May 29 TBA

Jun 6 TBA

Jun 13 Abigail Lapell is a Canadian folk noir singer-songwriter. Drawing from traditional folk, indie and punk rock influences, her music is at once fresh and familiar—intuitive melodies, sparse-plucked guitar and a voice like autumn smoke. 

Jun 20 Danielle Allard is a musician, mentor, and community builder hailing from the nation’s capital. One of the region’s favorite singer-songwriters, Allard’s tender voice and her combination of jazz, folk, pop, and blues will leave you pleasantly astounded.

Jun 27 Julie Corrigan Born and raised in the Ottawa Valley, Julie Corrigan is a soulful, country, pop, roots, singer/songwriter hailing from the small town of Shawville Quebec. Julie is on the heels of releasing her first full length album The Language, recorded in Ottawa at Little Bullhorn Studios with producer Dave Draves (Kathleen Edwards, Howe Gelb).

Jul 04 Sarah Elizabeth sings songs about lemons, apples, wanderlust, and her grandparents. Sometimes there's a glockenspiel or a ukulele thrown in the mix... and there's always a chance to singalong.

Aug 08 Melanie Peterson is blessed with a voice that suggests an early Joni Mitchell, Melanie Peterson, a Saskatoon born, Toronto based, singer and songwriter has quietly become one of the brightest lights on the Toronto folk music scene.
