About our entertainers:

Kirsten Jones - The Mad Mile

“Smooth-as-buckwheat-honey vocals…a bonfide comparison to Emmylou Harris is not out of order…”   - Eric Thom, Exclaim Magazine

Nominated for the Canadian Country Music Association’s Roots Artist of the Year, Jones’ subtly melancholic songs include warm campfire-like toe-tappers, barn burners, and personal storytellers that breathe deep from the traditions of her Americana heroes like The Jayhawks and Patty Griffin.  

With her heartbreakingly lovely vocals and soaring harmonies, she comfortably walks the line between country and folk.


Singer songwriter Clela Errington.

“Much like Eva Cassidy, when you hear Clela sing for the first time, you wonder where this voice has been all your life, and want to hear more.” – Bob Mersereau, CBC Radio

Singer songwriter Clela Errington has a voice that is timeless and true, a vibrant blend of folk and jazz creates the perfect vehicle for her intimate and dynamic vocal delivery.

She is an accomplished instrumentalist, playing guitar, harmonica and ukulele. Her compelling, unaffected stage presence and easy smile promise something exceptional, and Clela delivers.
