    Kayla Luky

    with Zachary Lucky

    Fourth Stage

    After much positive response to Kayla Luky’s two last albums, she decided to further cultivate her music by working with award-winning producer Murray Pulver.

    Catriona Sturton & NEFE

    Fourth Stage

    Sings like an angel, plays like a beast. Rock and roll lover of Heavenly and the heaviest blues. After learning to file harmonica reeds in a back alley, Catriona toured Canada as the bassist for Halifax teen-rockers, Plumtree, who inspired the cult-favourite book and movie, Scott Pilgrim.

  4. Play

    AHI and Dylan Menzie

    Fourth Stage

    With his compelling, sprawling vocal range, a striking mix of familiar yet sophisticated musical lines and adept guitar skills, Dylan Menzie is quickly becoming one of Prince Edward Island’s prime exports. Few artists leave such an impression that you’ll never forget the exact moment you first heard them. With a voice like “gravel on silk”, Canadian songwriter and independent recording artist AHI is one of those rare finds. 

  5. Play

    Émile Bilodeau

    Fourth Stage

    A Granby Song Festival finalist and multiple prize-winner, Émile Bilodeau, with the solid backing of his band, will perform songs from his first album Rites de passage with the infectious pride, cheeky charisma and irresistible candour that are his hallmark.

  6. Play

    Irish Mythen

    Fourth Stage

    True power inspires awe, and Irish Mythen packs a lot of it – lyrical, musical, and personal – into a relatively small frame. Mythen is a globetrotting troubadour – an Irish-born, contemporary Canadian folk artist who’s been amassing accolades and achievements across several continents over the years.

  7. Play Sold Out

    Rebecca Noelle

    with Kayla Diamond

    Fourth Stage

    Blessed with a searing three octave vocal range, Rebecca Noelle has had the privilege and versatility to try her hand at just about every musical style she wanted to over the years. But it’s her natural affinity for soul, that has set this stunning singer apart.

  8. Play

    Samuele

    Fourth Stage

    A multi-instrumentalist with a flair for songwriting, Samuele presents intimate, socially aware poems in a folk-rock style, with a heavy dose of blues. Whether performing on the guitar accompanied by her musicians, or just on her own as a one-woman orchestra, Samuele offers disarmingly honest shows that skilfully blend song and the spoken word.

  9. Play

    Hillsburn

    with Devarrow

    Fourth Stage

    Hillsburn had a big year in 2016, releasing their debut full-length album, In The Battle Years, and winning a Canadian Folk Music Award for “New/Emerging Artist of the Year” and an East Coast Music Award for “Fans’ Choice Video of the Year.”

  10. Play

    Cédrik St-Onge

    Fourth Stage

    Cédrik St-Onge doesn't look his age. His voice evokes a mature and strange world. He composes in isolation in his native Gaspé. He gives us the summer sounds of a brilliant sun shining over the ocean and of the first snowfall blown in from the sea.

  11. Play

    Port Cities

    Fourth Stage

    A port city is a place where cultures and histories collide, where goods and ideas are imported and absorbed into the local bloodstream. The trio of celebrated Nova Scotian songwriters who now call themselves Port Cities honour that tradition. Their chosen name isn’t just indicative of where they’re from (the harbour hamlet of Cape Breton) but what they do: fuse divergent styles and experiences into a singular roots-rock sound.

  12. Play

    Kelly Sloan is an award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter with pure and clean vocals, which compliment her personal and earnest songwriting. Her musical influences range from folk to country, while fusing elements of vintage '50s and '60s pop rock. Kelly’s unique delivery brings her sound to life with a continuity of vibration, offering a singular statement of heartfelt expression and honesty.

  13. Play

    Stewart Legere

    Fourth Stage

    From Halifax, Nova Scotia. Stewart Legere's folk-pop songs are lovingly composed with vivid storytelling and luscious harmonies, darkened with such sincere delivery and frank lyrics you'll long to sing along and make it alright.

  14. Play

    Bellflower

    Fourth Stage

    The sound of Bellflower, led by singer-songwriter Em Pompa, is one that is rare, rich and powerful. Driven by the soul and ingenuity of eight musicians, it conveys a sense of soft vastness that absorbs the listener, of quiet strength born of an enduring union.
