100 MILE HOUSE Winners of the Emerging Artist Award at the 2014 Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Edmonton-based husband and wife duo Peter Stone and Denise MacKay have shared their unique brand of original transatlantic folk at shows and festivals near and far. Their beautiful harmonies, rich arrangements and captivating lyrics make their sound truly distinctive. The new 100 mile house release, Wait With Me, is their third full-length album, packed with the lyrically driven roots tunes that gained this band a devoted following in the Canadian music scene and beyond. Debuting at No.1 on CKUA across Alberta, the album is nominated for four Edmonton Music Awards, a WCMA for ‘Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year’, shortlisted for the Edmonton Music Prize and the song ‘London’ won the coveted Calgary Folk Festival Songwriting Contest, the second time the band has walked away with the prize. This haunting and highly personal song collection is the follow-up to hollow ponds, their award-winning 2011 release. www.100milehouse.co.uk
SEAN BURNS DUO “If you need me, I’ll be in Wisconsin,” sings Sean Burns, but he's just as likely to be found in Calgary or Ottawa, Chicago or Denver. Touring relentlessly from one end of Canada to the other and now branching into the United States, Winnipeg-based singer/songwriter Sean Burns taps into the bittersweet spirit of the road and then spins it his way with a blend of electric and acoustic guitars and a soulful harmonica.Sean's music will resonate with fans of Americana, Folk, Country and Blues alike. The songs, which hint at such influences as Steve Earle, Bob Dylan, and Johnny Cash, capture the grittiness of the road in the stark, down-to-earth style of an authentic storyteller. www.seanburns.ca
