Dougal Bain McLean
http://dougalbainmclean.bandcamp.com/
A singularity was broken and scattered into trillions of pieces and a few tiny pieces became the Earth. What was dust became a boy, and this boy became an artist. Dougal Bain McLean places his universe at your feet in every show he plays. This observer of hearts has found his voice: warm, complete and playful, a touch of ephemeral sorrow. Paired with his guitar and his first love, the violin, that voice may transport you through the world of loss and redemption, but you’ll marvel at journey all the same. Because when you hear him play, you’ll know this dusty universe has conspired in his favor.

Fish and Bird

Fish & Bird are a five-piece indie-folk powerhouse. Following the release of "Every Whisper is a Shout Across the Void," they toured hard all around Canada, from Vancouver Island to PEI to the Yukon, playing festivals, clubs, and house concerts. The album picked up a Western Canadian Music Award nomination, the band traveled to Whitehorse to play at the awards ceremony and at the associated BreakOut West music festival. The band has performed to a sold-out CBC studio audience, traveled to Memphis, TN to perform an official showcase at the International Folk Alliance conference. They have weird vocal improv sections, they rock out in 11/8, sometimes it seems like they're playing bluegrass, and they might make you cry.

Fish & Bird

Fish & Bird are Taylor Ashton and Adam Gray, though not necessarily in that order. These tunesmiths hail from the west coast of Canada and compose melodious concoctions steeped in folk, brewed in the dense coniferous backwoods of their strange minds. Between them, they play banjo, fiddle, mandolin, upright bass, and even guitar. They are currently ... more info
