The Kents are an emerging force on the Canadian musical landscape. Hailing from Lindsay, Ontario, the four-piece indie rock band recently released their new EP Within Waves. Says lead singer Warren Frank of the new release, “it’s like those classic coming-of-age Breakfast Club-type films.” Awkwardly dissolving romances, the impact of family, and tests of personal faith. They have been featured on the Apple Music’s 2016 Rising Stars, Spotify’s Best of 2016 Viral Hits, Hockey Night in Canada, MLB’s World Series, 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, and Canada’s Walk Of Fame Emerging Artist. They’ve shared the stage for sold-out shows with Sloan, The Sheepdogs, The Trews, The Strumbellas, The Elwins, The Fast Romantics and Hollerado.

Hill & Landing are a local up and coming duo, made up of Amy Brady & Liam Roesch. Brought together by Mike Woods of The Northumberland Rock & Roll Experience, they immediately found their groove and have been performing in Northumberland County for almost a year.
Amy’s voice is soulful beyond her years and along with Liam’s intuitive guitar style they create a captivating live performance.
