Pat Maloney
Rosé All Day: June 8, 2019
 

Pat Maloney is a Canadian songwriter, a storyteller, and a serious whistler. He’s a concerned citizen, with a busted acoustic guitar and a fake bass drum. He’s a too-tall, Ottawa ex-pat, singing songs as meaningful as he can muster, with a healthy, self-defaming sense of humor. Audiences are dazzled by Pat Maloney’s natural candor on stage. The ad-lib banter comes across like a comedy show, while his brand of quirky folk music doesn’t hesitate to explore the lesser-spoken meaning of things.

Skydiggers featuring Paul Langlois
Peak to Shore Music Festival: July 20, 2019
 

For the Peak to Shore Music Festival, the Skydiggers will be joined by Paul Langlois of The Tragically Hip! Chemistry, passion, energy and evolution are a few words that come to mind when Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson talk about twenty-five years together in Skydiggers. "It all started in the beverage room of the Spadina Hotel. That is essentially when the band came together." says Josh. The sound developed at an impressive rate, thanks to the discipline and work ethic the weekly showcase placed on the band. New songs, new covers and a sound that grew to include electric instruments developed in the hothouse atmosphere of rehearsals, songwriting sessions and live performances.

Julian Taylor Band
Mountain Music Series: August 10, 2019
 

The voice drifting into the lobby from the soundcheck sounds so timeless it might be emerging from some ancient well of souls at the end of the world, but it’s also fresh and vulnerable. Not a revivalist, but a musical revisionist, Julian Taylor masterfully re-combines and updates the vintage sounds that inspired him, to create bold, innovative songs. Taylor, of both West Indian and Native Canadian decent, is a charismatic frontman, prolific songwriter, and endearing individual – the kind who immediately connects and makes you feel at ease.

The Sheepdogs
Guitar Trail: September 7, 2019

Proud purveyors of guitar-driven modern-day retro rock, the triple Juno Award-winning Saskatoon-based quintet has expanded its sound on Changing Colours to encompass more styles and hues to enhance the Sheepdogs’ trademark beef-and-boogie twin-axe riffs, hooks, shuffles and long-haired aesthetic. "We identify strongly with rock ‘n roll, but there’s definitely some branching out," says Ewan Currie, The Sheepdogs’ singer, guitarist, songwriter and occasional - and yes, you’re reading this correctly - clarinetist. "The sounds we use on this – there’s more keyboards featuring Shamus and more stringed instruments. It’s still rock ‘n roll but there are more colours."
