Cassie & Maggie - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Cassie & Maggie
Fun, exciting, charming and talented Cassie Anne and Maggie Jane MacDonald are a dynamic Celtic sister duo who have emerged onto the music scene as the ones to watch.

Born in Halifax, with strong roots in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, the girls have been wowing audiences across Canada with their unique blend of original and traditional Celtic music. Cassie’s fiddle playing has been described as sweet and elegant with just the right amount of raw power while Maggie’s piano playing has an irresistible drive that will leave your foot incapable of staying still and compliments Cassie’s playing perfectly. Together these delightful sisters bring more than your average fiddle and piano duo; Cassie is an award winning highland and step dancer and also sings harmony for Maggie. In addition to her virtuosic piano playing, Maggie sings lead, plays guitar and is also an accomplished step dancer. Their music fits together seamlessly, encompassing various styles from Cape Breton reels to Antigonish Polkas, Quebecois fiddling and foot work to down east standards. Their vocal harmonies are sweet yet powerful and their step dancing exact and exciting, showing off their youthful charm and energy. They are certainly rising stars in the Celtic music scene; their act is exciting, captivating and not to be missed!
The Lords of Liechtenstein - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The Lords of Liechtenstein
The Lords of Liechtenstein is a quirky folk music duo composed of two brothers. Based in New York City, Noah (ukulele/guitar/vocals) and Dan (guitar/banjo/mandola/vocals) have brought their unique blend of folk music to clubs and coffeehouses all over the East Coast of the United States. The Lords have performed on NPR's acclaimed Mountain Stage radio show, were awarded honorable mention in the 2014 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase, and have opened for musical stalwarts like Brett Dennen, Buckwheat Zydeco, Elephant Revival, and Aztec Two-Step. Their newest album, Oh, Hello Sweetie Pie is as diverse as it is long, its fifteen songs exploring topics ranging from wrongful incarceration to the unfair persecution of movie monsters. Now that you know a bit about the band, isn't it time that you pulled on your sweater vest and listened to the future of folk music?
The Seven Continents - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Born and raised to a household of creators, Sammy Ray grew up surrounded by concepts of innovation and artistic beauty. As a child, Sammy found his way to the out-of-tune baby grand piano in his grandparent's house, and used his ear to pound out the chords to Beatles tunes he heard on the radio and on his parent's stereo.

Through the likes of the Billy Joel, Fleetwood Mac, Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, and countless others, Sammy draws from his favorite artists to write music for today's listening enjoyment.
High Fascination - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
High Fascination
High Fascination’s sound, described as “pristine and organic” by E Train, is an energetic blend of alternative rock, pop, folk, and psychedelic pop. Started in 2009 as a solo recording project, High Fascination’s first four albums Objections To Reality, Sudden Movements, A Time And Place, and How Do You Do? were recorded solely by multi-instrumentalist Andrew Weiss. The Music Court describes Weiss as "oozing with talent. Weiss is a band in a box." In September 2012, he began writing and recording with other musicians, releasing 2 albums under the High Fascination umbrella. An EP titled Poster Boy was released in April 2014, followed by the new album Miss Motorama in July 2015. The Music Court compared the music to “a ripe apple: crisp melodies when you sink your teeth into the music and juicy innards when you delve into its intricacies.” High Fascination combines smooth lyrics, melodies, and riffs to create a sound that optimizes both the studio and live performance. Forkster can “certainly see a big appeal for their glowing rock music charm, great tunes here!” Weiss is currently in the studio recording a new album.
