(Tickets available only through the Broadway Theatre) Donovan Woods’ work is guided by a mantra that only sounds simple: Good songs win. Woods, a JUNO Award and Polaris Prize nominee, was raised in the small city of Sarnia, Ontario, to the sounds of country music, with a healthy dose of folk and pop, a combination that instilled in him a strong belief in the power of a good melody, the importance of everyday language and the potential of a carefully-crafted song. While amassing a catalogue of rousing and acclaimed music of his own, he has worked with some of the top songwriters in North America to craft cuts for performers ranging from Alan Doyle to Billy Currington. Joey Landreth, of the Bros. Landreth, plays the opening set. Presented by the Broadway Theatre. Sponsored by CFCR.
