KEN PRUE PRESENTS
KEN TIZZARD
NO DARK, NO LIGHT

MAY 28 • 7:30pm

Very few Canadian musicians have had as fascinating and diverse a career as Ken Tizzard. In over two decades as a professional musician, he has gone from plying his trade as the charismatic bassist in top Canadian rock bands The Watchmen and Thornley (he is featured on six gold and platinum records received numerous Juno nominations and MuchMusic Awards, and licensed songs to such TV shows as CSI and Fashion Television) to then emerging as an eloquent roots-based singer/songwriter and guitarist with a prolific solo career.

Wearing his rock 'n roll hat, Ken has toured internationally, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and played major venues across North America. He still goes out with The Watchmen a few times a year. When he puts on his cowboy hat, Tizzard can be spotted performing his original material, solo or with a band, for a loyal and ever growing audience in pubs, clubs and concert halls across Canada.

There is a soul-baring honesty to the material on No Dark No Light, the album Tizzard launched at The Loft in a sold-out show here The majority of the songs are focused upon his own emotions and experiences or those of close friends, but, in true folk music tradition, he also creates characters and stories. He takes those songs just as seriously, striving to imbue them with real authenticity. "I see those songs as research pieces," says Ken. "Rather like a method actor working on a role, I really immerse myself in those themes, searching to find the real story."

When Ken Tizzard plays at The Loft in May 28, he'll be accompanied by Luke Mercier (fiddle, banjo, mandolin), Ken Grant (bass), Steve Dagg (drums), and Ken Kelly (guitar). They'll play material from No Dark, No Light but will also preview new material from a new album coming out this summer.

Tickets are $25 + $2.50 service fee. Call 905 372-2210 or 1-855-372-2210 for tickets.
Performance is at The Loft, Cobourg
