More about the Musicians!

Celeigh Cardinal Trio (Oct 17)
Celeigh Cardinal is a prairie girl through and through. Her heartfelt, biographical songs are carried by a voice that harkens to the golden era of jazz and blues. This Métis singer/songwriter is easily one of the finest vocalists to hail from the Peace Country. A Celeigh Cardinal performance is a profound, soulful triumph of songs that blend roots, folk, rock and pop. Her voice at once evokes a gentleness and control which can turn to raucous, gut wrenching, twisted, turn-yourself-inside-out blues within a single phrase. In May of 2017, Celeigh was the recipient of a “REVEAL Indigenous Arts Award” from the Hnatyshyn Foundation in Manitoba. In 2016, she received an “ATB Listens” grant from ATB Financial and participated in the (Re)Claim program at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Celeigh has also received a Youth Role Model Award from the Spirit Seekers Conference in Grande Prairie, and was appointed the Cultural Ambassador for the 2010 Arctic Winter Games. She is a passionate performer who can draw an emotional response with her deliberate words and rich contralto voice. She is currently based out of Edmonton, Alberta and continues to perform alongside her duo, trio and with her band.

Paul Woida (Nov 21)

Paul replicates the full sound of an entire band all by himself by using loops played and recorded live on the spot.

Often compared to Ed Sheeran, Jason Mraz, his unique live show turns heads and wins the hearts of new fans wherever he goes. His incredible musicianship (guitars, drums, keyboards and vocals), catchy hooks and emotive voice are unforgettable.

No stranger to big stages, Paul has opened for big names like Casting Crowns and Meghan Trainor.

Scott Cook and the Second Chances (Jan 30)

A roots balladeer with a rare personal warmth, Canada's Scott Cook has managed to distil the stories collected over eleven years touring across Canada, the USA, Europe, Asia, Australia and elsewhere into straight-talking, keenly observant verse. Road-worn, painfully honest, and deeply human, his tunes weave threads of folk, roots, blues, soul and country over spacious fingerstyle guitar and clawhammer banjo arrangements. His fourth release, One More Time Around, was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award, and its opening track "Pass It Along" won the Folk and Acoustic category in the 2013 UK Songwriting Contest, with UK magazine Maverick Country naming him "one of Canada's most inspiring and imaginative storytellers". In 2015 he put together a seven-piece honky-tonk band for his fifth studio album, Scott Cook and the Long Weekends Go Long, and in 2017 he released his sixth album Further Down the Line, earning his second Canadian Folk Music Award nomination, for English Songwriter of the Year. The album is packaged in a 132-page softcover book offering a look back, in words and pictures, on his last decade of near-incessant rambling. Cook is one of the hardest-working DIY troubadours on the road today, averaging over 150 shows and a dozen festivals every year since 2007. All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.

Amy Bishop (Feb 27)

Amy's voice recently wowed audiences nationwide on CTVs The Launch.

She has an instinctive ability to craft stories into song and deliver them with the sincerity and passion of a best friend – qualities that make Amy an undeniable Canadian talent.

Amy was born a singer, and grew into a songwriter through a lifetime of experience. She puts it all together in engaging performances that show off her range and power. An evening with Amy Bishop delivers rollicking “ain’t life grand” road songs, soulful versions of love-gone-wrong ballads, and folk-based acoustic numbers that allow her naked vocal beauty to shine through.

Flint and Feather (March 27)

Flint & Feather are a free-spirited husband and wife duo who are deeply passionate about connecting with people through folk/roots music, stories, and laughter. Based in Calgary, Alberta, band members Joal and Lauren Kamps blend storytelling with songwriting to create charming ‘Rocky Mountain Folk-Pop’ songs inspired by Canadian history, rocky mountain folklore, and their own personal journeys. Their original songs are filled with vivid imagery accented by delicate harmonies, and their honest and engaging approach to performing connects with listeners of all ages and backgrounds.
