    Rob Lutes

    with special guests Sin and Swoon

    Fourth Stage

    On his seventh album, acclaimed Canadian songwriter Rob Lutes does what he has done for years: kicks up a little dust, wades into some deep waters and tackles the realities of the world with depth, humour and a unique musical style. Situated at the intersection of the blues, folk, Americana and contemporary singer-songwriter genres, Walk in the Dark is an exquisite collection of songs that highlight Lutes’s unmistakable voice and literary writing style.

  2. Dana Sipos

    Fourth Stage

    Dana Sipos' hypnotic, tenderly skewed songs are filled with a wild wind. Described as a "consummate singer and songwriter with a wholly unique sound" by No Depression, Sipos’ rhythmic fingerstyle guitar playing is textured and immersive, and her true strength lies as a songwriter.

    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.

    Sam Harvey

    Fourth Stage

    Amanda Lowe

    Born in Sri Lanka, raised on Prince Edward Island and now residing in Ottawa, ON - Amanda Lowe Warnakulasuriya is a multi-lingual singer-songwriter that writes music that can be sweet, heartbreaking, and enchanting. With just her voice, her guitar, a pinch of reverb, and awkward wit she creates a warm inclusive vibe, highlighting life’s dark, cloudy and sunny days

    Walking in Neil Young and Nick Drake’s footsteps, Charles-Antoine's songs aim to be like short films, a lucid and intimate look at human relationships. His universe is one of contrasts, where solitude meets the crowd and cities vanish into country landscapes.  In search of simplicity, his delicate and personal songs are pure and bare of any artifice.  Sensitive to the core, the artist rises up on stage, where his voice never falters from its goal.
