Del Barber + Alicia Toner

Event Details

  • June 3, 2019
    8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

One of our favourite songwriters, Manitoba’s Del Barber, returns to The Carleton for a show with PEI’s Alicia Toner on Monday, June 3rd. Show time is 8 PM and tickets are $12.50 advanced or $15 at the door.

Del Barber is a singer-songwriter from Manitoba, whose winsome balladry and wry wit harken back to country-folk traditions that remind the listener of the late greats of songwriting history. Del Barber is no stranger to finding inspiration in the cultural backdrop of Canada. On the JUNO Award-nominated Prairieography, Barber documented stories of prairie life, highlighting the unique relationship between struggle, hard work and love.

With new songs to share, Del is back on the road reconnecting with fans across North America anticipating the launch of his new album ‘Easy Keeper‘ in 2019.

A child of the East Coast, Alicia Toner writes songs that tell the truth. Her Americana blend of folk, pop and country-rock offers a unique melody-driven sound built around her eloquently emotive voice.

Her debut album, I Learned The Hard Way, made waves with its earnest, heartfelt songwriting and earned her Music PEI’s SOCAN Songwriter of the Year Award as well as numerous other nominations and critical acclaim.

I Learned The Hard Way – produced by Tim Chaisson (The East Pointers) and Stuart Cameron (The Heartbroken) – is a pretty apt description of the tone of the album and the sorts of material Toner deals with, especially in her self-penned compositions. While it is not a break-up album, it is an album about relationships – the good, the bad and the ugly.
