Based in Montreal, David Simard has been getting some due attention.

His name appeared on the Montreal Mirror Magazine‘s list for “Best Country/Folk Act 2009” and, more recently, “Best Singer/Songwriter 2010.”

Having played alongside some Canadian festival favourites like Mark Berube and the Patriotic Few, Twilight Hotel, Fish & Bird, Old Man Luedecke, and Ladies of the Canyon, Simard is steadily singing his way into the heart of the country

With loop pedal, fiddle and voice, Hannah Epperson creates intricate and moving musical landscapes.

As a talented collaborative artist, she’s been on the road and performed and recorded with Canada’s Miss Emily Brown, James Lamb, and Top Less Gay Love Tekno Party, to name a few.  

Halloween Costume Party — Belle Plaine

@ Cedar Creek Café, Oct. 29. Music from 7:30-9:30 pm Cover by donation.

“The voice of Melanie Hankewich (a.k.a. Belle Plaine) is supple, sultry and hypnotizing.  The showcase of her performance, it carries listeners through the prairie landscape, stopping for a beer or whiskey at a small-town bar or two along the way. 

The stunning cadence of her voice paired with her poetic lyrics gives new meaning to the phrase “Lullabies to Paralyze.”

Fresh from an exciting summer performing at the Regina Folk Festival and elsewhere in the province, Belle Plaine is hitting her stride.  Keep your eyes peeled for a performance soon.”

— Craig Shutko, Prairie Dog Magazine

Food and drink specials, Halloween treats for kids, prizes for costume categories (TBA) from Nelson Brewing Company.
