On Friday March 14, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. the Port Stanley Festival Theatre will be stomping with the East Coast styling of J.P. Cormier.

Singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, recording artist, teacher, collaborator, innovator and award winner; no matter what you call him, J.P. Cormier's talent is comparable to none. Among the many honors this shy guy with the big heart has been awarded are 12 East Coast Music Awards, a 1998 JUNO nomination and the 2005 Canadian Folk Music Award for Instrumental Album of the Year.

As a performer, Cormier is known for his flawless delivery of original story songs, most often basing his lyrics on true events. Inspiration comes when he least expects it and, in his words, "I just hold the pen." Cormier's life is one of triumph as he was nearly paralyzed in 2009 when he fell asleep at the wheel and crashed his truck. His songs give the audience insight into his life, loves, losses and more.

Born in London, Ontario, Cormier then moved to Nova Scotia as a child and by the age of 15 was on to the United States to see what life had in store. By the age of 19 he was touring with the legendary Stompin' Tom Connors himself. Throughout 2014 Cormier will be touring a little lighter as he takes his tour solo with the exception of his fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin and his four legged-friend, a terrier-border collie named Jack.

Join us at Port Stanley Festival Theatre on Friday March 14th, 2014 at 8:00 p.m. for a remarkable performance by J.P. Cormier, featuring songs from his latest album Somewhere In The Back of My Heart. Tickets are $28 plus tax/handling and can be purchased through the box office 519-782-4353 or online www.portstanleytheatre.ca
