Ellen Froese

Ellen Froese

Hailing from a dairy farm in the heart of Saskatchewan, young folk singer Ellen Froese has swiftly made her presence known in the Canadian music scene. As a folk artist performing solo and also with her rockin’ back-up band, the Hot Toddies, as well as an original member of successful bluegrass/folk group In With The Old, Froese has balanced multiple projects for the last few years. Whether performing a folk traditional, a rock 'n' roll classic, or her own compositions, Froese handles it with an air of authenticity – all tempered with a healthy dose of humour and self-deprecation.

2019 brought both Canadian and German ‘Youngbloods’ tours through Germany’s DevilDuck Records. With a combined four albums already under her belt, as well as two 'Best Solo Act' awards through the Planet S Best of Saskatoon contest (2019 & 2020) and two Saskatchewan Music Award nominations for ‘Folk/Roots Artist of the Year’ (2018 & 2020), Froese released her fifth album on November 1st, 2019 - 'Fightin' Words' - her first backed by the Hot Toddies.

The Garrys

The Garrys

The Garrys are a trio of sisters from the coldest part of the landlocked Canadian prairies.
Formed in the spring of 2015, The Garrys use layered 3-part blood harmonies, hazy sun-bleached melodies, classic lo-fi guitar tones, and syncopated surf beats to create a unique “doom-wop” sound, dripping with dark nostalgia and touched by psychedelic dread. Their music is likely to leave you with an urge to do the Watusi, bittersweet thoughts about slow-dancing with your middle school crush, or a nagging feeling that it’s not quite safe to go back into the water.

Kacy and Clayton

Kacy and Clayton

The music Kacy and Clayton make is inextricable from where they grew up. They sing about the kind of people you’d find in Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan (population very few). The hills, barns and remoteness of the area are in these songs, with a bittersweet acknowledgement that this music has taken them far from home.

Kacy Anderson and Clayton Linthicum’s new album Carrying On follows the international acclaim for their previous records Strange Country (which Q magazine called, “A beautiful album that nudges a classic past into a brave future.”) and 2017’s The Siren’s Song (described by Uncut as “Ageless and beguiling. A classic record for this or any other time.”)

Their sound is equal parts homespun, coming from a family and community where playing music is an ever present part of social gatherings, and the rare country, blues and English folk rock these second cousins obsess over and collect. For Carrying On, Clayton cites as influences: Bobbie Gentry’s The Delta Sweete, Hoyt Axton's My Griffin Is Gone, Cajun fiddle music, and the steel guitar of Ralph Mooney who played on many of the records that defined the Bakersfield country music scene of the 1950s. Sixties psych has also woven its way into these new songs; Kacy enjoys telling people that they live 250km from the mental hospital that coined the term ‘psychedelic’.

The program starts at 7:30, so get your tickets, make some snacks and let us bring the show to you!
