Hosted by Aly Marguerite & Old Time Honey
Jul 31 Marie Hamilton is guided by a love of old melodies and song, Marie explores the spaces between her many (36) strings. A native Vermonter living in Montréal, she'll be joined on stage by her harp.
Aug 7 Lehzer hails from the west but was grew up in the east, playing homegrown country music and filling it all in with sweet banjo licks
Aug  14 Hunter McLean hails from the backwoods of Northern B.C. All her songs are semi-fictional autobiographical stories about her interactions with people and animals.
Aug 21 Roxanne Potvin, the Beatles made her want to write songs, the Blues made her want to rock the guitar, so she did that for a while, got a record deal, moved to Toronto, toured Canada, Europe and a bit of the US, got to meet and play with some of her heroes (!!). Few years later, moved to Montreal to write songs. Still doing that. Still rocking out occasionally too. She's working on her fifth album.
Sept 18 Laurence Made Me Cry is folk pop songstress Jo Whitby currently
hailing from the tenement lined streets of Glasgow, Scotland. There’s
an odd familiarity about the music of Laurence Made Me Cry, her songs
bring with them a sense of timelessness and warmth like meeting up
with an old friend.
Sep 25 Lynn Jackson ten years and six albums into her recording career, the one constant fans have come to expect is top notch songwriting and that voice.
