    Joel Plaskett with The Emergency and Mo Kenney

    Canada has produced some of the world’s most enduring songwriters and Joel Plaskett is one of the best. With countless awards to his credit, thousands of tour dates, and numerous recording and producing projects under his belt, Plaskett remains one of the most innovative and prolific artists on the scene today. Plaskett’s latest album, Scrappy Happiness, is the follow-up to his hugely successful triple record, Three, which garnered overwhelming media response and caught the attention of international audiences.

    Plaskett’s music fuses the energetic melodies and hooks of power pop with the muscular strength of hard rock; as he once quipped, his music "combines the best of Big Star and Led Zeppelin."

    Mo Kenney will open the evening!

    We're very pleased to welcome Joel and Mo back to Regina after such a lovely performance at the 2014 RFF.

    Great Lake Swimmers with The Weather Station

    A Forest Of Arms is the sixth album from Tony Dekker's Great Lake Swimmers and the follow up to 2012's New Wild Everywhere. With a surging rhythm section, razor sharp violin, and flourishing banjo and guitars, Dekker and band mates have pushed their sound significantly, creating some of their most dynamic songs ever recorded.

    Those familiar with the decade-long output of Great Lake Swimmers will recognize the thematic threads of beauty in the natural world, environmental issues and explorations of close personal ties that hold us together. The familiar versus the strange theme is also running through this record, both in the instrumentation and in the songwriting ("Zero In The City", "I Was A Wayward Pastel Bay").

    Great Lake Swimmers consists of Tony Dekker on lead vocals and guitar, long time guitarist and banjo player Erik Arnesen, Miranda Mulholland on violin and backing vocals, Bret Higgins on upright bass and newcomer Joshua Van Tassel on drums. 

    The Weather Station will open the night!
