We’re all in for a real treat this night.  The Breakman bring to the stage their own pure and raw brand of folk and their renowned vocal harmonies.  The Breakmen have fast become a sharply focused roots music outfit that owes as much to The Band and Blue Rodeo as it does to John Hartford and Bill Monroe.

With a new approach to songwriting and an effort to create something lasting, The Breakmen are ploughing new and fertile ground in the dry and dusty fields of the Canadian Folk Music Scene. 

The wonderful Ty West, Kate Moran and Jesse Lee will start the evening off right with their unique, funky, folky acoustic tunes.
