Ellen Froese
Hailing from a dairy farm in Central Saskatchewan, young hip-swinger-folk-singer Ellen Froese is not Joan Baez or a sheep, but the vibrato in her voice may tell otherwise. Ellen is a folk artist who also plays in bluegrass/folk group In With The Old. With recent performances including Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, and Merlefest in North Carolina, there is no doubt that Ellen is a busy bee – balancing In With The Old and her solo project. One of Ellen’s very first gigs was a 2014 opening slot for Catherine MacLellan at the Bassment in Saskatoon – two years later, she was headlining the venue herself. In March of 2016, after a very successful release show at age nineteen for her first solo album “Get On With the Blues (filled with folk songs and bluegrass numbers), she embarked on her first solo tour across Eastern Canada. Since then she has written countless songs, performed constantly, and toured Canada both on her own and with In With The Old.

Derek W. Curtis
Derek W. Curtis is a Folk/Americana Songwriter who uses traditional songwriting and his modern consciousness to create thoughtful and timeless songs. Derek grew up in Massachusetts where he discovered music from before his time with influences like Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and others. Now based out of Nashville, TN, Curtis has gathered eras of folk, blues, bluegrass, and country music into his repertoire to mold his own modern twist on songwriting, capturing the simple complexities of his thoughts and stories.
