Up, Down, and Away

If you are looking for some of the best talent from north of the border, look no further. Up, Down, and Away features some of the “must-see” acts from Canada who might not otherwise be known to you, but will undoubtedly find their way into your music collections like past discovery acts we’ve featured on our stage before, like the Wailin’ Jennys, Matt Andersen, the Duhks and more – but this time, it’s a full roster worth. Enjoy this musical feast.
