James & The North Shore Kamloops, BC

A new group honing their tones whilst living together at the crossroads. Imagine if Leonard Cohen took the reigns of Crazy Horse or Neutral Milk Hotel. You can get lost in the poetry or dance your faces off. “Those Hoodlums that make beautiful music."

The High Quadra Ramblers Victoria, BC

The High Quadra Ramblers are newly formed duo creating their own interpretation of traditional music – fusing oldtime with classical, metis, bluegrass and more. Hailing from the East Coast and the West Coast, these ramblers bring both sides of the continent together for the love of traditional music.

The Ramblers were formed during the cold long winter over a need for mournful appalachian mountain tunes and a love of traditional music. Mack has played fiddle since he was 8, competing in Western Canadian fiddle competitions and developing a wild, syncopated style. Kaitlin picked up the banjo after playing guitar and piano all her life and found a rhythmic, melodic bliss. Banjo and fiddle are a timeless partnership of instruments. With beautiful oldtime vocal harmonies and skilled instrumentation, they weave intricate notes over the droning backdrop of clawhammer banjo. They play a wide range of traditional music, from metis to celtic, appalachian, oldtime, bluegrass, cajun and roots. Expect high-energy hillbilly hoedowns to droney, middle-eastern inspired instrumentals.

Vic Horvath, Victoria BC.

Lil Buddy and the Blue Meanies, Victoria BC

What if folk and jazz had a baby that was raised with punk low tones and lots of vibrato? From the streets to the stage stopping at a few gutters in between.

Vic Horvath (Folk Garage)

Vic horvath is a walk under the glowing embers in the wood stove sky. A mouth that mutters magic and breathes sinful strings and cackling feathers. This performer is found in dim lit bars crowded with whisky and slurred romances. more info
