PINER - (Antigonish, NS/Kingston, ON):
Set time: 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Piner is a singer-songwriter based in Kingston, Ontario, and Antigonish, Nova Scotia. At heart, she is an old soul. Piner grew up in a community rife with musicians who modeled the idea of putting thoughts to song and singing to anyone who cared to listen. One of Piner’s inspirations is her childhood neighbourhood. Growing up in the environs of Skeleton Park in Kingston, Ontario, Piner experienced the wealth that comes from community, while witnessing the reality of struggle.
THE GERTRUDES - (Kingston, ON):
Set time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm
The Gertrudes are a unique and experimental music collective from Kingston,
Ontario’s Skeleton Park neighbourhood. They sound like an ol’ time saloon party in
deep space. Passengers travelling with this down-home “folkestra” lay down
experimental beds and frolic through a veritable orchestra of instruments. The Gertrudes have included a versatile collective of musicians to produce five full length albums, two EPS, participate in numerous Canadian festivals, and share the stage with artists such Sarah Harmer, Calexico, and Ricky Skaggs.
