The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra (BC): This collection of musicians will weave their stories and share real feelings with guitars and violins, accordions and bass, melodies and musicmakers gleaned from their wanderings. Here are the troubadours to remind you that this music could not exist without warm bodies in search of harmony.

JANUARY 8, 2017 - ALBERTA NIGHT:This night is our ANNUAL FOOD BANK DRIVE.
Chloe Albert Band: Award-winning songwriter Chloe Albert's song canon comes together at the intersection of folk, country, and pop - with jazzy and bluesy highlights. Albert's music speaks for itself and has legs of its own. With each new album release, she seems to up her game, and we're expecting even more great songs to come as she continues on her journey as one of Alberta's most popular songwriters.
Mike Plume Band: Moncton native Mike Plume has made his way to Alberta via Nashville where he spent the better part of a decade. Plume wears his national pride on his sleeve and songs are laden with many Canadian references and, appropriately, share many musical styles. While Roots-Rock might be the most appropriate 'catchall' for Plume's career to date, he also flirts wonderfully with Celtic/Folk/Rock. He is unique.
Duane Steele Trio: Duane Steele is among Canada's top country recording artists and songwriters with a professional career dating back to 1984. From the Peace Country town of Hines Creek, Steele led his previous band Rock 'N' Horse into top 20 singles and a Juno nomination for Country Band of the Year. Fans relate to his lyrics. Steele's pure voice and natural stage presence make his live shows a must see
Cindy Church Duo (ON)Canadian country and folk artist Cindy Church has been nominated for a Juno for Best Country Female Vocalist. Her wonderful voice and wide appeal have become legendary through her membership in iconic groups Quartette and Lunch At Allen's. Church is a performer with a wide range: country, certainly, but also jazz, as in her 'Hoagy Carmichael' collaborations.
Old Man Luedecke (NS):Old Man Luedecke is the recording name of two-time Juno Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and banjo player Chris Luedecke. Luedecke is the real thing: a modern-day people's poet, traveling bard, and balladeer. He's played around the world to a loving (and increasing) fan base. His are songs from the heart, told in a simple and compelling way.
The Eastern Belles with Catherine MacLellan (PE): Three award-winning song-writers Catherine MacLellan, Ashley Condon and Meaghan Blanchard choose The Island to live and create. The Eastern Belles are three distinctly stun-ning voices that, alone, stand powerfully and come together in the sweetest harmonies you've ever heard.
Corin Raymond Band (ON): A troubadour in the style of Johnny Cash draws comparisons to John Prine. Raymond's songs, which are very Canadian, slightly apocalyptic, and suggest criminal activity, cause impromptu sing-a-longs. Judges quote his lyrics when handing down sentences! He makes truckers cry. Raymond has the words you've been looking for.
Red Moon Road (MB): Returned from a year of adventure-filled touring across 7 countries in Europe and North America and honed in house concerts and main stage festival appearances, Red Moon Road is a tapestry of song, storytelling and spontaneous repartee woven seamlessly into something truly exceptional.
The Ennis Sisters (NFLD): With multiple accolades - a Juno Award, SOCAN Award, multiple East Coast Music Awards, and Music Newfound-land and Labrador Awards - The Ennis Sisters, comprised of Maureen, Teresa and Karen Ennis, are world renowned and celebrated songbirds. With their buttery harmonies, and voices as powerful as the Atlantic. It's in their bones to sing.
The Small Glories (MB) Folk powerhouse pair Cara Luft and JD Edwards are a dynamic new duo planted on the Canadian Prairies. Luft is a Juno award winner, co-founder of folk trio The Wailin' Jennys. Edwards has a voice that ranges from gentle and melodic to fierce and powerful. Together they are a tour de force.
David Francey Trio (ON) This Scottish-born Canadian carpenter-turned-songwriter has truly mastered the art of storytelling, writing extraordinary songs of ordinary people. For decades, Francey worked in railyards, construction sites and the Yukon bush, writing poetry, setting it to melodies and singing it to himself. Now this established national performer has released 11 albums, won 3 Juno Awards and a SOCAN Folk Music Award.
