Lynn Miles is an acclaimed Canadian roots rock singer/songwriter known for her warm, plaintive singing and often melancholy muse. Her 1996 release, Slightly Haunted, landed atop many critics’ year-end lists. Unravel, released in 2001, netted her a Juno Award for Best Roots & Traditional Album of the Year. Love Sweet Love received another Juno nomination. Black Flowers, Vols, 1–2 was reissued as a two-disc set in 2009. Lynn won the 2011 Canadian Folk Music Award for English Songwriter of the Year for Fall For Beauty. Downpour, her seventh studio album, was released in 2013.

Keith will perform with Lynn at her Nick concert.

Milkwood Dreamers

Milkwood Dreamers

The Milkwood Dreamers’ debut album, Hellfire and Bone, features duets clear as mountain water. He was writing music north of the Arctic Circle. She was strumming old Hank Williams songs at the kitchen table. Somehow they ended up at the same backyard jam in Calgary. Next thing you know he got down on one knee and offered up a cherry sunburst guitar instead of a wed- ding ring. Mel and Marti Smith are known for their harmonies that fit like a glove, flinty and sweet as honey. Marti’s won praise for her iridescent, pearly tones that speak of parched but beautiful landscapes.
