Samantha Martin and The Haggard One of the rising stars of Toronto’s roots-rock scene, Samantha Martin and the Haggard

pay tribute to the classic R&B, Soul, Rock and Country Stars of years gone by in a way that few today do. Recent comparisons include Adele and Amy Winehouse. Samantha’s voice “is a force of nature”, she’s the ”real deal”. For the Yonge-Dundas Square show Samantha and the Haggard are joined by Gospel Divas, The Tonettes (Amoy and Ciceal Levy and Marlene O’Neill). Beer Garden provided by Hard Rock Cafe. Opens at 4:00.
