Ray LaMontagne Ten years ago Ray LaMontagne released his first album, TROUBLE, the gold-certified start to a fiercely ambitious, Grammy Award-winning, critically praised career that's encompassed three more albums, several EPs, a slew of soundtrack compilations and arresting live performances fronting a variety of ensembles. "It certainly feels like some time has passed," LaMontagne says now. "But I have to say, boy, time flies..."
Greenbelt Harvest Picnic September Seventh Entertainment Limited and Friends of the Greenbelt present Ray LaMontagne, Daniel Lanois, Bruce Cockburn, Boris Brott & The National Academy Orchestra, Los Lobos, Sarah Harmer, Ron Sexsmith, Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun, Elliott Brood, and Laura Cole with more artists to be announced.
Daniel Lanois Daniel Lanois is currently writing and recording new songs for his next release, which is set to debut in the fall of 2014. This new record sees Daniel coming full circle with some of the more ambient work that he and fellow collaborator Brian Eno were at the forefront of in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. The album is driven intently by his unique instrumentals and cinematic ambience.
Boris Brott & National Academy Orchestra Boris Brott is one of the most internationally recognized Canadian conductors, holding major posts as music director in Canada and the United States. He enjoys an international career as guest conductor, educator, motivational speaker and cultural ambassador.
Bruce Cockburn Bruce Cockburn: Kicking at the Darkness For 40 years, this Canadian musical legend has been capturing in song the essence of human experience – while fiercely striving to make it better. by Nicholas Jennings
Los Lobos More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A. Since then they’ve repeatedly disproven that title Los Lobos isn’t just another anything, but rather a band that has consistently evolved artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots.
Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun Gord Downie, The Sadies, And The Conquering Sun begins with “Crater”, a ragged anthem that erupts with frayed guitar and thundering rhythm. Dallas and Travis Good’s trudging riffs light the low-slung growl of Gord Downie: Hello there / Gentle Son / A crater / We’re creating!
Sarah Harmer Sarah Harmer possesses one of the most distinctive voices of the Canadian rock and folk music scenes. In just over a decade, she has established herself among the pantheon of legendary female songwriters this country has produced, her name spoken in the same breath as Joni Mitchell, Sarah McLachlan, Sylvia Tyson and Kate & Anne McGarrigle.
Ron Sexsmith In a world of workaday singer-songwriters mired in vacuous self-regard, news of a new Ron Sexsmith record can only gladden the heart of those who care about deftly poetic, gently affecting songs that perfectly distil the pitfalls of being human. Especially when that record pairs him again with the producer who, for two decades, has framed his music in its most sympathetic surroundings.
Christie Lake The natural beauty and splendour of Christie Lake provide an idyllic location for the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic. Located 20 minutes northwest of Hamilton, Christie Lake is one of the most beautiful lake settings in the Region.

Elliott Brood Elliott BROOD have always been time travellers. The Toronto trio writes songs steeped in history that feels very present. They've done their share of actual travelling, too, these musical troubadours, acoustic guitars and banjos slung over their sharp suits as they barnstormed across Canada and beyond.
Laura Cole Born into a musical family, singing came as naturally to Laura as walking and talking. As a child she entertained family and friends with renditions of old favourites around the campfires of late Canadian nights.
Katie Bulley Katie Bulley (Former lead singer/songwriter of Canadian all-girl group 'The Barettas') is performing in support of her first full-length solo studio album, 'Sun Wolf' recorded at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN.
Hachey the MouthPEACE 2013 Much Music BeatBox champion, Hachey the MouthPEACE is more than just a beatboxer. He records, loops, and creates beats as he beatboxes – in essence creating original songs each time he performs. Hachey has spent the last 13 years perfecting his signature sound of the mouth with explosive performances transforming new listeners into life-long fans.
Lori Yates Lori Yates is true country in a Johnny Cash "middle finger" kind of way, the cowgirl singing her heart out in the punk clubs. Enigmatic, rebellious and hard to pin down, veteran singer/songwriter Yates has been called "alt-country" long before the phrase existed.
Alfie Smith Alfie Smith is a prolific songwriter who has recorded 6 albums over his 20 year career. Known best for his resophonic guitars, brazen slide licks and uncompromising vocals, Alfie is endorsed by several luthiers including Goodman Guitars (who have recently named a guitar model after him) and Goldtone Banjos.
Ohnia:kara Ohnia:kara (oh-nee-ah’ga-ra) is a diverse group of individuals from many First Nation backgrounds and as many musical influences and styles. Sharing traditional music, dance and culture is the motivation towards better relations … one song, one dance, one conversation at a time.
Manitou Mkwa Singers Manitou Mkwa Singers (Spirit Bear Singers) are from the Mississaugas of New Credit and are composed of mainly a mother and four daughters. Two older daughters, the son, some nieces and nephews also join in when available.
Stephanie Cadman Stephanie Cadman grew up in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. She began her professional career as a lead in the hit musical ‘Swingstep’ combining her skills as actor, dancer, singer and fiddler.
Rita Chiarelli Rita Chiarelli, Canada’s most highly acclaimed female roots and blues artist, with a JUNO award and 4 subsequent JUNO nominations, is known across Canada as the “Goddess of the Blues”.
Suzanne Jarvie & Rocky Roberts Suzanne Jarvie from Toronto and Rocky Roberts from the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts have been collaborating on their songs since meeting through their producer Chris Brown. They each produced their debut albums with Chris at his studio "The Post Office" on Wolfe Island.
