GRUMPY’S CHICK PICKIN’ MONDAYS 1242 Bishop St. Montreal Qc H3G 2E3 (514) 866-9010
http://chickpickin.wix.com/home http://www.facebook.com/ChickPickinMondays 
Hosted by Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey
May 29 Fluffy Little Cowboy Not your usual East Coast girl group, the Fluffy Little Cowboys take traditional East Coast music, add some Eastern Ontario grit, and glue it all together with an Americana twang. They hone this sound to a sharp edge and, with it, deliver an engaging, energetic performance with a sound that they have dubbed 'beer-crying toe-tapping music'.
Jun 5 Karen Chung is a singer-songwriter from Montreal who plays the ukulele, and has spent the last three years performing in Canada and England. She blends upbeat melodies with tales of woe and heartbreak in order to create a modern indie folk pop sound. You can find more about her music online at www.facebook.com/karenchungmusic 
Jun12 Ali McCormick has been blazing her trail on the Canadian music scene over the past few years with a beat up old Taylor and penchant for befriending all those she meets along the way. She continues to intrigue audiences with her honest and impassioned performances.
Jun 19 Alex Charbonneau brings her classic country swang and strut, heaves the full blown guitar magic and give you a wink before she knocks you out, a must see.
Jun 26 Darling Cora is an indie folk-rock singer-songwriter and occasional humourist with a gorgeous voice and beautiful tunes from Toronto.
Jul 3 The Lef7overs were created in the summer of 2016 as an L7 cover band for a “Rock Camp for Girls” fundraiser. Since then, the 5pc all-girl band has added a variety of other female-fronted music to their repertoire such as songs by Joan Jett, No Doubt, and a few other popular favorites.
Jul 10 Bobby Dove is tall in side, sings big country songs about love loss and bottles, she is spiritual and old tyme, there is no faking this.
Jul 17 Nadine Altounji, a growing singer/songwriter and an accomplished guitarist is returning once again to the stage. She will be sharing self-penned songs as well as her own twists on classics that are dear to her.
Jul 24 TBA
Jul 31 Marie Hamilton is guided by a love of old melodies and song, Marie explores the spaces between her many (36) strings. A native Vermonter living in Montréal, she'll be joined on stage by her harp.
Aug 7 Lehzer hails from the west but was grew up in the east, playing homegrown country music and filling it all in with sweet banjo licks
Aug  14 Hunter McLean hails from the backwoods of Northern B.C. All her songs are semi-fictional autobiographical stories about her interactions with people and animals.
Aug 21 Roxanne Potvin, the Beatles made her want to write songs, the Blues made her want to rock the guitar, so she did that for a while, got a record deal, moved to Toronto, toured Canada, Europe and a bit of the US, got to meet and play with some of her heroes (!!). Few years later, moved to Montreal to write songs. Still doing that. Still rocking out occasionally too. She's working on her fifth album.
Sept 18 Laurence Made Me Cry is folk pop songstress Jo Whitby currently
hailing from the tenement lined streets of Glasgow, Scotland. There’s
an odd familiarity about the music of Laurence Made Me Cry, her songs
bring with them a sense of timelessness and warmth like meeting up
with an old friend.
Sep 25 Lynn Jackson ten years and six albums into her recording career, the one constant fans have come to expect is top notch songwriting and that voice.
