PIGS: Canada’s Pink Floyd
Formed in 2008 in Victoria, British Columbia, PIGS have spent nine years perfecting their craft in front of sold-out audiences throughout western Canada. On their 2017 tour, PIGS are bringing an epic and rare treat for Pink Floyd fans. The band is crossing the country to perform selections from the entire Floyd catalogue, including a few special surprises from Floyd solo records. In addition to classics from legendary albums like Dark Side Of The Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals, and The Wall, the band will showcase material that has rarely—if ever—been performed live by Pink Floyd. The band and their lighting, sound, and visual designers are all Floyd aficionados and are coming together to create for you an incredible night filled with music, lasers, and the glow of a giant Mr Screen. PIGS is the most authentic Floyd act around, with the right people, equipment, and performances to give you an incredible musical experience you will never forget.

AN EVENING IN CONCERT WITH MURRAY MCLAUCHLAN
Murray McLauchlan is one of Canada’s most highly regarded singer/songwriters, and with good cause. Over a 40-year career, he has released 18 albums and been awarded 11 Junos. His songs Farmer’s Song, Down by the Henry Moore, Whispering Rain and Sweeping the Spotlight Away are now considered Canadian standards. Murray is also a painter, an author, an actor, a radio host; he’s been bestowed an Honourary Doctor of Laws and appointed to The Order of Canada. That’s quite a ride. Yet some may wonder where he’s been of late. Murray did tour in support of his 2012 critically acclaimed release Human Writes, but then decided to take a break. Other interests prevailed and he restricted his touring to shows with Lunch At Allen’s, the supergroup he co-founded, whose members also include Ian Thomas, Marc Jordan and Cindy Church.
But now Murray is on the road in his own right once more. Here’s what he has to say: “As a songwriter I know that it’s not enough to sit in your kitchen and write. Your songs need to be heard. Music is a communicative art and if it isn’t brought in front of people there is no way to tell if that end has been met. I like to think of a concert tour as a kind of roving gallery to test your art and your ideas. I try to do my very best to make it worthwhile for folks to be there and to perhaps look at things in a new way when they leave.”
And this, in a nutshell, is the Murray McLauchlan concert experience.
