The Rucksack Willies are a rag-tag group that perform with the relaxed energy of an old-style string band. Their musical stylings, as diverse as the land that shaped them, smash together a simple, rural attitude with big city wit and cunning. therucksackwillies.com
Wilderness of Manitoba is a Toronto-based folk band whose most recent album Island of Echoes has received critical acclaim across the Country and seen them touring through the US. The Toronto Star reviewer says “Think early Joni Mitchelle and the first Crosby, Stills & Nash album and you’ve got one of the prettiest, most wistful albums of the year.” thewildernessofmanitoba.com
The Strumbellas – The Toronto based alt-country six-member band pounds out a bluegrass-inspired indie rock that rivals punk and hardcore for sweat, blood and ruckus. Debuting to rave reviews at Canadian Music Week, CBC called them a “band to watch”.
