From Fred's web site
Fred Eaglesmith has never answered to anyone but Fred Eaglesmith when it comes to making music that says something, means something and is something he truly believes in. Growing up through hard farm times where land got lost and dreams got plowed under, Fred knows what it means to work hard (he tours a gruelling 250-300 shows a year). If the Fred Eaglesmith bus could talk it would tell you stories about long border crossings, gliding down mountains by flashlight or just plain smoking on the side of the road.
In a country like Canada where state ran (where else you going to go?) liquor stores sell CD's for the buying public that have no Canadian content Artists like Fred Eaglesmtih and so many others of unmeasurable talent go unnoticed to so many. As for radio station air-play? What's a radio station anyway? Just stop for a minute and think about it...the disc jockey isn't even picking the music. What's he doing there...talking to you. Only a few select non-mainstream stations give Fred Eaglesmith the air play deserved. Fred has built his own following of Fred Heads and has been warmly embraced in the U.S., Australia, Europe and across Canada by going it his way!
Opening for Fred will be Tom Bays

This four piece unit consists of Drums, Keyboards, Bass Guitar, and Saxophones, with everyone on percussion during the big MARDI GRAS BEAD TOSSING Raveups. They use voodoo grooves, junkie blues, Zydeco jump, and New Orleans second-line funk to achieve a spicy swampy medley of sometimes-jazzy, always innovative Cajun-inflected psycho-blues
It's Mardi Gras time in Greenbank!
Get out your dancing shoes!

From Tom's web site:
A veteran of the Canadian music scene, Wilson is a larger-than-life figure of a man whose unstoppable personality can fill a room. His piercing eyes and dynamic performances are coupled with a voice that is instantly recognizable in a crowd. A writer and performer of many years, Wilson's eclectic, character-driven musical style has ranged from the psychobilly punch of the Florida Razors, to the folk/blues sensibilities of Blackie & The Rodeo Kings and the funk/blues inspired rock of Junkhouse.
Now solo, energized by the new direction of his career and feeding creatively off of fresh collaborations, Wilson is shying away from traditional music industry monikers.
"I've never wanted to be anything else except a musician and a writer, but I don't want to be seen as a singer-songwriter because of the connotations," he offers. "Instead, I want to break down the cliches of what people think a singer-songwriter should be. Singer-songwriters are commonly thought of as people who write out of boredom, ennui, self-indulgence and self-importance. There's a passiveness attached to this and I'm not any of those things."
Opening for Tom is Gregory Hoskins

Mose Scarlett is, unarguably, one of a kind. While he draws on a wide range of musical sources from the early 1900's through the 40's, his style defies categorization or comparison - the blend is unique. He bills his music as 'Jazz, Blues, Ragtime and Swing' because, as he says, "those are the four things I've been accused of most often". His self-taught, original technique of fingerpicking, dubbed 'stride guitar' by Canadian music journalists, delivers a syncopated punch and features simultaneous chords, melody and bass line, smoothly executed, without seeming effort.
Opening for Mose is Pat Temple
