Northern Rock

Lucie Idlout

Speed Control

Digawolf

Think Marianne Faithfull or P.J. Harvey and you’re part way to describing Canada’s best-kept alt-rock secret. Lucie Idlout is the real deal — a gravelly-voiced rocker whose music can be brooding and full of emotional unrest, or smouldering and passionate. Either way it is 100% authentic.

We dare you to sit still when power trio Speed Control hits the stage with their infectiously high-octane, beat-driven rock. Brothers Jody and Graeme Peters and bandmate Ian March give new meaning to the words “global warming” with a stage act that’s pulse-raisingly energetic and irresistible!

With a lived-in voice that belies his years and an incredible guitar technique, Digawolf has been compared to Jimi Hendrix and Mark Knopfler. His songs draw from a passion for his native land in the Tlicho community of Behchoko. A hard-driving beat underscores anthemic melodies in music that seamlessly brings together tradition and innovation.
