Few are more conscious in their journey through Appalachian histories and the Canadian musical landscape than Kaia. Born in Montreal, Kaia has lived Winnipeg, Wakefield and, most recently, West Virginia, she now resides in Toronto. Her old-time banjo-picking skills, deft arrangements, and songwriting abilities have landed her in the spotlight in North America and the UK, garnering critical acclaim from outlets such as Rolling Stone, CBC Music and The Roots Music Report. Often praised for her capacity to sound new and old at once, Kaia anchors her music the space where tradition and innovation intersect.
Al Tuck is a genre-hopping, songwriter-troubadour, born and based in Canada’s smallest province, picturesque Prince Edward Island. If Canada had an official “songwriter’s songwriter” position, Al Tuck would be a strong contender for the role. Grammy-winning singer Feist has described him as a living legend in our midst. Juno-winners Joel Plaskett and Old Man Luedecke have trumpeted him as a major formative influence. Broken Social Scene’s Jason Collett dubbed him the greatest songwriter of his generation.
