Often described as a “writer’s writer”, Susan Crowe is one of Canada’s most respected singer songwriters in the folk genre. At once complex, challenging and accessible, Susan’s intelligent and moving songs have captivated audiences and reviewers from coast to coast, continent to continent. She possesses, in the words of Britain’s Folk Roots magazine, “that rare ability of crafting a lyric that bears scrutiny on its own terms.” That rare ability has earned her two Juno nominations, and nominations from both the West Coast and East Coast Music Awards. www.susancrowe.com

Dennis Ellsworth



Dennis Ellsworth is a prolific songwriter. Lately he’s gotten into rhythm of writing, recording and releasing
an album a year. In between records, he travels around the planet singing songs characterized by a kind
of dark optimism that’s informed by early influences such as Roy Orbison, Neil Diamond and Kris Kristofferson. He won 2 Music PEI awards this year – Roots Contemporary Recording and Male Solo Recording of the Year.


Born into the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Lindy Vopnfjörd started his music career early. By four,
he was singing cautionary songs about nuclear war and traveling around with his musician parents and
extended family in a bus. The digital release of his most recent album, his career seventh, called Young
Waverer was on February 26, 2013. It is a soaring landscape of stream of consciousness stories about love and loss, alongside unique tales about his upbringing on icy Lake Winnipeg.
