100 Mile House (AB)
A journey that started with an accidental meeting at a show in Toronto 13 years ago has led Peter Stone and Denise MacKay to share their unique brand of transatlantic folk at shows and festivals across this great continent. Their latest release, Hiraeth, has been defined as ‘a sense of nostalgia and longing for place or person that may never have existed’. The album is a conversation about our deepest fears and the ability to find hope in the darkest places. With past works receiving critical acclaim and multiple award nominations, there is plenty of reason why 100 Mile House is one of Western Canada’s top emerging bands in 2018.
