2015 - past house concerts
Trevor Alguire - Friday November 13, 2015
“Alguire sings in a smooth, unprepossessing, slightly vulnerable baritone that’s both expressive and soothing. On the instrumental side, the performances are impeccable.” -Blog Critics
“Alguire has found just the right voice for his tales of world weary travelers and lonely wanderers. A sure-handed country rock album in the vein of Steve Earle and Tom Petty…” – Andrew Carver – The Ottawa Sun
Pat's place is in the west end of Ottawa, between Westboro and Woodroffe Avenue. When you make your reservation using our secure Paypal button, you will be sent the exact direction to the concert.

John Carroll is a singer, songwriter, performer and recording artist who has explored music as his mode of expression for over 25 years. John and his band, The Epic Proportions, released their new album, 'EVERYBODY SMOKES IN HELL,' January 2012 to a sold out show at The Black Sheep Inn. This album has received attention from campus radios across the country, charting in the Top TEN on EarShot's Folk/Roots charts. Canada's Folk, Roots and World Music magazine PENGUIN EGGS stated: "If Hades had a telephone line to Earth, a call from down there would sound like John Carroll’s voice on Everybody Smokes In Hell."
A new album is in the works.
"Kim Beggs’s voice lures you in with its emotive melancholy before you’ve had time to absorb the fact that she’s a formidable songwriter."

Kim Beggs with David Gavan Baxter
Thursday, March 26 7:00 pm. Arrive between 6:30 and 6:50pm.
Kim Beggs did not expect to lay down geographical roots that she could ‘come home to’, when she picked up and moved to the Yukon twenty-two years ago, but that’ what happened and she hasn’t looked back since.
The Yukon isn’t felt so much as place or geography in her songs; it’s experienced instead as an approach to living the kind of independent life that her music embodies. Located so far from urban centres, people in the North have to become adept at doing things by themselves or they won’t last very long. Kim’s music is like that.
Kim was accompanied by David Gavan Baxter on guitar and vocals.
Friday Feb 27, 7:30pm. Arrive between 7pm and 7:20pm.
Following family singsongs and classical and jazz piano training, Megan Jerome has honed a soulful and eclectic, free-spirited style of singing, playing piano, arranging and songwriting imbued with sensitivity and beauty. Her songs are raw, fragile, bold, intimate, sparse, and full of light!
Megan has self-produced four albums delighting critics, audiences, and topping CBC and community radio station charts nationwide.
Described by poet David O’Meara as “not only one of our most interesting artists, also one of our most interested artists” Megan is inspired by Marc Chagall paintings, time spent in Paris and New Orleans, rip-roaring chic-lit, eclectic decorating books, field recordings, and grooves and bass lines that make her move!
Megan put on a great show! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.
