Ben Caplan is both the roar of the hurricane and the eye of the storm. He has an uncanny ability to channel both wild abandon and quiet introspection. His songwriting pulls from many diverse influences but both his music and his lyrics regularly draw from his Jewish heritage. Often mixing biblical imagery and klezmer-inflected melodies, Caplan re-appropriates ancient sounds and themes with a decidedly contemporary twist.
Ben released his first studio album in 2011, and has spent the last ten years recording music and performing to ever growing audiences in music clubs and theatres around the world. For the ten year anniversary of his first release, Caplan has recorded a retrospective collection of stripped-back re-interpretations of songs from across his catalogue. The album, entitled Recollection, will be released in October of 2021 followed by an extensive European and Canadian tour.
In an effort to mitigate the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required for entry. This policy will be added to the mandatory public health measures already in effect.
The province of Ontario requires attendees to supply government-issued proof of full COVID-19 vaccination (with Government of Canada approved vaccines, completed at least 14 days before gate time). Government-issued ID matching details on vaccination must also be presented for validation purposes. If you were vaccinated outside of the province of Ontario or outside of Canada, please provide a digital PDF or printed copy of your government issued vaccination confirmation receipt for your Government of Canada approved vaccine. Electronic vaccine receipt can be obtained using a green Ontario health card via covid19.ontariohealth.ca.
Active screening, contact tracing, proper face masking and PPE, physical distancing from individuals outside of one’s household, and capacity limits all have important roles to play in enhancing the safety of our performance spaces, limiting viral spread, and improving health metrics in the wider community.
