Back by popular demand, Chris Murphy of TURPIN’S TRAIL (Kingston/Perth Road Village, East Coast/Folk/Celtic) is back! Chris is from Turpin’s Trail is the Kingston-based quintet of Chris Murphy, Jon McLurg, Brian Flynn and Noah St.Amand. Having played concerts and festivals across Ontario, Turpin’s Trail has shared the stage with artists such as Murray McLauchlan, J.P. Cormier, and Leahy. Tight harmonies and acoustic instrumental accompaniment (guitar, mandolin, banjo, Irish Bouzouki, ukulele, Bodhran) bring out the beauty and energy in their original songs and their creative interpretations of songs drawn from Celtic, folk, bluegrass, and popular music genres. Amalgamating gorgeous folklore and traditional Celtic with east coast song, naturally, they are HUGE fan favourites in the Westport area.
Whether it’s a fiddle tune or folk song written from the heart, Jess Wedden has been capturing hearts at every performance with her energetic stage presence and effortless smile. Her trick fiddling, singing, step dancing, and finger-style guitar picking belies her young age and reflects her exceptional passion and drive. In the short time Jess has been in the industry, she has earned national recognition as a 2016 and 2018 Canadian Folk Music Award nominee and a 2018 Canadian Songwriting Competition semi-finalist. It’s no surprise she received a standing ovation opening for Ashley MacIsaac at the Festival of Small Halls Ontario.
