ANDREW & ZACHARI SMITH
Friday April 25 at 7 pm

Andrew and Zachari Smith are not your typical indie folk duo.
Andrew (the father) is one of very few Canadians to have won the prestigious Kerrville NewFolk songwriting competition, is also a “world-class” tap style guitarist. Zachari (the son) can play any instrument he tries and his songwriting, often filled with political subject matter, harkens back to the early days of Dylan. Together they are a blend of top-notch songwriting, mandolin, dobro, banjo, suitcase drum kit, guitar and family harmonies -- always delightful and often surprising.

REBECCA LAPPA
Sunday July 20 at 3 pm

If you love a good story then you'll fall for Rebecca Lappa's songs; which bring fascinating characters to life through well-crafted lyrics and haunting melodies. Unlike typical teen songwriters who seek inspiration from their diary, Rebecca is inspired by history, myths and her imagination to write her trademark story songs. As you listen to her music, let her soulful vocals sweep you away!

EMALINE DELAPAIX
OVER THE MOON opening
Wednesday August 6

Emaline Delapaix: an Australian singer songwriter who lives between rural Western Canada and Germany with her big orange cat Reece. She spends a lot of time writing odd folk pop for piano, acoustic guitar and harp and sometimes whatever else she has lying about the place. Some say she sounds a little like Kate Bush or Tori Amos, but she also loves a lot of Scandinavian music: music that invokes the weather like storms and warm sunsets.

Over the Moon: duo Craig Bignell the percussionist with Pear/Susan Aglukark and Suzanne Levesque from the Traveling Mabels

THE ACOUSTIC GUITAR PROJECT
Sunday August 10 at 3 pm

TRAVELLING MABELS
Wednesday September 17 at 7 pm

LEEROY STAGGER
Saturday October 4 at 7 pm

RAKISH ANGLES
Saturday October 25 at 7 pm

The Rakish (ray-kish) Angles (not angels) were conjured up in a tranquil neck-of-the-woods beside the Pacific Ocean. Newgrass, Latin, gypsy-jazz, and old-time music weren't born there, yet they inspired the new acoustic vision of these musicians. There's an inspiring counterpoint to the band that strikes a chord - they simultaneously say sweet and mysterious, novel and ageless - a quiet complexity that is honest and musical and natural.

The Rakish Angles - Dan Richter (Guitar), Ali Romanow (Violin), Simon Hocking (Mandolin) and Boyd Norman (Bass) - have been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award in 2009 as well as Western Canadian Music Awards in 2010 and 2012.
