Before we were so rudely interrupted by a global pandemic, our dear, dear (albeit completely whacked) friend, Steve Poltz, was scheduled to play during our anniversary month in May. That didn’t happen. However, we’re absolutely thrilled that the universe’s bard will return to perform a third show – this one a matinée – at The Carleton on Saturday, November 13th at 2 PM. Tickets are $35 + HST. Get ’em while you can!

In 20 years since his full-length solo debut, One Left Shoe, Steve Poltz blessed the world’s ears with thirteen solo records, spanning the acclaimed 2010 Dreamhouse and most recently, Shine On in 2019. NPR summed it up best, “Critics and fans alike now regard Poltz as a talented and prolific songwriter.”
Evoking themes of “hope, love, contemplation, celebration of Wednesday, pharmacists, and the fact that windows are not inanimate objects and they sometimes have conversations with each other,” Shine On represents Steve at his most inspired and insightful. The opener and title track pairs a delicate vocal with lithely plucked acoustic strings as he urges everyone to, “Shine on, shine on.”
