AlgomaTrad is excited to present two of Canada’s finest young traditional music groups, Vinta and Jane & Kyle, on Saturday, May 07 and Monday, May 16 on St. Joseph Island, and on Monday, May 09 and Tuesday, May 17 in Blind River.

Vinta is Nathan Smith (fiddle, guitar, vocals), Emilyn Stam (piano, fiddle, viola), John David Williams (clarinet, accordion), and Robert Alan Mackie (acoustic bass, fiddle), four brilliant performers and close friends at the cutting edge of European traditional music in Canada, including music from France, Quebec, and Scandinavia, as well as their own song and tune compositions.

Vinta has been making a name for themselves during Covid with some great online concerts, EP releases, and backyard appearances and are booked to play the Mariposa Folk Festival this summer. Here’s a chance to see them right here in Algoma, and you can also Check them out on Youtube for a glimpse at their wonderful music.


Canadian fiddle champions Jane Cory and Kyle Burghout will perform at the AlgomaTrad Centre on Monday, May 16, at 7:30pm and at Pier Seventeen in Blind River, on Tuesday, May 17, also at 7:30pm. Each with many accolades to their credit—Jane a Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Champion, and Kyle a North American Irish Fiddle Champion—they join forces to create innovative arrangements filled with lush twin fiddle harmonies. BUY TICKETS NOW!

Jane & Kyle have performed for audiences across Canada, the USA, and Europe and have just released their first recording, Of Hills and Valleys. They will be accompanied by Cape Breton pianist Tyson Chen and 5x Canadian Open Step Dance Champion and guitarist Kyle Waymouth.

Jane & Kyle both grew up in areas with rich fiddling traditions—Jane in Manitoba and Kyle in the Ottawa Valley—and their shows feature a blend of the traditional tunes from their roots and contemporary tunes written by fiddlers from across Canada and beyond, including many compositions of their own.

Tickets for each concert are $25 General, $20-Senior and Youth. Tickets are also available at Island Market, Richards Landing for Island concerts, and Pier Seventeen, Blind River for concerts there.
