Jonah Blacksmith
Genre: Folk

Jonah Blacksmith, a seven piece band from northern Denmark has been turning heads in Europe for years. Their powerful stories are told through brilliant songwriting and feature beautiful, soulful harmonies. Although they are distinctly Danish, they have a universal sound that could be described as Americana; embellishing their songs with lap steel guitar, mandolin and no less than two drumkits. The dynamic range of the seven-piece band is wide and goes from conversation-like passages to bombastic orchestral parts with walls of sound and energy. They take Scandinavian folk traditions and turn them into something international.


Post Script
Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Post Script is a relationship, a constant exchange. Considered to be one of Edmonton's hidden gem bands (, the distinct flavour of Post Script is coming out of hiding and steadily finding an audience. Their debut album, If Not For You embodies the traditional Canadian oscillation between urban living and rural retreat, while also capturing the spirit of the nation's linguistic divide. Post Script are young, charming musicians, writing and performing songs like old souls for modern times.
