Sensational slide guitar player LESTER QUITZAU with MICHAEL “BAREFOOT” TREADWAY on drums & the very soulfoul gnarly RACHELLE VAN ZANTEN in concert, opening by THE ALKEMIST.

Meet Canadian roots music artist and snowboarding pioneer Lester Quitzau, a mellow guy who throws down a heavy groove. In a field where intangibles like feel and integrity count for so much, Quitzau has forged an exemplary career. Distilling the experience of the past 25 years of writing, recording and performing his music, Lester has come up with an approach that is his own. His unique style and fluidity on slide, acoustic and electric guitars, coupled with his well crafted songs and warm vocals, are the fruits of this musical journey. Many of his followers have watched his career with love and loyalty in what began as a solid traditional folk/ blues foundation, that has branched out into myriad of influences and a sound that is his own.

“Lester combines a Blues base and a sense of Jazz improvisation and a spiritual quality to his music. It’s very soulful and connects on the dance floor and to the heart.”
—Holger Petersen, Saturday Night Blues (CBC Radio)

“A groove de force that rattles and reverberates the cornerstones of blues, jazz and rock music.”
–Fast Forward, Calgary, AB

Known for her powerful live performances and equally powerful social activism, Rachelle van Zanten blends socially conscious lyrics with soulful Canadiana grooves in a way that neatly captures the essence of her northern British Columbia origins.

“Rachelle van Zanten is our voice, the muse of the North. She writes songs to inspire the wind, give voice to thunder, and fire the hearts of all those fighting to protect the land she loves so dearly.”
– Wade Davis, National Geographic

Rachelle has released three critically acclaimed solo albums and has been a fixture on the International and Canadian roots and festival circuit. Little Spruce, her latest release, is the culmination of more than 20 years writing, recording, performing and touring as a renowned Canadian roots rocker.

For the first decade Rachelle was a member of the award winning Edmonton band Painting Daisies. Making the road their home, Rachelle and her band mates were an all-female group touring the world when it was a thankless task, inspiring and leading countless young women toward rock and roll.

Since the Daisies parted ways more than a decade ago, Socially conscious yet highly crafted song writing has become her signature.

A kick driven, rattle shakin’, one man band based in the hidden valleys of northern bc. playing a combination of guitar, banjo, fiddle and drone flute while keeping rhythm with kick drum, crash cymbal and a bone rattle boot, the alkemist weaves dark and enchanting soundscapes with fist pumpin’ boot stompers.
