** Fronted by partners Alex Millaire and Kaitlin Milroy, Ottawa-based Moonfruits are makers of art-folk bilingue. In a forest of banjo, guitar, kalimba and glockenspiel, their voices burrow and soar. Four-time 2019 Trille Or nominees, Moonfruits have toured Canada coast to coast. Their début full-length Ste-Quequepart (2017) \saint-kehk-pahr or Saint Somewhere\ is an elaborate small town fiction that explores the faces of gentrification, isolation and community. moonfruits.ca

Micah Barnes At The Sands”: Former Nylons frontman Micah Barnes recreates a night in the legendary Las Vegas showroom! Pianist Patrick Hewan will be joining Micah.

“Barnes plans to go from small New York clubs to to glitzy strip showrooms in an effort to capture the sound of vintage Las Vegas. Considering how successful he was at injecting the spirit of a city into his current collection (New York Stories) the next should have you feeling like you’ve just caught aces at The Sands!” Canadian Musician.
