Featuring Stephanie Cadman and Porch Couch (Jaron Freeman-Fox & Alan Mackie)

Each band will play a set, followed by a collaborative, finale set.

Stephanie Cadman is that rare, extraordinary thing: a quadruple threat.
A world-renowned dancer, an accomplished actress of stage and screen, a celebrated violinist, and a great singer, Stephanie’s talents know no bounds. Maintaining a busy touring schedule as a Canadian Folk Award-nominated solo musician. Stephanie has rocked audiences across North America and beyond. Between her starring role in the Mirvish Broadway production of Once, her celebrated career as an in-demand fiddler, choreographer, and her breathtaking and award-winning dancing, Stephanie Cadman has proven herself to be one of Canada’s most versatile performers.
Stephanie began her professional stage and music career at a young age as a lead in the hit musical Swingstep. She went on to fiddle and dance in Toronto Mirvish Productions’ Celtic review Needfire, and the Broadway National Tour of 42nd Street. Widely recognized as one of Canada’s top violinists, Stephanie’s stirring fiddle has also been featured in Bowfire, the dynamic all-violin stage show. Along the way, she has appeared as a fiddler and tap dancer with symphonies across North America including the Kennedy Center’s National Symphony Orchestra. In 2014 she was cast in the Mirvish production of Once, among the most beloved Broadway stage shows of recent years.

Stephanie maintains a lively and successful career in popular music. She has released two solo albums, Celtic Blaze and the Canadian Folk Award nominee Foggy New Year, both of which feature her impeccable fiddle and lonesome voice.
Catching the attention of luminaries across the music industry, Stephanie has shared the stage with everyone from Barney Bentall and the Cariboo Express, Daniel Lapp, The Chieftains, Belle Starr and Carlos Nunez. Along the way she has graced a laundry list of stages, from the grimmest dive bar in Brooklyn to the Royal Albert Hall itself.

Hailed by the The Guardian as an “incredibly talented” and “world-class” artist.

Porch Couch(Jaron Freeman-Fox & Alan Mackie)
There's something special about Fiddle and Banjo. Before Guitars, Mandolins, Dobros and String Basses made their way into the Appalachian traditions, Fiddle and Banjo carved out the core of what would become one of the most beloved traditions in American history. When this rich legacy is tapped into by two musicians of the caliber of Jaron Freeman-Fox and Alan Mackie, the full potential of this enduring beauty is undeniable. Each with a long list of recording credits and always in high demand for their stage work, Jaron and Alan have been playing together for over a decade. Their musical chemistry as much as their virtuosity make Porch Couch one of those duets that remind everyone why there's something special about Fiddle and Banjo.
