Uncle Harry & the Kickdtands

Uncle Harry & The Kickstands have kept toes tapping across Ontario for years. Harry Lee Follon is a song writer from Guelph, he is held up by The Kickstands, who are an all star team of Guelph musicians. Straddling the line between Country and Folk-Rock, their tunes make you push the pedal all the way to the floor. This past year was special for the band, as they had the chance to open up for the Jim Cuddy Band twice, as well as make their debut at River Fest in Elora, ON.

Carrie Clark

Hamilton, Ontario’s Carrie Clark has been playing and performing since 1996. Starting off as a bassist in an all-girl original hard rock band, moving into the pop/rock scene in the late nineties. After a fortuitous conversation with long-time friend and fellow musician Marco Bressette (Dead Tired) she auditioned and enrolled in Mohawk College’s Applied Music program for Jazz Performance. In the mid 2000’s Carrie started working as a session musician at Hamilton’s Grant Avenue Studio, while backing up co-owner J.P.Riemens on double bass. Much of the late 2000’s was spent playing and recording various projects (including Paul’s 2007 album Redneck Lullaby and Jace Martin’s self titled 2008 Album amongst others).

In 2013 she met drummer Robin Pirson on a gig with local singer-songwriter Mary Simon. Sparks flew on and off the stage and they began working with legendary producer the late Nick Blagona on Mississippi Bends 2014 self-titled EP. Carrie and Robin hit a groove as a rhythm section that would go on to back up many Hamilton bands on performances and recordings including her own compositions. Carrie started writing in 2021, inspired by her time playing with Robin and the members of The New Rebel Westerners.

The Self titled EP is real and earthy, with an Americana Blues feel, recorded live off the floor at Deadquarters Studio in Hamilton. It will be officially released with a limited run of vinyl in 2023. A brand new full-length album is already in the works at the studio.
