About The Event
Aleksi Campagne is uniquely qualified to offer a contemporary, indie-folk take on the time-honoured fiddle-singing tradition.
Aleksi grew up on stage. At five years old, he began performing alongside his mother, Canadian folk icon, Connie Kaldor. At nineteen, Aleksi moved to Paris to study under Jazz-violin legend Didier Lockwood. At twenty-one, Aleksi became the only student to have ever been accepted into the classical violin, the jazz violin and the jazz voice performance programs at McGill University. And, by twenty-five, with only a six-song EP, Aleksi graced the lineups of some of the most competitive folk festivals across Canada for three consecutive years - including the Regina, Canmore, and Bear Creek Folk Festivals.
Most recently, Aleksi received both a Canada Council Grant and a FACTOR Grant to fully fund the recording and production of his highly-anticipated 10-song debut album For the Giving, launching fall 2023. Still based out of his hometown of Montreal, Aleksi floors audiences by singing while bowing his violin and seamlessly navigating songs in English and in French. His original music blends folk songwriting with an edgy, multi-layered sound resulting from his unique combination of voice, violin, and looping-effect pedals.
“The dreamy orchestration and floaty vocals of ‘Another Day’ provide a silken sensory camouflage to Aleksi’s profound mastery of story-telling, letting the listener inside the heart of the singer with wordplay, imagery, pensive pauses and a thrillingly casual whistle solo.”
-Paul Corby, Roots Music Canada
Nate McCormick is the guitarist and singer for the up and coming Eastern Shore trio, Native Tongue. As a solo artist, Nate incorporates various instrumentation and effects into his shows - basing performances off a phrase sampler/looper. With an eclectic array of influences and a broad range of experience, his shows combine progressive levels of energy and feeling - and Nate makes music through a choreography of sorts, layer by layer. Each performance becoming unique and special, as they’re all constructed right before your eyes and ears. Although he's not the only one out there using this type of approach to making live music - he's got a performance style that's decidedly original and unique.
