JowiPhoto-webThe Festival opens with a concert featuring multiple award-winning writer, broadcaster, and cultural entrepreneur, Jowi Taylor and his internationally acclaimed project Six String Nation. Conceived in 1995, Six String Nation took eleven years to bring to life. Centred around a single acoustic guitar – nicknamed Voyageur and built from over sixty pieces of Canadian history representing different cultures, communities and characters from every part of the country – the project combines Jowi’s fascinations with music, media, community engagement, and the dynamics of Canadian history and multicultural identity. A mingling of stories and music, the concert features Jowi’s acclaimed performance, as well as contemporary guitarist Paul Landsberg playing Voyageur and teasers from our featured storytellers that will set the stage for the weekend.

Trio Voyage PromoRounding out the concert are sets from beloved local Paul Landsbergfavourites Trio Voyage and Lalin. An acoustic trio of master musicians Paul Landsberg, Doug Stephenson, and Don Macdonald, Trio Voyage interprets music from around the world; a mix of tradition and improvisation, each performance is a unique experience for the listeners and performers. Trio Voyage is joined by Allison Girvan and Laura Landsberg. As a special treat, the evening also features Allison Girvan’s choir Lalin. Composed of the older members of Corazon, Lalin awes listeners with their close harmonies and complex arrangements.Laura Landsberg
