Eamon McGrath is a Canadian musician and writer from Edmonton, Alberta and currently based in Toronto, Ontario. On his own, his live performances are most often folk-oriented, where McGrath plays songs from his discography on acoustic instruments, but with a band the live show takes on a much more high-energy, punk rock influenced vein.

McGrath and White Whale released the album Peace Maker, which appeared on the !Earshot National Top 50 Chart in October 2010.

With nine albums to his credit, Eamon is also an author, having published two books on ECW Press.

Is this safe? Is this legal?

The weather is beautiful! The air is fresh! Every expert has told us that being outdoors is the best way to enjoy yourself while keeping you and those you care about safe while we navigate this pandemic. We expect the Province of Ontario to open up outdoor activities well in advance of this date, and with increasing numbers of people being vaccinated we don’t foresee any Covid-related postponements or cancellations from this point.

Regardless, we do ask you to work with us to help keep your Gravy Train stop socially distanced. It is the responsibility of the resident to ensure that physical distancing guidelines are being enforced.

If you have additional friends/family who would like to share in the performance, please arrange a socially distanced means for them to watch from a safe space — taking into consideration the phase that your community is currently in. Watching from a car or on the street has been a common option.

The safety and well-being of our performers is our primary focus. As such, we reserve the right to conclude a show if appropriate social distance guidelines are not being followed.

Furthermore, we ask that you select an area for the performance that facilitates physical distancing and can shelter musicians from snowfall/rainfall, if possible. The musicians may have electronic equipment that they need to keep dry. Large patio umbrellas, garages or covered porches work well. We’ve loved the creativity that past customers have shown in preparing stages, complete with lighting and heat!

I’m in! What do you need from me?

Payment prior to showtime is much appreciated. E-transfers can be sent to phoglounge@gmail.com

A three-prong extension cord nearby is helpful as well. We will need access to power for amplifiers and lighting, so pleas ensure that a working outdoor outlet is available.

It is also requested that, at the time of your booking, you provide us with an address and telephone number in case we need to contact you with a last-minute cancellation — either due to weather, or due to requests from authorities. (We don’t foresee any problems, but we want to be prepared on the off chance we are approached by an officer who interprets the restrictions differently than we do.)

Tips are encouraged for the artists when they are performing. They all have a socially-distanced tip jar for guests and passers-by. This has been instrumental in sustaining these musicians during the last two months. We’ve been amazed by the perseverance of the artists in the colder weather. Since March weather can be unpredictable, we hope you’re prepared for any weather contingencies!

We can’t stress enough how beneficial this has been to members of the music community who have been forced to remain idle while we work to slow the spread of COVID-19. Contact us with ANY questions at windsor@catchatrain.ca!
