6pm: Cash bar opens
7pm: Concert

Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, the powerhouse duo of Cara Luft and JD Edwards plays americana, folk, and bluegrass with a northern-prairie edge. With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear. Laugh, dance, and get caught up in a good ol’ fashioned sing-along.
