The Wardens - with performances equal to the mastery of the ranger trade, The Wardens - scott Ward, Bradley Bischoff and Ray Schmidt - are a Banff National park-based trio whose stories rise from the very land they’ve protected for the past 30 years. The Wardens' mountain music - blending folk, roots and western styles - is a piece of canadiana reflecting the pristine wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. "The quintessential mountain-culture concert experience." - Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine

Roger Dallaire – Franco-Albertan storyteller, musician, puppeteer and folklorist, Roger Dallaire is an accomplished artist who has much to offer. Proud of his French-Canadian cultural heritage, he is passionate about sharing his «joie de vivre». Roger brings you into his world with all the energy, humor and fantasy of a storyteller.

Conteur, musicien, comédien, marionnettiste et folkloriste, Roger est un artiste accompli et un passionné d'histoire et de traditions canadiennes-françaises. Qu'il manie l'accordéon ou la ruine-babines, qu'il tape du pied ou qu'il vous raconte ses aventures rocambolesques de jeune fermier, Roger vous embarque dans son univers avec toute l'énergie, l'humour et la fantaisie d'un conteur hors pair.

Cori Brewster - As fresh as a breath of Mountain air, this eclectic Bow Valley singer-songwriter knits together strands of folk and roots country. Cori discloses passion and finesse in her songwriting. Her lyrics are rich with a strong Canadian flavour, to the landscape, personalities, and stories she tells.
