Four Favorites Added to the Lineup
PEI singer-songwriter Catherine MacLellan has a pure, expressive voice and a talent for turning out well-crafted, heartfelt songs. Her recording The Raven’s Sun was named Contemporary Album of the Year at the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards. As the daughter of Gene MacLellan, who wrote Snowbird, music is in her blood, and her soul.
Nova Scotia native Dave Gunning writes songs of hardship and hope that are both lyrical and uncompromising. The Juno Award nominee sings with an open and honest style that has gained him a devoted following over his 20-year career as well as winning him the respect of Canada’s foremost songwriters and folk musicians.
Whether they’re cranking out a wailing blues or delivering something in a tub-thumping traditional style, Ken Whiteley and the Beulah Band are entertainers to the core. Songwriter Whiteley draws heavily on traditional North American music for his inspiration and has won numerous honours, including a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Mariposa Folk Festival.
Philadelphia-born Vance Gilbert writes songs that are brave and honest, dealing with themes of isolation, loss and love, and delivers them in a voice of thrilling depth and range. Between songs, he offers amusing observations on life and music. He’s a unique performer who’s often unconventional but never disappointing.
