Late show: Sarah Wheeler, Robin Hunter, The River and the Road
Sarah Wheeler is a dyed-in-the-wool singer songwriter. With the upcoming release of her third album, Out of the Woodwork, Sarah's ambition is to present her songs in a direct and passionate way. Although she has enjoyed collaborating with other musicians, lending her vocals to recordings such as "A Small Wonder" by A.C. Newman of the New Pornographers, and sharing the stage with bands including the Be Good Tanyas and Dan Mangan, this Vancouver-based roots artist has remained focused on writing and performing her own music with vigilant integrity.
"One of Vancouver's punchiest indie singers."

Keenan draws influence from the North Island where he was born and raised, where as Andrew writes from his experiences growing up in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Australia. Together they have developed a sound that stands out from the standard Folk/Americana genre and can be easily recognized by their powerful harmonies and energetic live performance. http://www.tratr.com
