GORD SINCLAIR - (Kingston, ON):
Set time: 8:30pm - 10:00pm
There are successful musicians, and then there is Gord Sinclair, best-known as bassist with widely fêted Canuck rock icons The Tragically Hip and, since that band’s unfortunate and untimely end, as an electrifying singer-songwriter in his own right and one wholly committed to spreading the gospel of live performance far and wide. In Continental Drift, Sinclair’s toweringly accomplished second solo album, finds the bassist-cum-lead singer working alongside frequent collaborator James McKenty — who also mixed, mastered, and added guitar and vocals — as well as drummer Jeff Halischuk.
JULIA FINNEGAN - (Kingston, ON):
Set time: 7:30pm - 8:10pm
Indie-folk singer-songwriter, Julia Finnegan, identifies as a storyteller first; finding catharsis in words and their ability to connect with others in an intimate way. Based in Kingston, Finnegan was drawn to music at an early age and has been performing for audiences across Ontario for the better part of the last 10 years. She is inspired by folk cornerstones like Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell as well as contemporary artists like Andy Shauf, Sarah Harmer and Phoebe Bridgers. At the height of the pandemic, Finnegan released her debut full-length record Listen to the Wallflowers.
