Performers:
Headwater
Think folk music could use more edge? Think country music could use less electric guitars and more banjos? Think a solid breakfast is an important start to your day? So does Headwater. Their distinctive blend of folk and country roots music, tractor jazz, sounds something like the love children of the Be Good Tanyas and the Old Crow Medicine Show would, after they'd grown up good and strong. Headwater came together in the fall of 2005, initially hoping to be the subject of a reality TV show. But the pilot deal fell through and they've had to resort to selling records and playing gigs to pay the bills. Headwater has rocked the socks off of every venue they've played.

Joanna Chapman-Smith
Joanna's music has been enjoyed all across Canada, and overseas as well. She writes and performs as a singer/songwriter, a concert composer, a dance accompanist, a kid’s entertainer and more. In 2007 she released her first full-length album, Eyre Corvidae (Journey of the Crow Family). The songs in this collection are personal melodies, soothing rhythms and rocking laments. Influenced by a wide variety of traditions, her style is a satisfying blend of sounds. She ties her sound together with a unique vocal style that is sensitive and powerful. Her love of music, and her joy of life come across in her music and her voice. Joanna has a unique vocal style that is sensitive and powerful. It is pure, passionate, and playful - as is her approach to music.

Petunia

Petunia has been swoonin', swingin', croonin', and bringin' 'em home to bars, churches, kitchens, street corners, subway stations ..... wherever the wind has taken him for the past five years. His not-so-secret fanclub grows bigger and bigger each and every week. His 'need to sing' started early in his youth in the small French-speaking town of Ste-Dorothee (near Laval, Quebec). Yodeling quickly became his primary passion and source of inspiration. His 'rousing organic sound' is a blend of musical styles wandering freely from country to jazz to blues to French cabaret to Mexican folk to bluegrass and what's this? Slam, he's driving us right on in to Petunialand proper. While he plays all sorts of the 'old standards consummately, repeat fans call out for his very special originals by name.
