FEBRUARY Songwriters: Sylvia Tyson, Russel deCarle, Don Amero, Samantha Martin and host Andrea England.
Four Chords and the Truth, the Dakota Confessions are series of songwriter showcases held quarterly in Toronto at the Dakota Tavern, featuring a blend of top notch songwriters and songs in an intimate environment.
Each show is hosted by award-winning songwriter Andrea England (or a special guest host, on occasion) and features several nationally and/or internationally acclaimed songwriters and maybe a surprise guest or two.
The songs are performed “in the round,” a style made famous by Nashville’s Bluebird Café, in which all four songwriters share the stage at once, each introducing and performing one song acoustically per round for a series of 3 rounds.
The show is presented by Jack Daniel’s and supports the Unison Benevolent Fund.
Advance tickets required (occasionally, a few door tickets are released day-of).
