in magical ways. 

Roots, world, and acoustic soul melt into a storybook of songs that simply put, feel good. Ever wondered if you should, and then you were glad you did? It's like that.

Kenzy and Olivia are young cousins from the Bruce Peninsula at the beginning of their musical careers. They began playing together when they were only 13 and 10 years old. Throughout the years they have mastered blending their harmonies. Their music can be described as alt rock or indie, commonly playing a good mix of covers and original music. They released two songs in 2021 called Home and What They Wanted and are very excited to announce that they are set to release a new single this coming May.

Opening for Kenzy & Olivia: Introducing Charlie Taylor-Gillespie, a 16-year-old singer-songwriter crafting emotional landscapes through heartfelt lyrics and melodies. As a winner of the Youth Discoveries competition, she performed at Summerfolk 48. Other notable performances include Sunset Sessions, Pride Festival in Owen Sound and the Summerfolk stage for Canada Day. Charlie's talent and authenticity shine, captivating diverse audiences. She hopes to leave a lasting impression on Canadian music.
