Who playing at the Trout in 2016?

FROM THE MUSIC PRODUCER

Celebrating over 20 years of making “Music in the Woods”

Trout Forest Music Fest! 21 years old – but to prove that all of us here at the festival are still just kids at heart, we brought back one of our favorite performers ever, Washboard Hank along with his talented Octoberfest cohorts. Also joining us at beautiful waterfront park in Ear Falls, ON this August 12-14 will be Canadian legend Jane Siberry as well as “one of the best live bands in the country” (according to CBC’s Bob Mersereau), The 24th Street Wailers. More first time appearances at Trout Forest will be coming from Canadian country stars, The Abrams and ground-breaking aboriginal artist William Prince. Leading yet another wave of great roots acts to come out of Winnipeg is the new duo of Cara Luft and JD Edwards, The Small Glories, and Juno master class winner, Slow Leaves. Amazing harmonies and songwriting will be provided by Toronto’s Scarlett Jane and The Young Novelists as well as Alberta’s 100 Mile House. Oh Susanna is coming back to Trout with a whole bunch of new songs and this time she’s bringing her drummer hubby Cam Giroux as well as her musical partner Jim Bryson who will also do some solo stuff from his fantastic new record. Nick Sherman, Greenbank, Rodney Brown, and Mike Procyshyn and Lonesome Boxcar will be here to show us great music exists in northwest Ontario all year long. Fun for all ages from Jake Chenier and Washboard Hank and more of Canada’s best singer-songwriters will round things out for this great Canadian festival experience… but instead of battling the tens of thousands, we get to celebrate in the intimate Trout environment.

Friday’s kickoff in Frank’s Tavern will, as usual, be a chance to sample some of what’s to come over the weekend. Jam around the midnight campfire and then get up for a stretch provided by YoGi Therapy and spend Saturday and Sunday wandering around between workshops and concerts at the three stages, stopping for a cool dip or beverage in between. The ‘family’ stage will continue to be a mixture of family entertainment and ‘open mic’ performances, so stop by with your instrument and show us what you got. You can also sign up for the hands-on instructional workshop and learn from some seasoned festival performers. Don’t forget to visit the many food and artisan booths. Remember… we’re not big, but we’re small… and you’re all good people. Relax, have a swim and enjoy the finest of Canadian music in the finest of Canadian places.
