Oakville Centre presents Great Lake Swimmers

Juno nominated Great Lake Swimmers bring their timeless melodies and acute respect for the folk tradition to the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts on Friday, February 27, 2015 at 8 p.m..
Tony Dekker has spent the last decade entrancing listeners with his unforgettable voice and compelling songwriting. Great Lake Swimmers have long been a word-of-mouth favourite in their home country of Canada for whom critical mass was inevitable. They’ve been regarded as a national treasure by the CBC, with Lost Channels (2009) topping the charts at CBC Radio 3 and on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Chart. In the U.S., Lost Channels debuted at #10 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and was a favourite among influential bloggers and NPR staff.

The band has received public endorsements by the likes of Feist, Robert Plant, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams and cyclist Lance Armstrong. The latter two have both raved about the band on their personal websites; the former have handpicked the band to open shows and whole tours. Josh Groban has been known to open his show with a Great Lake Swimmers cover, and the band has shared the stage with such varied artists as Calexico, Sarah Harmer, Bela Fleck & The Sparrow Quartet, Hayden, Sloan, Goldfrapp, and Bill Callahan of Smog.

“It’s as outreaching as we’ve heard yet from GLS, and an indication that the sky is still Dekker’s limit…” — The Globe & Mail
