KENDRA GALE BAND
This Blues/Rock duo packs a punch! Kendra's full, powerful vocals and riffy guitar style is driven by Warren’s hard hitting, groove based drums. It’s a sound that’s gained them two nominations for ECMA Blues Album of the Year, and a CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival.

CED, MARTY & DAVE
2017 ECMA award winners CED MARTY & DAVE are a fan favorite with their repertoire of Blues, Ballads, and R&B.  Their blends of original and classic blues songs arranged in their own unique style utilizing Guitar, Cajon, and Harmonica.  Inspired by Howling Wolf, Robert Johnson, Eric Clapton and others they cover but never copy.

STONEHOUSE

These four rockers have been tearing a path and leaving nothing but an audible  trail of destruction all the way from New Glasgow. It's their first time at Smokin' Blues Fest and they have promised to "bring the goods". Their high-energy set of blues rock will have no mercy. One of the hardest-working bands in NS and they've got the chops to prove it.
