Description

Headliner: The Mudmen.

Always entertaining and definitely unique, The Mudmen are a blast of Celtic energy whose members are known to be characters both on and off the stage. First discovered in 1993 as “The Campbell Brothers”, the band signed a deal with EMI Records and changed their name to “Mudmen” in 1998. Their music has been featured on Xbox and PlayStation games, NBC’s television show “Black Donnellys”, WWE Wrestling, Don Cherry’s 9, 19, 20, 21, 24, 27,29 hockey videos, The Mackenzie Brothers TWO-FOUR Special on CBC, HBO’S Shameless TV show, HNIC Coach’s Corner (Dale Hunter tribute), 6 music videos on Much Music, and they’ve reached top 20 on the Edge radio.

Opener: Les Rats D'Swompe

The Rats d’Swompe are proud French Canadians with a shared passion for traditional violin, songs everyone can join in with and the music of yesteryear. As bass guitarist Martin Rocheleau declares, ‘We are trying to recreate the kitchen parties of our great-grandparents.’ Based in Ottawa, Les Rats are one of the few groups committed to the Franco-Ontarian folk tradition. They launched their first album, the acoustic Legend of Jos Grandbois, in 2016, following it up with Vivre en Ville in 2018. Martin, fiddler Patrick Pharand and guitarist Yan Leduc have developed their own fresh style which has been described as ‘festive trad-rock, and expanded their repertoire to include original compositions. Electric guitar, drums, banjo and mandolin have been added to their stage performances, which are infused with a wild energy. Be warned: it might be contagious!
