St. Catharines

World renowned producer and singer-songwriter Daniel Lanois will headline this year's Niagara Wine Festival.

Lanois - a native of Hamilton Ontario - has worked with countless artists including Peter Gabriel, Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson. Lanois produced Grammy award-winning albums for U2 and Bob Dylan. Lanois is also an accomplished singer-songwriter producing six of his own albums and touring worldwide annually.

“It is very exciting to have an internationally recognized artist headlining the festival this year”, said Ken Weir President of the Niagara Wine Festival. “Mr. Lanois is an accomplished singer-songwriter and a Canada Walk of Fame inductee. I think festival goers will really respond enthusiastically to his music,” added Weir.

On Sept. 25, Lanois will headline the first-ever ‘Canadian Singer & Songwriter’s Night’ which will feature performances by Oliver Black, Joe Lapinski, Martha Wainwright and Neverending White Lights.

“It’s really rare to have five big-name acts from Canada perform on the same stage on one night - especially at the low ticket price we are offering. We were pleased to be the recipient of Celebrate Ontario funding from the Ontario Government that has allowed us to put on an evening of entertainment of this caliber. We encourage everyone to come out and enjoy a night of diverse musical Canadian talent,” added Weir.
