Auntie Kate hits the stage like a barely controlled force of nature, rocking and kicking out a powerful blues routine honed in the clubs of Western Canada. Auntie Kate and the Uncles of Funk stir up a mess of blues, seasoned with good old R&B and delivered on a plateful of soul and funk.
Prepare for a night of Full Contact Folk! After years together touring Western Canada and the US, siblings Colleen (guitar, vocals) Kelt (bass, penny whistle, vocals) and adopted brother Greg Madill (bouzouki, mandolin, bodhran, vocals) bring humour, joy and harmony to their powerful, rollicking stage show. This Victoria-based band has a massive Celtic and Canadian repertoire alongside solid song-writing tackling everything from ‘bombs falling from the sky’ to the fires raging in Alberta and Montana, to siren’s song and dancing outside on a summer night.
Lost Hwy Trio:
What happens when you mix country fiddle player with a bluesman and a jazz bassist? A one-way ticket to the Lost Hwy! Serious old-school country blues, with a little Memphis sunshine thrown in. Featuring Miriam Sonstenes, Scott White, and Bill Johnson.
Terminal Station Blues Band: A Blues-Rock band in the best sense of the word. They take the traditional blues sound and kick it into high gear. Their music is raw and exciting – full of fat bass lines, explosive drumming, risk taking solos and impassioned vocals.
Leeroy Stagger and his band: Call it alt-country, call it Americana, call it folk-rock, Leeroy Stagger does justice to them all. The seasoned singer-songwriter cuts right through to the heart and soul in his songs about life, love, and the road less traveled.
Pony Club: A little country, a little rock, a lot of fun!
Radio Grande: Veteran musicians and alumnae of bands She Stole My Beer, Barney Bentall & The Legendary Hearts, The High Bar Gang, and BTU, this trio joins forces to create a sound all their own. They’ve created a cool 70’s country-rock vibe with hints of Pure Prairie League, The Eagles, and whispers of Loretta and Linda Ronstadt.
Shaky Ground: Five Decades of Classic Hits. It’s become a tradition to close our season with the ultimate party band! Get ready to dance the night away!
