The Lion The Bear The Fox
The Lion, The Bear and The Fox took over 30 years to find each other, but it only took 30 days for Christopher Arruda (lion), Cory Woodward (bear) and Ryan McMahon (fox) to realize they were meant to join their voices as one. The Lion, The Bear, The Fox demonstrate an uncompromising devotion to their chosen craft. A collection of intimate moments lived through audiences every night. Stompy blues, rock grooves and howling, unbridled passion can suddenly give way to hushed folk passages woven together by three whispers speaking as one.

Christina Martin's musical journey has led to extended stays in Austin, Texas, as well as Germany. Christina will perform songs from her highly revered album It'll Be Alright, accompanied by her guitar player, acclaimed Nova Scotia producer and musician Dale Murray (DaleMurray.ca). 'It'll Be Alright,' is Christina's most accomplished and accessible album to date. Martin made a conscious effort not to be bound by the expectations of those who have categorized her in the past. Although she will never shed her more alt-country and Americana influences, 'It'll Be Alright' utilizes far more pop and rock sonic textures, allowing Martin to explore the many sides of her musical personality.
Chris Colepaugh and the Cosmic Crew

The multiple award-winning group, fronted by guitar virtuoso Chris Colepaugh, has spent more than two decades actively touring Canada and the United States, supporting acts including Gov't Mule, The North Mississippi All Stars and Big Sugar. The group's latest effort, RnR, pays homage to the stripped down rock and roll of years past, but with modern touches.
