Dean Batstone hosts the Songwriter’s Showcase welcoming Low Country Hill (Paul Hogeterp) and Bruce Enloe for an evening of songs and stories September 22, at 8 pm. Doors open at 7 pm.
Low Country Hill is the moniker for Hamilton-based singer-songwriter Paul Hogeterp. In 2014 he released his self-titled, critically-acclaimed debut. Recorded by Dave King at a century barn on the outskirts of Hamilton, the album came together with the help of musical family and friends as well as seasoned luminaries Pat Sansone (Wilco) and Bill Dillon (Joni Mitchell, Peter Gabriel). One reviewer suggested Low Country Hill “evokes comparisons to such stalwarts as Hey Rosetta and Bon Iver, but yet really doesn’t sound particularly like either. The tracks stand on their own as testaments to superlative songwriting and an album produced to showcase haunting, beautiful music (Floorshime Zipper Boots).”
Touring has taken Paul down logging roads in northern Ontario and through traffic jams on the Lionsgate Bridge in Vancouver - all for the joy of sharing the songs in intimate venues with music lovers. After nearly two years of performing, he burrowed in his basement studio for the last half of 2016 to write for his next record. The result of that effort is Guesthouse, a five-song EP recorded in May-July of this year. Dave King returns as producer and drummer while musical wizard Paul Linklater (Bidini Band, Colleen and Paul) plays bass and electric guitar for the project. Hogeterp is feeling blessed and lucky to have the (gentle giant) footprints of these creative and kindred spirits in his new work.
Bruce Enloe is a singer –songwriter performing original songs that are equal parts folk, Americana and Beatle influenced pop. Bruce was born and raised in Bryan-College Station, Texas; the town where Lyle Lovett met Robert Earl Keen. He has since added California, Europe and Canada to his list of both musical influences and travels. After several years fronting the Burning Sensations, Kemptville Ontario’s largest band, he is now recording his third album and striking out on his own for a series of listening room style acoustic shows.
