9:00 PM Coco Love Alcorn
Every live show is like taking flight, and Coco Love Alcorn is the ultimate pilot. The blistering force of her vocals, her stirring songwriting, years of passion and experience on the stage and her “leap and the net will appear” performance style make for a powerful, provocative journey. With her latest project The Spirit Sessions and brand new album Wonderland, Coco takes her personal spiritual journey and somehow finds the exact place where it meets yours, and you can always be sure Coco will come in for a soft and certain landing. You just have to come along for the ride.
Busting out of the northern swamps of Grey-Bruce, The Great Canadian Swampstompers blend melody, wit, and dynamic rock and roll showmanship to create a sound all their own. Songs about lovers, losers, truckers and toilers delivered with a passion that makes everything old new again. Ted Rusk (vocals/guitar) Dylan McMullin (vocals/harmonica/accordion/guitar) Lauren Jewell (vocals/bass/poi fire dance) Steven Danard (drum kit/percussion)
