Canada has produced some of the world’s most enduring songwriters and Joel Plaskett is hailed as one of the best. With countless awards to his credit, thousands of tour dates, and numerous recording and producing projects under his belt, Plaskett remains one of the most innovative and prolific artists on the scene today.

The Park Avenue Sobriety Test is the multi-award winning artist’s ninth studio album and the follow up to 2012’s widely acclaimed Scrappy Happiness. While The Park Avenue Sobriety Test is a Plaskett album by name, the big group of friends helping out is the Emergency-Plus, featuring his long-time touring buddies, plus previous members of that group and Thrush Hermit, and even more friends and musical neighbours. Produced by Plaskett at his New Scotland Yard studio in Dartmouth, the album includes contributions from Dave Marsh, Chris Pennell, Tim Brennan, Ian McGettigan, JP Cormier, Mo Kenney and more.

With thousands of tour dates under his belt Plaskett will take to the road once again with a recently announced coast to coast Canadian tour.

Joel Plaskett will be supported by opening act Mo Kenny.

Sit OnStage with a diversity of music artists, ranging blues, folk indie to acoustic rock sessions. For music lovers, this is a fresh and exciting way to experience respected and known artists in an intimate and unique environment, while also discovering soon-to-be household names. VIEW SEATING
