Seasoned songwriter and storyteller Shiloh Lindsey is a most unique character in Canadian music. Hard-raised on a ranch in south central Alberta, based for many years out of Vancouver, and most recently returned from a residence in Halifax, she pairs open country authenticity with big city sensibilities, for a complex blend of prairie, mountain and coastal textures. Painstakingly documenting the triumphs and failures of life and love, her honest words and spine-tingling melodies pull the listener in close to rest their ears against the comforting heartbeat of each song she sings. http://shilohlindsey.ca/
On her way back home to Vancouver from a cross Canada tour to promote Bloomfield & Isleville (EP 2016). Featuring songs built in and around a house in Halifax on the cross streets of Bloomfield & Isleville, Shiloh takes on challenging universal themes of homesickness, history, and self-improvement with heart rendering commonality.
With local Edmonton band The Misery Mountain Boys! An acoustic ensemble, playing a variety of eclectic roots music. With strong musicianship, and drawing on a diverse influence from swing, bluegrass, gypsy jazz, reggae, and funk, the groups performance is high-energy and interactive, playful yet unpredictable. The roots of the Misery Mountain Boys lie on the banks of the mighty Peace River, in small-town Northern Alberta where guitarist Steve Gevenich and mandolinist Dom Golec grew up sharing and creating music together, discovering their own sound and style for over a decade. Since 2011 the group has been based out of Edmonton, Alberta and has continuously evolved through their passion for playing music together. Their second EP ‘Long Gone Cat Daddy’ was released in December 2015 and puts a unique emphases on acoustic rhythm and groove. - See more at: http://www.miserymountainboys.com/band_bio/#sthash.X8wug3fR.dpuf
