Music at the Market
With Americana heart and East Coast soul, Shipyard Kitchen Party blends strong storytelling, traditional instrumentation, catchy pop hooks and sly humour for a fresh take on the folk music genre. They’re Gordon Lightfoot having a dram too many with Great Big Sea and Stan Rogers crossed with “Who’s Line it Anyway.” They’ll make you stomp your feet, laugh and maybe even shed a tear. And above all, they WILL have fun with you.
In their “Song about You" segments, Shipyard Kitchen Party engages directly with the audience to create improvised songs on the spot; a high-wire act of musicianship and comedy that attendees frequently describe as a highlight of the show.
Although they are united as long time Collingwood residents, Sacha Law was born in Dundee, Scotland, Jason Murphy is from St. John’s, Newfoundland and John Eaton is from Scarborough, Ontario. Each of them brings a variety of musical influences and backgrounds to the “party”!
Shipyard Kitchen Party was a showcase performer at the 2019 Ontario Contact Festival and winners of the Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts Robert G. Kemp Award. Their first studio album, “Tom Thomson’s Wake”, will be released this Summer.
This fall, Shipyard Kitchen Party is remounting tours of their original "folk musicals", “Tom Thomson’s Wake” and “100 Years from Now”. These mixes of concept album and live theatre, re-interpret a slice of Canadiana through linked original songs, dramatic readings, photography and art. Owen Sound dates coming soon!
