Marie Avery
has been described as ‘a voice that cuts through the night like a dangerous yet delicate switchblade’. Having just released her debut EP a few months ago in Hamilton, Marie continues to build a fan base on home turf.
Peace and Love Heidi, a songstress from Brantford, Benefit_of_the_Free_Man_c650.jpgwill open up the night with her naturalistic ballads and love songs. Her soaring voice will leave you entranced.
