Get ready Prince Edward County – first major concert featuring Sarah Harmer at the Drill Hall | Base31
What You Need to Know
Prince Edward County is about to get rocked as we host our first major concert event at the Drill Hall.
Sarah Harmer is our first major act opening up this iconic space.
The Drill Hall (Building 20) is located at the south end of the property – look for the signs helping to direct the flow of traffic. We will also have parking attendants on site and our Base31 team sporting lanyards will be circling about.
With two JUNO awards and nine nominations, Sarah Harmer is everything that is right about the Canadian music scene. Formerly of bands like The Saddletramps and Weeping Tile, Harmer branched out on her own with great success. The album You Were Here was a commercial success, with singles “Basement Apartment” and “Don’t Get Your Back Up“. TIME magazine called it the year’s best debut album. It was eventually certified platinum for sales of 100,000 copies in Canada. In 2005, Harmer released the album All Of Our Names which won the JUNO Award for Best Adult Alternative Album, a new award category in 2005. She continues to be a driving force in the industry and a must-see for audiences everywhere.
Artist Profile | Annelise Noronha
Annelise is primarily known as an engineer/producer. But for the past 20 years, she has also been an artist, writer, and composer. Recent releases include her 6th album titled In The Headlights on Zero Degrees Music (digital and vinyl 2020) , as well as single “Constellations” featuring Lisa Bozokovic in November 2020, and “Radio McLuhan” featuring the writing of Marshall McLuhan, and her 2021 Christmas album “The St. Nick of Time”. As an audio engineer and mixer, she has worked with the most indie of artists, to some pretty famous ones (Jennifer Lopez, Oscar Peterson). She has mixed film score for Lesley Barber (Manchester By The Sea), and for Oscar-winner Mychael Danna.
As a writer, Annelise has written the music for plays, a musical for the Rethink Breast Cancer organization, source cues for many tv shows and movies. She continues to write/co-write songs for artists, events, films and commercials.
And as a musician (guitar/bass/accordion), her gig history is prolific, from large festival stages to the tiniest of venues. Noronha has played solo and also performed alongside many Toronto artists (Selina Martin, Justin Rutledge, The Warped 45s, Arlene Bishop, Pamela Brennan).
