Folk singer/songwriter Dave Allen was born and raised in Barrie, Ontario. He was exposed to an eclectic collection of music at a young age, from Bowie to Dylan, Joan Armatrading to Supertramp and The Beatles. These influences helped to shape the all-embracing qualities of his own song craft. Growing up in a musical family, Dave was introduced to improvised melody and performance in jamming pop & folk songs of the 60’s and 70s with his mother, father and younger sister. These jams typically happened at family gatherings and campfires to small crowds of friends and family around Southern Ontario. It was these musical moments that ignited Dave’s ambition for songwriting and creative work. Dave was the lead singer-songwriter in the rock n’ soul band Stonetrotter who had released their full length album ‘Stonetrotter’ in 2015. You can find Dave performing solo or with his Family band in venues across Ontario. Dave’s debut full-length record is set to be released in 2017.Visit Artist Website

Cindy & Scott
Cindy McCredie & Scott Maybee are 2/4th's of Northumberland County's WICKLOW. Both accomplished musicians and vocalists with years of combined experience under their belts, the duo started performing as a "spin off" to their country / rock band with a focus on smaller, more intimate settings. Their set list consists of mainly cover songs, some of which are wider known classics from such acts as CCR, Van Morrison and Lynyrd Skynyrd, but they also branch off into modern indie folk with songs from the likes of Shakey Graves and Dan Mangan. Cindy & Scott also stay close to their Canadian roots by keeping a steady set of Canadian tunes from the likes of Big Sugar, Spirit of the West and The Trews to name a few. Expect to hear something unexpected at their live shows...and yup, lot's of banjo!!Visit Artist Website

Doug is a veteran of the pub and folk festival circuits since the late 1970’s. He has a smooth articulate guitar style that has seasoned over time. A stickler for sound he tries to envelope the audience in a warm blanket of sound. At a recent gig a fellow musician described it as big cup of sonic creamy hot chocolate. Come relax and drink it in.
Doug also spends much of his time in recording studios producing and playing guitars on various projects. He plays a wide variety of covers sprinkled with his own songs. His music sits in the James Taylor/Paul Simon sonic pocket.
