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!
Sarah Hiltz (Special Guest Host)
Sarah Hiltz is expanding the contemporary Canadian folk tradition with her latest album, Beauty in the Blue, a compilation of songs and stories culled from her multiple journeys across Canada as a travelling musician on Via Rail’s passenger train, “The Canadian”. Co-produced by Sarah and Kevin Howley, Beauty in the Blue features lush, nuanced vocals and jazz-influenced songwriting. Sarah’s previous work as a talented singer-songwriter landed her opening slots for Canadian icons Gordon Lightfoot and Ron Hynes, Top 3 placement in a nation-wide music competition (She’s The One), and earned her an invitation to give a TEDx talk in 2014.
Greg Smith Music
Greg Smith is a Roots-Americana songwriter from Walters Falls, Ontario, Canada. Greg writes character driven story based songs matched with dynamic vocals and inventive guitar parts.
Bruce Scavuzzo started his musical career at the tender age of 8 singing in choirs. He has now been singing, writing, and composing music for over a decade, and doesn’t limit himself to just the guitar and voice. Bruce is also an accomplished bass player with various acts, such as Yasgurs Farm and Gillian Nicola.
Sarah VDB writes honest folk music that she hopes will inspire others to make art too. She’s fairly new to all of this and is humbled by the learning. Her debut work, The Moon EP, was released in May 2018.
