We have limited dinner reservations with staggered ordering times between
5:30 and 6:45.  We are trying to simplify the dinner reservation option since it was a bit confusing.  All of our guests that choose "ticket with dinner reservation" are welcome anytime after 5:30 on show nights to start off with a beverage.  Our kitchen serves our wood fired pizza along with show night specials, that are thought up the day of the show, between the times of 5:30 and 7:00 to ensure you have time to eat before the show starts.  We will do our best to feed all of our guests in a timely fashion from our small homestyle kitchen.   
 
When fully booked the dinner option will not be available in the show night selection box. Guests choosing the "ticket only" option are welcome anytime after 7:00.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Took your words 
Stumbled strummed and hummed along 
Hammered till they spelled out 
The world’s saddest broken hearted song
 
- Heartbreak Song For The Radio – The LYNNeS 

The LYNNeS are Canadian heartbreak poets Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson. The two songwriters are not new to working together, having toured and written songs off and on over the past 10 years, and with Miles having produced two of Hanson's albums (River of Sand, 2014 and 7 Deadly Spins, 2015). For THE LYNNeS songs are what matter the most, and their debut album “Heartbreak Song For The Radio” pairs hauntingly gritty lyrics with tight vocal harmonies. 

The duo adopted an old school approach to recording their album, choosing to record to tape and recording all the bed tracks and many of the vocal and acoustic guitar parts live off the floor. Tracks like “Don't Look Down” and “Dark Waltz” showcase the unmistakable touch of Juno-award winning guitarist Kevin Breit (Nora Jones, KD Lang, Rosanne Cash). The infectious “Recipe for Disaster” highlights the songwriting duo's knack to craft a catchy melody and memorable lyrics, while the radio-friendly title track “Heartbreak For The Radio” begs for the listener to hit repeat. The athletic groove of the funky “Halfway To Happy” is a brilliant counterweight to the airy “Blue Tattoo,” which would not be out of place on a Fleetwood Mac album. 

Each song on the album is a co-write, producing a truly collaborative effort, drawing on the strengths two Lynn(e), to create a sum greater than two individual parts. 

I'm tired of falling for cowboys in the dark 
I'm tired of giving away my heart 
Of walking a line that's always shifting 
Being the hero and doing all the heavy lifting 

- Heavy Lifting – The LYNNeS 

The two witty songwriters play off each other live, often leaving the audience howling with laughter with their between-song-banter. Miles has a slight edge in the humour department. Not surprising given Hanson’s burden of a lifetime of carrying the weight of a superfluous E. In addition to their beautiful harmonies, the two are skilled multi-instrumental musicians (acoustic and electric guitars, piano, harmonica, mandolin, percussion). 


Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters, with fourteen albums to her credit, the winner of four Canadian Folk Music awards (including 2011 English Songwriter of the Year), and a 2003 Juno award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year. Her song “Black Flowers” appeared on Claire Lynch’s Grammy nominated album “North By South.” “Lynn Miles makes being forlorn feel like a state of grace” - John Pareles, NY Times 

Lynne Hanson has been playing her brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” for the past 10 years, has released 6 albums, won the Colleen Peterson Award for songwriting, and been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award. “Lynne seems headed for that record territory inhabited by seasoned songwriters such as Nancy Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Gauthier and Lucinda Williams” - Barry Hammond, Penguin Eggs
