7:30: Coig (Celtic) https://www.coig.ca/
 Còig (Ko-ig) is an electrifying line-up of East Coast musicians. Originally formed as a promotional band for the Celtic Colours International Festival, these award winning performers decided to continue to play as the Còig ensemble whenever possible! Busy solo schedules make Còig appearances quite rare, so don't let your chance to see them pass you by!
8:45:William Prince (roots)
http://www.williamprincemusic.com
William Prince is about to have a very busy summer. Fresh from his Western Canadian Music Awards nominations where he landed nods for Roots Artist of the Year and Aboriginal Artist of the Year for his debut album, Earthly Days, the acclaimed singer/songwriter has a plethora of upcoming shows. He'll hit the Prairie Wind Music Festival in June, Canada Day at The Forks, and play a coveted spot at the Winnipeg Folk Festival in July. He'll also head to New York at the end of July for La Casita Out of Doors Festival at the Lincoln Center, and gear up for harvest/trout quartet of festivals: Harvest Sun Festival, Trout Forest Music Festival, Rainbow Trout Music Festival, and Harvest Moon Festival. William Prince is storytelling singer/songwriter from Peguis First Nation who sidesteps cliches to provoke thought and facilitate discovery. His baritone vocals pay tribute to his late father and his genuine delivery acknowledges the hundreds of hours he's spent on stage. Prince's debut album Earthly Days was produced by long time collaborator Scott Nolan. A recent alumni of the tri-annual Planet IndigenUS Music Festival, Prince was named the 2014 Aboriginal Songwriter of the Year at the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Music Awards (newly named Indigenous Music Awards). His lead single The Carny went to Number 1 on the Sirius XM National Aboriginal Music Countdown Top 40 (Produced by NCI FM). His new single You Got Me is currently climbing the charts.

10:15: Slocan Ramblers (bluegrass)
http://slocanramblers.com
The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in tradition, fearlessly creative and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans have quickly become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene. With a reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and an uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan, The Slocans understand that if you polish up the music, you lose the raw excitement that makes it so vibrant.

On their sophomore album Coffee Creek (2015), The Slocan Ramblers blend lightning fast and devilishly intricate instrumentals with sawdust-thick vocals. In the liner notes, producer Chris Coole breaks it down: “What really impressed me while we were working on this album, was that, while they can pull off the precision and virtuosity that is at the backbone of bluegrass, they understand the power of the fragile moment in music.” On Coffee Creek, they’ve done this by staying true to the rough and rowdy roots of the music.

 
11:30 :Entangados (world/theatrical)
http://entangadospayasos.bandcamp.com/releases
 Entangados (una banda de payaS.O.S.) is a band of musicians and actors who perform as clowns. Since 2004 the band has mixed theatre with genres such as rock, cuarteto, música balkánica, reggae, cumbia, ska, folklore, and tango. Each show is a fiesta musical full of dancing, humour, happiness, and energy. We toured through Mexico at the beginning of 2015 and now we have just arrived in British Columbia, Canada for the summer!
We have existed in Argentina for eleven years!
