Bob Snider – Singer-songwriter Bob Snider has played on the street and in the concert hall. He has been called a “national treasure”, a “living legend” and “author of some of the best Canadian songs of the decade”.

Marianne Girard – Marianne Girard ‘grabs you by the soul and won’t let go’. Canadian Folk Music Awards nominee for 2009, Marianne simply captivates. “Wow!” Not likely to forget about this one. She DOES stand out.

Lynn Harrison – A compelling performer who connects powerfully with audiences of all ages, Lynn Harrison is known for “charming, positive, uplifting and life-affirming songs” (Penguin Eggs magazine). Lynn has earned songwriting honours from the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals’ Songs from the Heart and was a Top 10 Finalist Toronto’s Song Contest. D’Arcy Wickham – An exceptional artist with all styles of guitar picking has highlighted decades of performing experience, and was recognized by an OCFF “Songs From the Heart” award in 2007 for his song “Feather Fingers”.

ChoirGirlz – This highly entertaining, enlightening, and engaging female trio sings original songs about real issues with tight harmonies in many styles including cabaret, comedy, jazz, R & B, and more.

Ewan Dobson – Ewan Dobson has established himself as one of Canada’s most brilliant and exhilarating young guitarists, having won first prize in nearly every single Classical Guitar competition across the country. His impressive list of credentials includes winning the Canadian Fingerstyle Guitar Competition, as well other major awards.

Jory Nash – Jory Nash has a commanding stage presence; his strong, warm voice urges people to listen. Jory Nash has crisscrossed North America several times, playing folk festivals, folk clubs, concert series and house concerts. He has built a large, loyal fan-base and he has been fortunate enough to see most of North America in the process. Unusual things tend to happen to Jory on the road, and when not legally bound to silence he will incorporate these events into his onstage storytelling.

Max Woolaver – Reverend Max Woolaver is one of the most compelling Canadian singer/songwriters working in Canada today. Max Woolaver takes the listener across the psychic terrain of our current times through the medium of powerfully crafted and lyrically charged songs – from ripping bluegrass and poignant ballads to dark rocking songs.

Brian Gladstone – An imaginative songwriter unrestrained by conventional limitations, Gladstone’s four albums have been highly acclaimed in dozens of rave reviews worldwide. Gaining quick international recognition, his music is played on radio stations all over the world; and he has successfully made the jump from college and underground stations to mainstream rotation and play chart listings.
