WEDNESDAY, JULY 19 LINEUP
5: 15 PM – SKYLER RADMORE
Ottawa-based singer/songwriter Rory Taillon is a “road warrior,” touring across the country and back again. He has the soul of the East coast but the sound of the West in his songs with a voice to match the majesty of The Rockies.
Rory Taillon is not just an entertainer he is a performer. It’s just that simple, when Rory Taillon sings everything stops and when its starts again it’s all changed. It’s just that simple, like folk.
7:15 PM – 100 FLOORS ABOVE
Robin Guy & Scott Richardson began performing together at Ottawa’s Gladstone Theatre in a series of musical shows paying tribute to the songs of Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, and Jacques Brel. They most recently performed their shows Phantom Crew and No-Show, Songs from Lost Gigs.
They share a deep love of folk music, both traditional and contemporary. Their sound features warm duo vocal harmonies backed by Scott’s acoustic guitar. Scott is a freelance piano accompanist and is the longtime director of the choirs Atlantic Voices and Musica Viva Singers.
Robin is a theatre artist and the driving force behind Three Sisters Theatre Company. She was nominated by Prix Rideau Awards for Outstanding Female Performance for her role as Marie Antoinette in The Revolutionists, and was nominated by the Capital Critics Circle for her work in Miss Shakespeare and Creation of the World.
