BURIED TREASURES AND HIDDEN GEMS
EXPLORING THE SECRETS OF THE GREAT NORTH AMERICAN SONGBOOK


Back by popular demand at the Home Smith Bar of the Old Mill Toronto, Ross brings his acclaimed “Hidden Gems” show to the Home Smith Bar to present to you an evening’s voyage of discovery as he uncovers long forgotten jewels hidden away in our popular standards - THE VERSE.

Often lost to the mists of time, the Great North American Songbook offers hundreds of examples of buried treasure in Verses - those forgotten bits of music that precede the well-loved and well-remembered refrain.

Experience the joy of renewing your love for these great songs as Ross dusts off these delicious morsels of music and tells you the history behind each song! Marvel at the beautiful interpretations of vocalist Carolyn Credico, with Lew Mele on bass, and of course, Ross at the piano. Fans that have seen this show already will be pleased to hear lots of new tunes!
