Danny Michel

Danny Michel

Let’s start by contemplating what genre we can file Danny under: rock/pop, singer-songwriter, folk, world, even classical. His thoughtful lyrics and earnest performances have earned him nominations for three Juno awards, The Polaris Prize, and The CBC’s “Heart Of Gold.” Danny’s hopeful songs find a home in everyone’s heart. In 2011, he relocated to Belize and made a recording with the Garifuna Collective, Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me, called by Billboard “One of the finest musical works of our time.” Danny’s most recent project Khlebnikov was recorded aboard the legendary Soviet-era Russian ice-breaker, Kapitan Khlebnikov, during an 18-day arctic expedition through the Northwest Passage. His recordings were arranged for brass and strings. The result is a suite of atmospheric and haunting songs about the Arctic, our planet and our place in it. Khlebnikov received two 2017 Canadian Folk Music Awards for Producer and Pushing the Boundaries.

Erin Kay

Erin Kay

On her debut EP Into the Light Erin’s voice was likened to “honey and tabasco, swirled in a cloud of smoke.” Often touring with the Ken Stead band, Erin is preparing to release her anticipated sophomore album Silver & Gold. Erin’s not afraid of emotions and connects deeply to her songs and audiences, touching on topics about parenthood, love, loss and silver linings. Her new album speaks about transitions away from abusive relationships,
single motherhood, finding love and all the feelings that come in between. At her Nick performance Erin will be accompanied by Kyle Mosiuk on electric guitar.
