The Jones Effect opening
A slight change of plans - our originally-scheduled group (Ben Miller & Anita McDonald from the east coast) unfortunately had to cancel. But this gives us a chance to bring back the award-winning duo from Edmonton, 100 Mile House! They've been busy, with their fourth CD out (Hiraeth) and lots of performing.
Winners of the Edmonton Folk Music Festival Emerging Artists Award and
the 2016 All-Albertan Song Contest, 100 Mile House have shared their
unique brand of transatlantic folk at some of Canada’s biggest
festivals. Their beautiful harmonies, rich arrangements and captivating
lyrics have led to awards and nominations across Canada as well as radio
play across the globe.
