Hailing from the coastal haven of Mahone Bay, Jennah Barry is one of Atlantic Canada’s surest sirens. Her undeniable, rosewater voice sets a mood wherein even the hardest truths seem palatable. Moving effortlessly between folk, country and soft rock motifs, Barry’s music sets her at the forefront of a tradition of women making music as strong as it is sentimental.

Casual Cries for Help is an emerging band from Halifax who released their first EP last year. They display an acoustic-pop sound by using catchy melodies, mashups, and traditional east coast harmonies.

Caribou Run is a 6-piece neofolk band based in Mahone Bay. Their smooth harmonies and blend of folk and country makes for a true Nova Scotian sound. Their new release ‘Old Peninsula’ has been nominated for the 2018 Nova Scotia Music Award for Folk Recording of the Year and their debut studio album ‘Something Organic Will Happen’ received the 2017 Nova Scotia Music Award for Blues Recording of the Year
