About the acts:
Jumpin Joel Flash & The Magic Machine
The Magic Machine is exactly what you’re looking for.
The gang is a made up of a silly potpourri of creative minds – resulting in a sweet mix of folk and southern jam featuring opera-rock vocals, bouncy rhythms, musical theatre harmonies, and the occasional rain stick interlude.
We create surprisingly hummable, temptingly strummable original tunes composed and performed in a manner that it is certain to make you smile. Our on-stage antics and comedy bits will make you laugh. Our lyrics will make your heart skip a beat. Our finale will make you a lifetime fan.
The Artichoke Hearts
Singer-songwriter Caitlin Dolan joins forces with pianist Kim Jackson and violinist Jessie Lyon in this Ottawa-based folk trio. Conquer then Divide is the product of ten years of songwriting – a collection of honest reflections, embracing vulnerability and independence.
A Leverage For Mountains
Based out of Val-des-Monts, Quebec, A Leverage For Mountains is Nick Loyer and Jay Trepanier. It’s harmonies, from the most compelling sounds to the most captivating notes, a universe full of emotions and sincerity that lives in the moment and opens the doors and windows of your memory.
A Leverage For Mountains is more than a group: it’s family, friends, it’s the love of music.
