Hugh's Room is proud to present a celebration of our friend, Wendell Ferguson, on his
Wendell’s been with Hugh’s Room from the start 11 years ago. He’s performed here many times in manycombinations and even filmed his Christmas special here. To honour his achievement, we've asked Wendell to assemble some of the acts he regularly plays with and put together a night of great music, but rather than make it all about him, he’s decided to make this a charity show.
Proceeds from the show are graciously being donated to the Unison Benevolent Fund. The Unison Fund is a non-profit organization that provides counseling, emergency relief and benefit programs for those in the Canadian music community who face personal or professional challenges due to hardship, illness, unemployment or economic difficulties.
Come and join Wendell Ferguson along with guest artists:
-John Sheard & Dennis Pendrith (from the Vinyl Cafe Orchestra)
-Lou Moore, (with Johnny Dymond & Al Cross)
-Suzie Vinnick (10X Maple Blues Winner, 3X JUNO Nominee)
-Katherine Wheatley (one half of Wendell & Wheat and a wonderful singer/songwriter)
-Betty and the Bobs (super group made up of Dave Matheson (of Moxy Fruvous and Ron Sexsmith), David Woodhead (Stan Rogers, James Keelaghan, Perth County Conspiracy), Soozi Schlanger (Swamperella and SOOZIMUSIC) Rich Greenspoon (Njacko Backo, Oliver Schroer)
-Several surprise guests
