The Peterborough Folk Festival is proud to present Whitehorse(Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland) with opening set by our Emerging Artist 2012, TBA.
Individually, Luke and Melissa have been recognized with awards and nominations from the Juno Awards, the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Hamilton Music Awards, the independent Music Awards and the Polaris Prize. Together, Luke and Melissa create music that cascades forth, rushing like currents fluid and electric. More than the sum of considerable talents, Whitehorse showcases the rarity of true give and take in partnership, uniting falcon, with songbird to dramatic effort. The Peterborough Folk Festival is excited to present such a terrific act to start off the 2012 festival!
Our 2010 and 2011 Kickoff Parties have both been capacity shows, so get your tickets now to avoid disappointment.
