Coldsnap Music Festival 2013 is on its way

The Coldsnap Music Festival is pleased to unveil it’s 2013 lineup. Once again, the Prince George Folkfest Society has sought to gather a diverse range of talents, both local and from farther afield. Things kick off on January 18 at the Ramada Ballroom with an indie dance night featuring summer festival favourites Shred Kelly, rising Vancouver music stars Current Swell, and Prince George Idol winner Chazz Amos. This is followed on January 19 by a Eclectic Funky Celtic Night featuring Prince George singer Andrew McFayden, the raucos King Crow and the Ladies From Hell hailing from Terrace, and award-winning musician Troy MacGillvray. On Sunday, things move to the PG Playhouse for an intimate evening of Aboriginal Artists. Don Amero is a star in the Winnipeg music scene, described as John Mayer-meets-Toby Keith. And Diyet is a contemporary aboriginal artist who is focused on removing the barriers and stereotypes that face modern aboriginal people. Monday and Tuesday will once again showcase local talent, with a lineup still to be finalized. Both those shows will be at the ArtSpace, as will Wednesday, January 23 which sees the return of past festival favourites Dala, and the arrival of the YouTube finger-picking guitar sensation from Toronto Ewan Dobson. We return to the singer-songwriter vibe on Thursday when UK musician Jake Morley arrives to share his soulful funky sounds and then Matt Epp takes the stage to bear the torch of past Canadian songwriting greats like Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell. The folk festival gets folksy when husband-and-wife duo Pharis and Jason Romero of Horsefly, B.C. share their captivating sound at the PG Playhouse, followed by the lively Daniel Lapp Trio, marking a return to Prince George for the show-stealing fiddler. Things finish where they started at the Ramada Ballroom when Coldsnap partners with Le Cercle des Canadiens Francais de Prince George for “Danse, Danse, Danse”, an evening of French-Canadien folk music with Vazzy and the Quebecois musical treasure Yves Lambert. There will also once again be workshops around town, along with additional performances, with details to be announced. If that seems like too much to wait for, never fear– in just a week’s time Coldsnap is warming up with indie dance rockers Hey Ocean! and Alvarez Kings, performing at UNBC on November 9. Tickets on sale now at Books and Company, Studio 2880, and UNBC. For all the details on Coldsnap 2013 including music, artist bios, and media contacts, please visit coldsnapfestival.com/coldsnap2013.
