Lynne Hanson  -  Sunday, June 16, 2024 @ 2PM

Suggested Donation:  $25 per person, RSVP:

Too tough for folk and too blues-influenced for country, Lynne Hanson’s brand of porch music with a little red dirt can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. Her hard living music has garnered her the nickname “Canada’s Queen of Americana.” And while her deep, bluesy croon has drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, it’s the poetry of her lyrics that really sets her apart. 
Winner of two Canadian Folk Music Awards, Hanson is known for her high energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions. She has an uncanny way of connecting with her audience with an authenticity that is as entertaining as it is disarming. 
Lynne returns to the RickksRoom stage to showcase  her new album being released in late May 2024, we are honoured to be on her new album release tour !

Leverage for Mountains  - Sunday, August 25, 2024 -  @  2PM

Suggested Donation - $25 per person, RSVP to

Leverage For Mountains is Nick Loyer, Jay Trépanier and Jay Flynn. Based in Gatineau, this independent  indie/folk trio is quickly gaining popularity with their rich acoustic sound and powerful vocal harmonies.  The band released their first E.P. in 2016, titled "The Essence Project", introducing their audience to their simplistic approach to giving springboard to the lyrics offered and the emotions induced in their songs. All of this is served with captivating melodies and meticulous vocal harmonies. The trio was awarded "Public’s Choice" at the Cabaret le Festif! (Charlevoix, QC) in 2017.  The trio launched their second record, Love Out of the Dark, at a sold-out show at Salle Jean Desprez in only a few hours. 
Come join us for an afternoon of live music, stories from the road and meet new friends who like you are all about supporting live music in our community.

A masterful fingerstyle guitarist with an unmistakable, soulful voice, Rob Lutes has steadily built a collection of exquisite songs that inhabit the intersection of folk, Americana, country, blues and the singer-songwriter genre. Originally from New Brunswick but based in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, his 8th album, Come Around, was released in April 2021 and received four 2022 Canadian Folk Music Award nominations for Album, English Songwriter, Contemporary Singer, and Producer of the Year (with Rob MacDonald) along with a Maple Blues Award nomination for Acoustic Act of the Year. He is a two-time CFMA Contemporary Singer of the Year. 

His longtime collaborator, Rob MacDonald is renowned as one of Quebec's finest guitarists and has recorded and performed with a who's who of Quebec roots artists, including Guy Belanger, Dawn Tyler Watson, among many others. After more than two decades playing together, Lutes and MacDonald have developed an ability to blend their two sounds into something unique and intense.

"A gem. Among the best in a crowded roots field." Toronto Star

‟Lutes is a fine roots/blues writer, one of those gems you find by chance as you're going through a town and he's going through a town and you just want a beer and he gives you the show of the year.” - Bob Mersereau,
