The Anchorage, 186 Ricardo St. - Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON - 905-468-2141

Every Saturday night - 9:30ish - no cover

This week's featured guest: SAT., MARCH 15 - MARK RUTHERFORD

Penner's old buddy, Mark Rutherford began his music career during the fertile 60s music
scene in Winnipeg, gaining experience as a composer and bandleader through the 70s . This culminated in a move to Toronto in 1976 as DIANNE HEATHERINGTON's Musical Director.

For the next 15 years, he toured with DINAH CHRISTIE, BUFFY STE. MARIE, LOUISE PITRE, and numerous Toronto-based bands, playing concerts, stage shows and other gigs across Canada as well as in Detroit, New York, Los Angeles, Europe and the Middle East.

Though Mark is comfortable in a variety of musical styles, his first love is jazz and blues. Besides Mark's newest role as a performing member of the GROOVE PROJECT, he has also been leading the MARK RUTHERFORD QUARTET and focusing on developing his award-winning compositions. It was a treat to have Mark join us last time and we're looking forward to playing some tunes with him again on Saturday.
