A half-hour drive from Cornwall, in the sleepy village of Morrisburg, some of the finest acoustic guitar music in the country is being performed at a place called the St. Lawrence Acoustic stage. What began as a loose collective of acoustic musicians has now congealed into an organization that hosts concerts from the premier acoustic guitar solo artists and singer songwriters in the country. They also host workshops addressing a variety of aspects related to the art of acoustic guitar performance.

For anyone who loves the soothing sounds of acoustic guitar music and for those who are players themselves, the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage is a must-see when visiting the Cornwall, ON area. Don’t miss these upcoming concerts:

Maneli Jamal with Amy Campbell – January 25
Belarusian by birth, Iranian by heritage and American by unpbringing, Maneli Jamal has a diverse array of experiences to draw from when creating his complex, nuanced acoustic guitar music. He now calls Toronto home and boasts an impressive track record including being the winner of the 2010 Taylor Guitars Showdown. He is joined for this concert by the angelic-voiced singer-songwriter Amy Campbell.

Old Man Luedecke with Jordie Lane – February 15
Don’t let his name fool you: Old Man Luedcke is far from old. But his songs have a certain wisdom that makes it seem as though he has been through it all. Expertly crafted lyrics, engaging storytelling and pleasing melodies put his music in league with legendary folk sings many years his senior. Opening for him is Australian singer-songwriter Jordie Lane, who has been called “Australia’s brightest new roots music star”.  

Tickets for all performances are available through the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage website. When visiting Cornwall and the United Counties area, look no further than the Ramada Cornwall Hotel to provide superior accommodations at exceptional value

You may know her as one of the hilariously snarky panelists on MuchMusic’s Video on Trial series. Perhaps you’ve also heard her putting her biting wit to work on CBC radio’s The Debaters. You may have even seen her as a feature panelist on the Comedy Network’s new show Match Game. Whatever the case, there’s no denying that Debra DiGiovanni is one of Canada’s most talented comedians working today, and certainly one of the most prolific female comedic performers in our country’s history.

This January, DiGiovanni will hit the road for her first ever cross-Canada stand-up comedy tour. It’s called “The Late Bloomer Tour”, which speaks to her wave of recent success and wide exposure, the long-awaited rewards of more than a decade in the industry.

Although she’s best known for her TV appearances, it’s not a stretch to call DiGiovanni a seasoned stand-up comedy professional. She has two Comedy Now! specials under her belt, was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and recently aired her first American stand-up special, Single Awkward Female on Showtime. She’s no stranger to accolades, either, having won the Canadian Comedy Award for Best Female Comic three times!

Her upcoming tour includes 21 cities, which span from Victoria to St. John’s. One of her stops is right here in Cornwall, January 16th at the Aultsville Theatre.

Tickets are $42.35 plus service charges, available for purchase online, at the Cornwell Civic Complex Box Office or one hour before show time at the Aultsville Theatre Box office.

The Aultsville Theatre is located less than a 10-minute drive from our Ramada Cornwall hotel, making this an ideal event for our comedy-loving guests. If you live locally, why not complete your evening at the theatre with a relaxing and worry-free stay in one of our Luxury Suites with in-room whirlpool and fireplace. In the morning, we’ll treat you to a deluxe complimentary breakfast!

Join characters Max & Ruby from the award-winning book series as they carry on the timeless tradition of the Nutcracker on November 27 at Cornwall’s Aultsville Theatre. It’s being called “their most magical performance yet”! Set to one of the most memorable musical scores in history, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker gets a refreshing new treatment by these loveable bunnies.

The story begins on Christmas Eve. Ruby is decorating the tree and Max is indulging in Grandma's famous gingerbread cookies when a knock come at the door. It’s a big parcel from Great Uncle Drosselmeyer. Ruby and max are delighted to find a collection of nutcracker dolls inside.   

As grandma tells them the story of the Nutcracker, they are swept away to a fantasy land, imagining what it would be like to become characters in the famous Nutcracker ballet. Dancing and singing ensues as the Max and Ruby delight in every detail of the classic Nutcracker story.

Accompanied by the beautiful themes of Tchaikovsky's magnum opus, Max & Ruby’s Nutcracker Suite is an unforgettable holiday experience for the whole family.

The Max & Ruby Nutcracker Suite’s producers, Koba Entertainment are known for their acclaimed theatrical productions which also include The Backyardigans: Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens and Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon.

The 90-minute show is choreographed by Patti Caplette, whose career includes over 100 ballet performances of the Nutcracker. You’ll also see costumes by designer Anne Armit and beautiful sets by Gemini award winner Brian Purchaluk.

The Max & Ruby books by Rosemary Wells, and have sold over 3 million copies worldwide and spawned a children’s television show which has been an international hit.

Tickets for the performance are $32.50 available at the Cornwall Civic Complex Box Office or online.

The Aultsville Theatre is located just a 6-minute drive from the Ramada Cornwall Hotel, making this a perfect family event for anyone staying with us this week.
