-Hailing from a profoundly musical family in St. Peter’s, Cape Breton, Roger Stone comes by his talent honestly. Stone’s father was a driving force in the Island’s fiddle culture and a music teacher. As a child, Stone was exposed to the playing styles of many different musicians in addition to being influenced by bluegrass, the Beatles, James Taylor and Bob Marley. Equally accomplished at both guitar and 5-string banjo, Stone filled in for various McGinty members over the years and volunteered to join the band permanently following John Ferguson’s passing in 2012.

-Eastbound, a husband and wife duo made up of Krista and Jay Luddington were brought together through their love of music. With their beautifully in-sync harmonies and wide range of songs and genres, from East Coast Celtic Folk to Country and everything in between, you are sure to be kept entertained at one of their shows. The duo has played from Coast to Coast together, and their shared passion continues to guide them in ways they never could have imagined. Eastbound is expected to release their debut album in the fall, showcasing their original music and they are very excited to share them with you!

-Gu Smior, translating from Gaelic to English as ‘To the Marrow’ is a dynamic musical duo comprised of Gaelic speakers Hannah Krebs and Lewis MacKinnon. Performing Gaelic songs, tunes and dance, Gu Smior provides a unique approach to sharing Nova Scotia’s Gaelic language and culture as Hannah and Lewis interact on stage through the medium of Gaelic. Knowledgeable, informed and lively, Gu Smior is a new approach to a genre that is rich in song and music. With great musicality, complimentary unison choruses and genuine energy and passion, Gu Smior makes any festival or musical event a true language-based cultural experience, audience friendly and memorable.
