Canadian indie music legends Chris Brown, Ron Hawkins and Stephen Stanley are teaming up this fall for a run of shows that will find them on stage together for the first time, delving into their vast catalogues in new ways, and sharing stories of their adventures on the road. The trio plays Grand Theatre in Fergus on Oct. 6.

The tour marks a rare reunion of sorts of Lowest Of The Low co-founders Hawkins and Stanley, while Brown’s lengthy resume includes co-founding legendary Toronto soul outfit Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, and his acclaimed folk-rock collaboration with singer/songwriter Kate Fenner.

In a joint statement, the trio says, “These shows are going to give us an opportunity to get up close and personal with audiences, play some songs we might not normally play, and share some stories going back to our bands’ formative years in the early ‘90s, all the way up to the present moment.”

Indeed, any fan of classic CanRock should not miss these shows!

About Hugh Christopher Brown: Toronto-born singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Chris Brown has been making music with a purpose since the 1980s. Along with his own work, he has appeared both on stage and in the studio with artists ranging from The Tragically Hip to Barenaked Ladies. Currently based in Wolfe Island, Ontario, Brown operates the label Wolfe Island Records and its recording studio built in the former Wolfe Island post office.

About Ron Hawkins: Following Lowest Of The Low’s initial break-up in 1995, Ron Hawkins has carved out a solo career with backing first from the Rusty Nails, and later the Do Good Assassins. Since 2000, the Low has reunited sporadically, and continues to perform and record today with an all-new line-up, in tandem with Hawkins’ solo work.

About Stephen Stanley: Having also pursued a solo career following Lowest Of The Low’s 1995 break-up, Stephen Stanley has embraced different musical guises beginning with his 2003 debut solo album, That Thin Wild Mercury. Since 2017 he has fronted the Stephen Stanley Band, working closely with Chris Brown and signing to Wolfe Island Records. He has also branched into radio, hosting the show Northern Wish on The Bay 88.7 FM in Muskoka, Ontario.
