The Chimney Swallows are songwriters
Raghu Lokanathan and Corwin Fox.Their collaboration began with a series of gigs on
the library picket lines in 2007. Over the half dozen tours together in the
years that followed, they came to feel that something had taken shape worth
giving a name to- The Chimney Swallows. They aim to set songs free to be all
they can be, from art to protest to mischief to prayer.
Blackthorn are a Vancouver based Celtic
folk group whose repertoire celebrates the traditional music of Ireland and
Scotland. From lively jigs and reels to heart-wrenching airs and ballads,
savour the melodies and intricately woven harmonies that bring this music to
life in a new way, mixed with humour and above all else, fun.
Vancouver CD release of WRAP ME IN GOLD the
debut recording of SIX AT THE
which is, as the name might not suggest, a trio. Here the powerful,
sweet and moving voices of well-known Vancouver singers Lynn McGown and Michael
Pratt are accompanied on Hang by David Kaetz, resulting in an altogether fresh
take on contemporary compositions and traditional folksongs.
Fraser Union (Roger Holdstock, Henk Piket,
Barry Truter) are sometimes introduced as "The Kings of Chorus".
They've been making music for decades, be it acapella or accompanied by guitars, mandolins,
dobro and harmonica.Their repertoire incorporates a rich stew of BC and
Canadian "songs that tell stories"
The Wakers play traditional Irish music
with passion and heartfelt wonder.
Their performance of lively jigs, reels, hornpipes, polkas, & waltzes combined with songs and shanties
is guaranteed to get your toes tapping! Instruments include fiddle, bodhran,
guitar, Irish flutes and whistles. The 'Wakers' were a featured band at Irish
House 2010 during the Olympics. And the Princeton Traditional Music Festival.
Tarkin takes North American folk traditions from across the spectrum and blends them together to create a sound that's folk music with a West Coast flair
With six voices and over a dozen different instruments at hand, Tarkin goes from old-time to country swing
to ceilidh band as the instruments get passed around the circle.
They've been described as "a bunch of multi-instrumentalist gypsies, roving over the mountains of the West Coast.".
