Tis the season for festival lineup announcements. Manitoulin Country Fest has already announced Michelle Wright, Washboard Union, Meghan Patrick, Chris Buck, Western Swing Authority, Scotty James, The Abrams and Nicole Rayy for their 2017 event. Today they add two more talented Canadian artists….
Mixing soaring vocals, sweet harmonies, and sultry strings, complemented with an infectiously high-energy stage presence is the essence of 2014 Canadian Country Music Association® (CCMA®) Discovery Series winners The Lovelocks, a female roots-country duo comprised of Ali Raney and Zoe Neuman. Celebrated by RocketHub as “crowd funding pioneers in the world of country music in Canada”, this business-savvy duo has raised over $65,000 dollars to date, funding the recording of their debut EP and their new album Born to Love.
Corb Lund is a Canadian roots-country singer/songwriter whose ambitious, stylistically diverse and frequently surprising collection new studio album, Things That Can’t Be Undone (October 9, 2015 on New West Records), helmed by white-hot producer Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton) at his Nashville studio Low Country Sound, marks Lund’s first new studio LP in three years and finds the acclaimed Canadian songwriter pushing his wry observations, darkly biting tales, rural balladry and keen storytelling into musically and thematically new terrain, resulting in the best album of his accomplished career.
Expect another headliner to be announced later this week, we’ll have full details as soon as it’s made public!
