Uniting her passions for music and history, Camryn (she/her) explores the Gaelic lineage through song, reclaiming the traditions of her Scottish ancestors and tending to their embers to honour the ancient ways through this modern era. As a folk musician, Camryn draws from her inspirations—the 60’s, Earth-centredness, Ancestral lineages—and weaves their medicines into her own creative tapestry through poetry, songwriting, vocal improvisation, and instrumentation (primarily piano/guitar/bodhrán).

Young Owen Sound singer Sophia Sled will open for Camryn. Sophia’s passion for performing and creating music started as a wee toddler. She started classically training at the age of 5 in the arts of piano and voice and began studying guitar at the age of 12. She is fortunate to have had great musical influences and mentors that have immersed her in the local musical community. This has opened many doors, creating opportunities for Sophia to share her gifts and entertain an audience - and that is what she loves the most.

Josh Ritchie is a born performer. Ever since he could stand, he's had a guitar in his hands and songs in his bones. As a performer, he's eclectic, charming, and captivating. As a songwriter, he's poignant and elegantshowing a wisdom beyond his years. Ritchie admires music with purpose, and, as a young, ambitious person of colour, he takes pride in weaving social issues into his work. This, combined with Ritchie's infectious charisma and significant musical chops, makes him a complex artist that will leave you wanting more. His unique brand of story-driven art-rock will move you, inspire you and, most importantly, have you dancing and singing along.

In Ritchie’s young career he’s enjoyed significant achievements on and off stage. He has released two successful independent albums, the first being featured in the CBC Searchlight Top 100 list; the second going on to get features on “CBC Ontario Morning” and the “Key of C,” as well as being streamed thousands of times internationally. Ritchie’s commitment to artistic integrity combined with his larger-than-life rock energy make him an exhilarating up-and-coming act that you won’t want to miss.
