Dan Mangan - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Dan Mangan
Dan Mangan is a two-time JUNO award-winning & two-time Polaris Music Prize listed musician and songwriter.

2018 brings Dan’s 5th full length More or Less, an album about witnessing birth, and in some ways rebirth. It’s about feeling disconnected from a popular identity and becoming acclimated to a new one. It’s about raising kids in a turbulent world. It’s about unanswerable questions and kindness and friendship and fear. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Drew Brown (Radiohead, Beck, Blonde Redhead, Charlotte Gainsbourg) and Simone Felice (The Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), More or Less features singles “Troubled Mind”, “Fool For Waiting” and “Just Fear”.

Aside from his own recordings, Dan has scored a feature film (starring Simon Pegg) as well as TV series for Netflix & AMC and has infrequently been a contributing writer for several international publications. Dan has toured extensively in North America, Europe and Australia. In 2017, Mangan co-founded Side Door, an online platform that connects hosts with artists for intimate performances in unique spaces. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and two sons.
William H. Travis - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
William H. Travis
William H. Travis writes songs and his first attempt to write a bio was called “tired” by his lady, when he was trying to liken his music to pictures in an old suitcase at an antique store, pictures of people who lived and died years ago, some surrounded by friends and family, others alone, afraid, full of regret and envy, some who never lived as they wanted to but as they thought they should. We may or may not buy the pictures, but we pick up a couple and look at them and for a few moments think of another life, another time, and leave ourselves for a second or maybe even give ourselves away to that place or time, and then we put the pictures down and we get back to life. So, William H. Travis sings songs that are like that suitcase full of photos.
