Let's get ready to rock the 705!

A full band. The biggest stage of the year. Let's do this.


     Friends, summer is finally upon us, and the world as we once knew it is slowly returning. In celebration of that, yours truly has been hard at work putting together a season to remember! Joined by three incredibly talented musicians, I couldn't be more excited to step onto the main stage at Rotaryfest, Sault Ste Marie's biggest summer festival, at 8:00 PM on the evening of Friday, 15 July 2022. In conjunction with this concert, my new single Twist Of Fate from the upcoming album All The Best In All You Do will be released on the same date on all major streaming platforms! I cannot thank the Rotary Committee of Sault Ste Marie enough for this incredible opportunity, and I must acknowledge that absolutely none of this would be possible without all of your love and support. Thank you all, and I'll see you at the show!

 

With gratitude,

Mike Haggith

Brandan Glew - Drums and Percussion

Brandan Glew is no stranger to working with Mike Haggith. Since Mike's 2015 release of The Warrenside, Brandan has been supporting Mike from behind on the drums. For two years, Mike and Brandan were part of The Din, a successful alternative rock band from Sault Ste. Marie. During that time, they wrote several songs together, and played countless shows. Now, after a brief break for dinner and therapy, Brandan is once again ready to support Mike on his solo musical journey. Brandan will add his usual bombastic drumming, and overly angelic voice, to enhance the already amazing sound coming from in front of him.

 

Chris Nielsen - Lead Guitar

No stranger to the energy of live performance, Chris Nielsen has been a mainstay in the Sault Ste Marie punk rock scene for countless years, and is best known recently for his high octane performances beside bassist Matthew Quinn in A Dire Setback. Established as a great entertainer with phenomenal technical skills and a flair for the dramatic, Nielsen adds an element of attitude and passion to the group that is sure to leave the crowd buzzing.

 

Matthew Quinn - Bass Guitar

Over the past few years, Quinn has really started to find his groove. Having played countless shows with A Dire Setback, he is no stranger to the stage. When asked to back up Mike on bass, he did not hesitate as he has been a long time friend and fan of Mike and has followed his various projects over the years. When asked how he felt about finally being able to play with Mike, he responded, “Locking down the groove with Brandan for the first time live, beside my best friend Chris, for one of the most talented musicians I know, Mike? … I am not worthy."

Of course, no Mike Haggith concert would be complete without yours truly. Learn more about Mike, the stories behind the material on the concert set list, and so much more down below!

Alternative. Indie. You'll find it all right here.

     Mike Haggith is an original alternative/indie recording and performing artist, residing in the small northern mining town of Thompson, Manitoba. At thirty years old, Haggith is best-known for his distinctive musical delivery, complimented by heavily introspective lyrics. Writing largely from personal experience as a therapeutic outlet, his discography has traced the ups and downs of relationships, life events, and the hardships of living remotely. His latest record, Bridges, takes this approach to new heights. In addition to these efforts, he hosts monthly livestreams on Facebook featuring other independent artists, and reviews albums on Mike's Spin, a  YouTube-based series.
