    Our feature performer, Owen Sound's own Coco Love Alcorn, has an album of brilliant new songs just about to be released, and she's joining us on Canada Day to give hometown audiences a special preview. Don't miss this exciting showcase performance!

    As a performer, Coco's always in the moment; joyful and genuine, soulful and compelling.

    She sings joyful soul; her diverse musical influences include jazz, pop, R&B and folk. Her voice has been hailed by press as extraordinary, beautiful and stunning. Her playful and witty character, love of improvising and willingness to engage fearlessly with the audience have given Coco Love Alcorn an established presence
    on the Canadian music scene.
