About Ontario Festival of Small Halls: Julian Taylor at the MAC
The Tweed & Area Arts Council are thrilled to once again be hosting the Ontario Festival of Small Halls at the Marble Arts Centre! This year’s artist is Julian Taylor, a Toronto-based, award-winning singer-songwriter, radio host, and label owner. Over the course of his esteemed career, which spans 20-plus years as the leader of Staggered Crossing, Julian Taylor Band, and his solo work, Julian has established himself as one of Canada’s greatest troubadours. His 2020 LP, The Ridge, earned two Juno Award nominations, along with a pair of Canadian Folk Music Awards for Solo Artist and English Songwriter of the Year, five Native American Music Award nominations, plus a nomination for Canada’s most prestigious music accolade, the Polaris Music Prize.
Julian's new album, Beyond the Reservoir, released October 14, 2022 includes the singles “Seeds” , “Wide Awake” and “Opening the Sky” that build on the soul-folk sound and autobiographical themes first explored on The Ridge. Julian received a 2023 Juno nomination for Contemporary Indigenous Artist or Group of the Year and most recently he has been nominated by CMA Ontario for Roots Artist of the Year.
His unique blend of blues, roots, and folk music has earned him a growing fanbase and critical acclaim for both his music and live performances. Learn more about Julian Taylor at juliantaylormusic.ca .
