SARAH HARMER | September 23, 2015  

Red Lake Madsen Public School | 7:30PM
With one of the most distinct and expressive voices in Canadian music, Sarah Harmer propelled herself to the top of the charts in the early 2000s. Through her natural ability to turn a simple melody into something magical, Harmer’s songs like “Basement Apartment” and “Don’t Get Your Back Up” became anthems of the new millennium.

Red Lake District High School | 7:30PM
Motus O Dance Theatre Company has been capturing hearts touring the world since 1990. With backgrounds in both street and stage theatre, the performances are physically risky, spirited, and energetic.

MUDMEN | November 18, 2015 

Red Lake Royal Canadian Legion| 7:30PM
Drawing inspiration from traditional Scottish music and AC/DC, Mudmen are full of energy and attitude.
