- High energy country rock band, Rhindress, enjoys stirring it up with a touch of folk and Celtic flavours. Their newest album, Cut Flowers, described as a bouquet of Canadian songs, is sure to lift your Canadian spirit. Jim and Kim Rhindress are joined by BCCMA nominee Cyril Schermann, Scott Evans, and Bob Silversides.
- Leila Neverland’s iconic voice, raw stage presence, and soulful performances transcend all expectations as this composer, pianist, and brilliant vocalist takes you on a journey of musical genius. Uniquely magnificent, Neverland is a gift to all who want to express themselves through music.
