Roots songstress Sarah Beatty has the voice of an angel and the lyrics and wit of a lifelong whiz kid. Her songs employ an uncommon simplicity, allowing the delightful storytelling of her songs space to breathe, grow and always, always impact.
Memphis Blues Competition semi-finalist Brendan James Stephens is a 1920s blues singer in the flesh. Hitchhiking between raucous house shows, rowdy bars and busking everywhere in between, he has crafted a way of singing both his own material and songs near one hundred years old in a way entirely his own.
New folk-meets-garage rock outfit Anthony Damiao & The Namedroppers occupy the space between comedy and tragedy, folk and rock ‘n’ roll, the moon and the pub, channeling erratic characters and their breakdowns both lyrically and vocally. With a band steeped in folk, “Canadiana” and punk, how could it not be one hella good time?
