Join your friends for Alianait's 14th Festival opener!!
Brooklyn Doran is an indie folk singer-songwriter, originally from Kenora, Ontario now based in Toronto. Her live show weaves song and storytelling, from humorous anecdote to heartfelt ballad. Her music has snatched the hearts of fans from coast to coast.
Canadian alt-folk songwriter AHI (pronounced “eye”) has traveled 100,000 miles, armed with an acoustic guitar and a voice like “gravel on silk”. Winner of the 2017 Canadian Songwriting Competition and one of NPR's favourite discoveries of the year, this soulful troubadour is one of Canada's most promising new voices.
OLD MAN LUEDECKE
Old Man Luedecke is none other than two-time Juno Award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter and banjo player Chris Luedecke of Chester, Nova Scotia. His latest release, Domestic Eccentric was recorded in a cabin in the snowy Nova Scotia woods. Not since Loudon Wainwright III has anyone written so honestly, so openly, or with such aching tenderness and good humour about family life.
Lazarus had hearts melting at his debut Alianait performance earlier this year. His first album Iqippagit is already becoming a household favourite among Inuktitut music lovers. On March 9th, Lazarus performed on the Yukon Arts Centre stage as part of the Yukon Arts Summit. He will be joined by his bandmates Allan Kangok and Billy Jay Ammaq at this year’s festival.
