Main Stage Performers
The Garrys are a band of siblings from the coldest part of the landlocked Canadian prairies. They use layered 3-part blood harmonies, hazy sun-bleached melodies, classic lo-fi guitar tones, and syncopated surf beats to create a unique “doom-wop” sound, dripping with dark nostalgia and touched by psychedelic dread.
12:30 PM & 3:30 PM
Donny Parenteau is a proud Métis country artist, born and raised in Prince Albert. Donny picked up the fiddle at age 14 and his musical journey began, becoming a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who has shared the stage with country music icons like Tim McGraw, Shania Twain, and Reba McEntire.
