French Canadian French Canadian Musicians: Ariko (The Lefaive Family)

The party ignites when ARIKO takes the stage! Homegrown in Lafontaine, Ontario, this family band features the rich vocal harmonies and dynamic fiddle stylings of the Lefaive sisters. Rooted in traditional French-Canadian music, Ariko’s repertoire is coloured by zydeco, bluegrass, and popular genres. Their unique arrangements of traditional songs, original compositions and fiddle tunes are guaranteed to keep your toes tapping.

Le party prend feu dès qu’ARIKO embarque sur scène ! Originaire de Lafontaine, Ontario, ce groupe de famille fait rayonner les harmonies veloutées et les violons fougueux des sœurs Lefaive. Enraciné dans le style folklorique canadien-français, le répertoire d’Ariko est composé d’arrangements uniques de chansons à répondre, de compositions originales et de reels au violon qui vous feront taper du pied.

Bassist and Vocalist: Chas Laurie

While you can often find Chas Laurie performing with Kitty and the Boyz at Midland's Boathouse Eatery, this talented musician has played with an incredible assortment of artists and bands in the Greater Toronto Area. Chas toured Canada with Wild T and The Spirit, and Kenny Maclean. He once worked a 4 month stint in Dubai with Robbie Rae, and has opened for Suzi Quatro, Chaka Kahn and Deep Purple!


Georgian Bay Songbird: Emma Reynolds

Anyone spending summers around Georgian Bay will know songstress Emma Reynolds. A passionate musician, singer, dancer and actor, you can catch her performing at local special events and festivals. If you haven't seen her yet - don't delay. She's just released her first album, "No Looking Back" and this Sheridan College student is going places!

We are thrilled to have her join us at Wye Marsh for this special fundraising event.


Award-winning Artist: Nick Howell

Nick Howell is an award winning Rock artist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer of the best selling albums Traveller and We Will Go On. Working from his secret studio - a cabin located somewhere in the woods of Ontario - he hand crafts Rock & Roll, and performs wild concerts which are unlike anything rock audiences have experienced. Nick has committed his life to bringing people together worldwide through the power of music, and creating art to show that "Anything that can be imagined is possible."


Ukulele Queens: Northern Mockingbirds

These wonderful women with their ukuleles will take you on a trip down memory lane. From "Sentimental Journey" to "Da-doo-ron-ron", "After the Goldrush" and "Eight Days a Week", they'll have us all "Happy Together" at Wye Marsh.
