"Raise The Roof" show

at Watson's Mill, 5525 Dickinson Street, Manotick.
Born into a musical family, Ottawa’s Pat Moore learned to sing around the kitchen table with her sisters. Her influences are wide and varied, her interpretative style and rich warm voice will take you on a musical journey. Her song writing ranges from storytelling to heart and soul wrenching country, as heard on her second album, "Take it to Heart", a collection of songs that pay homage to the sound, style and feel of country pop's golden age. An all round entertainer, with an engaging stage presence, Pat is also well known for her local productions such as the annual Ottawa Opry, and the annual Christmas GOOSE concerts.
Bringing to life the sounds of 1950's & 1960's country pop is Pat’s band The Vinyl Frontier, the "official house band" for Pat’s annual production of The Ottawa Opry. The band members are:
Al Bragg - a well known inductee of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame who toured with Carol Baker, The Family Brown, and several other bands. Al has earned several nominations as CCMA Steel Guitar Player of the year, and a Juno nomination. In the Vinyl Frontier, Al will take you back to the early days of country pop on the Pedal Steel Guitar, and his bass vocal - a playful dimension to the band's sound.
Pat McLaughlin and Al make quite the team! On acoustic and electric guitars, Pat McLaughlin is always delighting the audience with his inspiring backup and lead playing. His vocal harmony brings a warm full sound to the country duets, trios, and quartets.
Ann Downey is ⅓ of Finest Kind, the internationally acclaimed a capella folk trio. Ann’s superb bass playing and vocal harmonies brings a fun and full sound to the band. Ann also spent much of the summer on tour in the UK, Canada, and the U.S.
Alistair Dennett was the original drummer for Canada’s award winning country band Prairie Oyster. There’s no one more fun to watch than Alistair, as he holds the groove together. Alistair is also a well known celtic musician and bodhrán instructor.
“There is no greater joy than to hear an artist find their sound and then use it elegantly.
Pat Moore has done precisely that...”
