Ian Tamblyn

Ian Tamblyn has been a working  musician since 1972. He has released dozens of albums of his work as well as acting as producer for many other artists.  Over the years Ian has written too many songs and has given up on counting them. He has also written fourteen plays and over one hundred theatre soundtracks.

Mr. Tamblyn has received a number of awards and nominations. In 2012, Ian was made a fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographic Society for his guiding and creative  work in the Canadian Arctic. He has been awarded the Estelle Klein and Helen Verger Awards for his contributions to Canadian folk music; he has a honourary doctorate from Lakehead University, a Distinguished Alumni Award from Trent University and was voted English Songwriter of the Year in 2010 by the Canadian Folk Music Awards, amongst other awards and nominations in the music and theatre world.

Ian's songs have been covered by numerous artists and there is a tribute album of his work entitled Coastline of our Dreams featuring artists like Lynn Miles, Susan Crowe , Hart Rouge and Valdy.

Kate Weekes

Northern wilderness adventurer Kate Weekes captures the landscape of her travels in song.  Dog mushing above the Arctic Circle on a Norwegian fjord in the winter of 2017 has influenced her most recent body of work.  Kate’s live performance is laden with candid stories of human migration and time in the bush.  Kate was received the 2017 Songs from the Heart Award from Folk Music Ontario i in the political category for her song 'Sing it to the Hills’.
