Check out the Ontario artists performing!


This Toronto-based duo, comprised of songwriters Sam Clark and Yasmine Shelton, will take you through city streets in the hours before the world has woken, or to a corrugated steel home north of the treeline. Their inventiveness shines on Sam's fiddle, and in their intricate harmonies, with Shelton and Clark’s voices wrapping around each other like twin flames in a warm fire.

Cat Clyde

Cat Clyde joined producer Tony Berg in Los Angeles’ famed Sound City Studios to record her latest album Down Rounder in 6 days, with her singing voice spanning an appealing twang to a lovely, plaintive croon. It’s about an exploration and expression of self, patterns in the natural and unnatural world, and the ever changing nature of love and life.
