Winners of the Edmonton Folk Music Festival Emerging Artists Award and the 2016 All-Albertan Song Contest, 100 mile house have shared their unique brand of transatlantic folk at some of Canada’s biggest festivals. Their beautiful harmonies, rich arrangements and captivating lyrics have led to awards and nominations across Canada as well as radio play across the globe. Wearing their trademark honesty firmly on their sleeves with songs discussing the loss of of a loved one (Hidden Springs) to the struggles and grief that can come with trying to start a family (Last Branch), their new album Hiraeth is a conversation about our deepest fears and the ability to find hope in the darkest places. Hiraeth was No.1 on CKUA and received stellar reviews including the front page of the Canadian Folk Magazine Penguin Eggs. Their last two albums 'Wait With Me' and 'Hollow Ponds' were both nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year, won three Edmonton Music Awards and both included a grand prize winning track from the Calgary Folk Festival Songwriting Contest. Their riveting live performances have led to appearances at the Edmonton, Calgary, Canmore and Vancouver folk festivals.

Since forming in 2004, the Henderson-Kolk Duo has established themselves as one of North America’s premier classical guitar duos. Drew Henderson and Michael Kolk met at the University of Toronto and after their first performance together, quickly cultivated a musical chemistry that has resulted in a dynamic and exciting performance style. Their program will feature an exciting array of music with an emphasis on the duo’s original arrangements. Of interest are the transcriptions that take familiar works into the new sonorities of the two guitar medium, creating a fresh and intricate sound delivered by the sensitive playing of the Henderson-Kolk Duo. Their program will feature arrangements of Schubert’s piano works, an oboe concerto by Alessandro Marcello, the opening movement of a Mozart symphony or selections de Falla’s La Vida Breve. They will also feature works specifically written for two guitars, such as the beautiful pieces by Canadian Patrick Roux. This is definitely a concert not to be missed.
