Bluegrass / Country / Roots

These four young women are some of the hottest players on the Canadian roots scene. They can shred, they can holler, they can make you dance, they can make you weep, when these gals are on stage your heart is in their hands. They infuse their unique brand of country music with Appalachian Old Time, a Southern twang, and some funk inspired bass lines that'll get your hips swinging while your toes are tapping.

Montreal-based Lakes of Canada was founded in 2010 by Jake Smith (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, percussion) and Conor O’Neil (drums, vocals) as a “Simon & Garfunkel”-esque folk-pop duo performing Smith’s songs at various cafés and bars around town. The past four years have seen Lakes experience a dramatic shift both in style and membership: with a heavier, indie-rock sound infused with gospel/soul influences, Lakes have added the likes of lead guitarist Tim Dobby, Sarah Morasse on keyboards, vocals, flute and harp, and, former Honheehonehee front-man Greg Halpin (guitar, bass, vocals, percussion). Lakes of Canada maintains their commitment to vocal harmony (around which the band was created), but with a rich instrumental complexity befitting a classically-trained group of musicians.
