Catherine Allan and Andrew O’Brien know a lot about what it takes to make a good partnership. Their debut album, The Blisswas nominated for a JUNO Award, garnered two #1 singles on CBC Radio 2’s Top 20, won the 2016 “Rising Star” ECMA, the 2015 “Vocal Group” Canadian Folk Music Award, and four 2015 Music Newfoundland and Labrador Awards.
Newfoundland duo Fortunate Ones’ second album Hold Fast is a study in resilience and partnership. With the whirlwind that has been the band’s first 5 years it seems apt that the first track on this record, “Northern Star” calls on listeners to reflect, stay strong, and move forward.
Opening act Sherman Downey’s radio-friendly brand of upbeat folk/pop appeals to a wide demographic. His debut album "Honey For Bees” was well received by fans and critics alike, earning him ‘Musicnl’s Male Artist of the Year’ and broadening his reach on an international stage.
