Our Dinner At The Carleton series is pleased to welcome London, ON’s John Muirhead to our stage on Tuesday, June 25th. The Canadian Folk Awards 2017 nominee will play at 6 PM and admission, as always for this series, is FREE.
With stories and songs that kindle late-night Canadian campfires, John Muirhead’s heartfelt indie-folk sound will move you in more ways than one. From fingerpicked folk confessionals to upbeat roots-rock jams, John’s eclectic song collection reflects the highs and lows of love, ambition, and being a young travelling musician. While he is based in London and Halton Hills ON, John is a a troubadour by nature and has played in living rooms, theatres, moving trains, and folk festival stages across Canada.
With influences including Joel Plaskett, Frank Turner, The Weakerthans, and Julien Baker, John’s primary goal is to change the lives of listeners the way music has changed his. In the two years since the release of his debut EP Yesterday’s Smile, John has been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, given an honourable mention in the Canadian Songwriting Competition, graced the stages of legendary festivals including The Winnipeg Folk Festival and Home County Music and Arts Festival, and released a follow-up EP, Foundational.
