Karrnnel (Cutting Edge Violinist) -
Sunday, March 15, 2015 - 3:00 p.m.

2012 Winner of the Western Canadian Music Award for “Instrumental Album of the Year”

Karrnnel performs a unique blend of Celtic, Gypsy and Bluegrass.  The virtuosic, tight-knit trio brings the story of the fiddle to life.

Equally at ease in a chamber ensemble or a fiddle festival, Karrnnell is an award-winning musician and acclaimed recording artist.  Noted as a composer as well as a passionate performer, Karrnnel brings a high energy performance, contemporary style and flair.

Simply Sinatra (Tribute to Frank Sinatra) -
Saturday, May 2 - 2015 - 7:30 p.m.

“…stop what you’re doing and head to the show…he’s that good.”– New York Daily News
“Standing Room Only appearances from coast to coast”
“Uncanny charm and style – close your eyes and you’ll hear ‘The Voice’ “

Steve Lippia anchors the quintessential remembrance of “Old Blue Eyes.” More than a sound-alike, his Las Vegas appearances and national tours have cemented Lippia’s place as a champion of the Great American Songbook.  Come enjoy the “knock ‘em out their seat” vocals, a ten-piece big band and the greatest set-list of all time!
