Named Traditional Singer of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for her album “Know the Mountain” (2016), Hannah Shira Naiman combines her powerful songwriting and impressive musicianship to deliver exciting contemporary versions of traditional music she was raised on. Hannah has travelled coast to coast in Canada and the US promoting “Know the Mountain” and her debut album, “Tether My Heart” (2013). Since moving to Northern Ontario four years ago, she has continued to develop her songwriting with support from the Ontario Arts Council and grown her career as a children’s musician and music educator.
Hannah’s third album, “Wheels Won’t Go;” features songs inspired by her move from Toronto to northern Ontario, the COVID pandemic, and her experience of new motherhood. Whether performing in concert, penning a murder ballad, or calling a square dance, Hannah Shira Naiman is uniquely positioned to make a lasting mark on the Canadian music landscape.
Nathan Smith is a fiddler, singer, composer, teacher. and a member of the award-winning Barrel Boys. He recently released his first solo album Let it Rest, Let It Rise. "Nathan Smith's blend of traditional folk songwriting and old-time chamber music is a refreshing pleasure to listen to, and was a true joy to record. The freedom of interplay between the incredible musicians has made a uniquely exciting and rich recording of beautiful acoustic music." -Don Kerr, Rooster Studios, Toronto, ON (Producer, Engineer - "Let It Rest, Let It Rise")
