Roxanne Potvin and her sideman, Nick Zubeck, put on a fantastic show for us with songs taken from her early blues albums and those from her latest album, "All It Was."

Ben enthralled the audience with songs from his albums, Golden and Better Human. We were lucky to have him in our intimate house concert setting. If you see that Ben is playing anywhere near you, don't pass up the opportunity to see and hear his show.

Belle Plaine gave us a wonderful show! Her stories and songwriting were beautifully matched to her captivating voice. We were lucky to have first crack at her soon to be released album, Malice, Mercy, Grief and Wrath. Be sure to give it a listen and better yet, find Belle Plaine in concert somewhere and see her in person. You'll be happy you did!
It was an honour to host BC's longest running Bluegrass band, 5 ON A STRING, for a summer house concert! 5 on a String has been picking and singing bluegrass music all around the Pacific Northwest for over twenty-five years. The 5 on their strings are: Hugh Ellenwood on fiddle, Garry Stevenson on guitar, Gordie Sadler on banjo, Dan Mornar on upright bass, and Tim Eccles on mandolin.

We were thrilled to host Harry and the Gondolas on their first tour of Canada all the way from Bristol, UK! These young men captured everyone's attention and kept the house entertained and thrilled with their energy, upbeat tempos and songwriting. Be sure to check out their Facebook and Bandcamp pages.
We had the joy and honour of being Vivian and Riley's first stop on a Canadian tour just after their participation in the Folk Alliance International conference in Kansas City.
Vivian and Riley tap into the deepest parts of American music, taking old songs that have seldom been heard and presenting them next to their own timeless and visceral originals. When they are not performing as duo, they’re often found sitting knee to knee, playing under the canopy of trees at fiddle festivals across the country, such as the gathering where they met in June of 2016. Across any campground, or concert venue, the echos of their vibrant and magnetic harmonies ring out.

Raquel delivered a fantastic show for the holiday! The first set included her personal take on some Christmas classics as well as a couple original Christmas songs. The second set included originals, including songs from her upcoming album. How lucky we were that she contacted us for a show while she was home from Nashville for the holidays! You are going to be hearing more from Raquel in the future. For more on her music, check out her website, www.raquelcole.com
