Nightingale with Miss Magpie, Cud Eastbound, Dani-Rae live at the VEC

Born from a flame in Kamloops BC, Nightingale delivers to audiences a medley of voice, banjo & guitar, recreating the spirited elements of this land for which we all live and share. Her immersive performance deepens like a sonic-labrnyth, honouring the reverence of the nature that surrounds us.” (Nature-Folk, Necromancer-Roots)
