We’ve got a fantastic lineup of artists that we’re bringing in for our May show!
Sarah Beatty will be arriving in Morrisburg from Hamilton. She possesses a songbird’s voice and a wry wit, and deftly occupies the space between blues, jazz, country, and roots. Her music shines brightly with dynamic vocals, imaginative lyrics, and sing-song melodies. Her debut CD, Black Gramophone, was released in 2012 and she’s been touring across the country since then, sharing stages with Brent Titcomb, Lori Yates, Shawn William Clarke, Oh My Darling and more!

Lindsey Walker's music is a haunting blend of soulful melodies, driving guitar riffs and rich lyrics. Nominated for a 2013 Edmonton Music Award, Lindsey has been hard at work touring Western Canada since the release of her debut album Our Glory and is currently on tour in Eastern Canada with Alex Vissia. Lindsey's lyrics come straight from the heart and may make you laugh out loud, tear up, and even hug your neighbour. Visit Lindsey's website here.
Alex Vissia's songs are grown from folksy prairie roots, distilled until clear, and carefully Rock-filtered to let just the right amount of grit back in. Growing up in the prairies of Alberta, Alex has shared stages with artists such as Del Barber, Lindi Ortega, Whitehorse, and more. Based in Edmonton, she’s been building an audience around Western Canadian coffee shops, music clubs and festival stages since her debut album , A Lot Less Gold, was released in 2011.

The Rhondas are former members of the band Haggis: Nicholas Seguin, Jeff Barker and Brent Santin. Theirs is a pop and folk-based sound with a strong Celtic backbone - get ready for a lot of instrumentation with fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bodhran and great foot-stomping fun!
Paul Harrison is a Cornwall native with a great ear for a melody, beautiful guitar chops and a singer-songrwriter’s flair for the unexpected. We’re delighted to be welcoming him to the St. Lawrence Acoustic Stage!
Julie Corrigan was born and raised in the Ottawa Valley and grew up on a farm along the Ottawa River. She’s a soulful, country, pop, roots, singer/songwriter and she’s getting set to release her first full length CD, The Language in which she taps into the romantic whispers of her rural roots, including stories of heartache, loss, tragedy, and a longing for going home.

The Juno-nominated duo of Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac has sold-out venues across North America and Europe, had the prestigious distinction of touring with Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe, and has shared stages with contemporaries such as Chantal Kreviazuk, Ron Sexsmith and The Indigo Girls. Madison Violet won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for their track “The Ransom” from their 2009 CD No Fool for Trying and also took home the 2009 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year, and were nominated for multiple East Coast Music Awards and a 2010 JUNO Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year. They followed that in 2011 with the critically acclaimed CD The Good in Goodbye.
Having spent last winter in studio recording their new record, Madison Violet is hitting the road for the rest of 2014 and 2015 performing new material for fans all over Canada, Spain, UK, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Influenced by pop, electro, disco and folk, the new songs are a fresh direction for MacIsaac and MacEachearn, they have a batch of infectious songs that will speak to new audiences while showcasing the unique voices and amazing musicianship their fan base has grown to love. Our Morrisburg audience will be amongst the first to hear Madison Violet’s new sound – we could not be more excited to have Brenley and Lisa back at our Stage to help us close out our 2014/15 Season!
