Performing over a thousand shows worldwide, Hawksley has headlined prestigious venues like Massey Hall and The Olympia in Paris and now makes his way to Morrisburg with his enviable catalogue of mischievous favourites, glammy stompers and heartfelt hymns to small town Canada. Opening this show will be Mikhail Laxton, whose debut collection Real serves as a powerful introduction to an artist poised to join the ranks of Canada’s great singer-songwriters. Drawing inspiration primarily from the power of love, Laxton delivers his message through his unforgettable voice and funky acoustic melodicism. Laxton relocated from his native Australia three years ago after establishing his reputation as a contestant on that country’s version of The Voice and now calls Ottawa home.
