The Kit and Marcus Show – North Ontario Tour – February 16th-28th 2010
Two independent musicians, 13 days of traveling, 13 great venues, 10 cities and a whole lot of original acoustic folk/rock music – “The Kit and Marcus Show” is official and kicks off in Orillia, Ontario at The Broken Road on Tuesday, February 16th, 2010 at 8:00PM. From there the two seasoned singer songwriters embark on a journey to Thunder Bay and back stopping along the way to share their music and promote their passion. The thirteen day, eleven city tour wraps up at St Louis Bar and Grill in Ajax, Ontario on Sunday, February 28th, 2010. Although Kit Cairns has more of an edgy folk sound and Marcus White produces more of a rock output, they certainly are no strangers to each other. From being in a band together, to recording songs together, to a special musical energy that flows between them, their journey together is actually one of great length. Solo album releases, radio airplay, a busy Toronto gig schedule, studio sessions, parenthood, life lessons, and an exciting vibe provide these two musicians with a history to write about and talent to get it heard. Come on out to one of their shows to hear Kit Cairns sing truth about the environment, society and his family while Marcus White provides some love with his soulful ballads reflecting life’s hardships and handshakes.
The “Kit and Marcus Show” will consist of each artist performing a distinctly unique and entertaining one hour intimate set. Kit will be performing songs from his two solo releases “This Is Me” and “My World” as well as showcasing some exciting new material destined for his 2010 album release. Marcus will be performing songs from his “From the Soul” solo release as well as promoting his much anticipated new album “Another Suburban Morning.” The last half hour of the show includes an acoustic duo where both artists come together to play a few covers and some historic songs off of their 2004 combined release titled “No Holds Barred.” Merchandise will be available for purchase as well as one free cd given away at each venue. Come on out to enjoy some great food, listen to some awesome original music with meaning, RELAX, and HAVE SOME FUN!!
