Jay Gilday
Genre: Aboriginal

As a songwriter, Jay threads together the colours of his own ancestral traditions: Dene spirituals, Irish ballads, Canadian folk and rock. He was raised in a family of accomplished musicians on the tundra of Yellowknife, where his music electrifies its never-ending days and nights. Whether on the main stage of a summer festival or headlining a shadowy cabaret, Jay captivates. He is currently based in Edmonton, Alberta where his considerable fan base has learned what the rest of the country is about to find out: Jay Gilday owns one of the most arresting and important voices in Canadian music today.


Shelley Jones
Genre: Jazz

Vocalist Shelley Jones, guitarist Wes Yaciuk and bassist Wes Caswell have teamed up together for a new musical project called A Touch of Cole, which features the timeless music of Natalie and Nat King Cole. Paying tribute to the unforgettable musical legacy of both father and daughter, A Touch of Cole weaves together a collection of classic "Cole" standards that take the audience on a musical journey that spans from Jazz and Latin, to Soul and R&B. As part of their show, A Touch of Cole also performs timeless standards from artists such as Peggy Lee, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday.
