Logan Richard

Growing up in Stratford, Prince Edward Island, music has always been a driving force for Logan Richard. After picking up the guitar at the age of 10, he quickly became known among the local blues crowd as a force to be reckoned with.

At age 12, he formed a blues group with friends called “Ripped Paper”, and the band played venues all over Prince Edward Island. Since then, Logan has been a part of a few other groups such as The Elusive Kings, Generator and The Love Junkies.

Logan now has several releases under his own name, and just released his sixth studio production entitled “Running”. Logan’s EP “The Split” 2.0 was nominated for Blues Recording of The Year at the 2019 East Coast Music Awards.

 
9:00PM - Hillsburn

Hillsburn

 

Hillsburn is a powerhouse. Their songs are timeless, their sound every bit as anthemic as Florence + The Machine’s, but with soaring three-part harmonies thrown in for good measure. After touring extensively in support of their award-winning debut, the band released a follow-up, The Wilder Beyond, in February 2018, and a deluxe version of the album in February 2019. Hillsburn’s indie-rock sound draws on the songwriting focus of folk music, and combines it with a pop sensibility. The band’s performances are dynamic, energized, and emotive. You won’t want to miss this band that is already on its way to becoming a national treasure.
