Never been to an In The Round? These concerts focus on the stories behind the music, and the songs themselves. The music is stripped back to allow listeners to really experience the songs at the most authentic level. What it also means is that we won’t be having ‘sets’ per se – all four songwriters will be on stage together the whole time!

Gillian Nicola (Host)
The first thing that strikes listeners about Hamilton’s Gillian Nicola is the strength of her vocals. This rising singer/songwriter calls on influences of folk, rock and alt-country to bring a sound both unique to her and that honours her diverse taste.

Claire Coupland Music
With powerhouse vocals comparable to Susan Tedeschi and Basia Bulat, paired with the velvety softness, clarity and intonation of Eva Cassidy and The Staves, there is a pureness to Claire’s voice that can silence a room; at the same token, she can pull audiences into exciting head bobbing, high energy belting and strumming renditions.

John Muirhead
With stories and songs that kindle late-night Canadian campfires, John Muirhead’s heartfelt indie-folk sound will move you in more ways than one. From fingerpicked folk confessionals to upbeat roots-rock jams, John’s eclectic song collection reflects the highs and lows of love, ambition, and being a young musician. While he is based in London, ON, John is a a troubadour by nature and has played in living rooms, theatres, moving trains, and folk festival stages across Canada.

Ben Heffernan
Ben Heffernan is a singer-songwriter from London, Ontario. His driving, folk-rock sound, exhibited throughout his two EPs, Home (2018) and Different Wars (2017), and his captivating live shows, has established Heffernan as an exciting up and coming Canadian artist.
