Northern Irish songwriter Ciaran Lavery may wield an acoustic guitar and write achingly beautiful universal truths, but Ciaran Lavery doesn't conform to the sensitive singer songwriter archetype. in 2014 Lavery's Kosher EP and Not Nearly Dark album went global with the tracks "Shame" and "Left For America" leading the charge, racking up more than 40 million listeners on the Spotify streaming service and inspiring a raft of renditions from other countries.

"Lavery's songwriting is nothing short of remarkable" - Hot Press

Already being lauded as one of the top Irish albums released in 2016 by The Irish Times, This is Ciaran's first Canadian show and not to be missed.

Pay What You Can – All proceeds go to Sunnybrook Foundation

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1749956111949044/

Following the announcement of Gord Downie’s terminal condition and the rollout of a final The Tragically Hip tour, tickets were virtually impossible to get. As such, the CBC has announced that the final Tragically Hip show will be broadcast and streamed live on CBC – so Silence, Wellington Brewery and Pommies Cider Co. are teaming up to screen it with all proceeds going to the Foundation at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (the hospital charity in which Gord Downie is receiving his treatment).

All money from beer sales, all door money and all donations are going to Sunnybrook foundation.

So come hang out, have some great beers and let’s watch the show together, all for a good cause.

Sunnybrook Foundation (CBN: 899209118 RR 0001) exists to support the advancement of their world-class health sciences centre, through active fundraising in support of research, education and equipment initiatives at Sunnybrook. To donate please head at donate.sunnybrook.ca
