What's Happening

The quintet of Jessie and The Gents, consisting of Jessie Hardegger - vocals and mandolin, Rick Noorlander - vocals and guitar, Markus Fritsche - vocals and bass, Rainer Hagmann - Fiddle, and Putzie Mayr - vocals and dobro, have firmly arrived on the country-acoustic scene.

Their debut album, Jessie & the Gents - On the Rise, was released in autumn 2017 and is available on iTunes and Spotify.

In May 2018 they won first prize of the Swiss Country Music Awards and received the award of 'best song' with 'I ain't gonna ride with you'.

The joy and the fire felt by this acoustic crew clearly shines through in the Music. 'back to the basics' is the order of the day. They perform originals, as well as songs from Alison Krauss, Norah Jones and others, simply executed but played with much love and enthusiasm, and to a very high Standard.

Genre: Roots and Bluegrass

The Carolines, a phenomenal vocal trio from Edmonton, Chloe Albert, Lesley Pelletier, and Katie Perman, apply their solid vocal harmonies to old country classics from Dolly Parton to Hank WIlliams, to the McGuire Sisters. Their humour is infectious, and with clever arrangements and spine-tingling harmonies, they breathe new life into the old songs, putting an authentic classic spin on the contemporary tunes. In the band’s ten years together, they have become the sweethearts of many Alberta festivals, music venues, folk clubs and house concerts. 

Genre: Classic Country and Western/Three-Part Vocal Harmony
