Basia Bulat

Basia Bulat brings dance to the hills, rhythm to the wind, and pop to the old country. A lover of the oldies from a young age, this Juno nominated artist has a keen talent for taking traditional styles and infusing them with an electric spark. For evidence, just listen to her belting vocals that teeter on the edge of emotional break but never falter, or to the confidence the multi-instrumentalist shows in jumping between guitar, ukulele, piano and autoharp. At once pastoral and whimsical, introspective and booming, a commune in nature with this indie-folk powerhouse might just be perfect.

Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar

Samantha Martin’s whiskey soaked voice is a rare phenomena, with the kind of spine-tingling urgency only heard before in your Joplins or your Williamses. Devoting this talent to roots country, southern blues. and gospel, Martin has powered through a variety of soulful projects on the path to her current primal work with Delta Sugar; a full-band effort full of chants, claps, and stomps. The music is paired down but surprisingly immense, a bit angry and longing, and entirely revelatory.

Hideen Roots Collective

With each member having performed or been involved with R&S in the past, it’s hard not to see Hidden Roots Collective’s arrival at this year’s festival as the triumphant return of our own Northern dream team. Brigitte Lebel, Annie Sumi, Rose-Erin Stokes and Holly Cunningham formed the collective to showcase and garnish each other’s solo material, providing spellbinding harmony and accompaniment to each artist’s unique sound and style.

Quantum Tangle

Greyson Gritt and Tiffany Ayalik blend their Ojibway, Metis, and Inuit backgrounds and personal musical tastes into a combination of throat singing, storytelling, rock, and soul to create a sound that has a unique identity of its own. Scenes from the old-world and the modern blend as the Yellowknife residents weave their tales; with Ayalik consummately spinning stories infused with Gritt’s raw rock spirit.
