For the better part of two decades, Toronto’s Enter The Haggis has combined bagpipes and fiddles with a rock rhythm section to create a distinctively eclectic sound, praised by The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and Canada’s Globe and Mail. Their songs offer singalong melodies and deep, meaningful lyrics which tell the stories of everyday hard working people, often faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges. Signature songs like “One Last Drink”, “Gasoline”, “Down With The Ship” and “Lancaster Gate” have had millions of plays on social media and streaming sites, have appeared in Hollywood movies, and have been performed and recorded by artists around the world. Enter The Haggis is clearly comfortable on the stage and develops an easy rapport with audiences, sharing the stories behind their songs and laughing through tour anecdotes. The show is exciting and dynamic, featuring unpredictable and spontaneous moments. One song might feature drummer Bruce McCarthy taking a drum solo on Trevor Lewington’s guitar strings, while the next song breaks down into a fierce battle between fiddle and harmonica. Sometimes during an encore, the band will leave the stage entirely to perform acoustically standing on chairs in the audience. Rose Baldino (House of Hamill, Burning Bridget Cleary) joined the band on fiddle and vocals in 2020, strengthening the traditional sound of their performances. Enter The Haggis’ commitment to putting on a great show every single night has made them a favorite at festivals and performing arts centers across the US and Canada. As a result, ETH shows have become an annual tradition on some of the most prestigious stages on the continent. The band has also brought hundreds of fans on eight tours of Ireland, forging deeper friendships with their supporters while exploring ancient landmarks and natural wonders across the country. The next fan tour is planned for Scotland in 2022.


Enter The Haggis is currently on tour in support of its most recent album, The Archer’s Parade.




Black Mountain Symphony is a six-piece progressive folk band from the hill country outside Albany, New York. Multi-instrumentalists, singers and songwriters all, BMS has toured their original compositions throughout New York State, around the Northeast, and across the US, performing alongside acts ranging from Rusted Root to the Young Dubliners to Days of the New. Their live sets showcase a limitless range of influences, blending genres to create a unique emotional experience with every show. “No one’s out there like Black Mountain Symphony…the champagne of eclectic music” – Stephanie Fisher, New Voice, NY

Named for the twilight silhouette of the mountains they call home, Black Mountain Symphony began as the high school garage band of siblings Annie (Violin) and Bear (Keyboards) Campo, writing and performing original alternative music to escape the confines of their classical training. The rhythmic guitar and bardic songwriting style of Charlie Burgess complemented the swelling soundscapes of the Campos, and drummer Bill Palinski brought jam-danceability and pop-punk sensibility to the act. Prog-bass virtuoso Paul Burke, a frequent collaborator on BMS side projects, now rounds out the rhythm section, and lead guitarist and childhood friend Jesse Sample can be found shredding through BMS classics and interweaving harmonies with Annie Campo’s soaring violin lines
