Bernadette Connors and Band: 10:30 p.m. Live Performance
Bernadette takes listeners on an intimate and exciting journey that resonates with audiences of all ages. Her full-length album “Monarch” was produced by Canada’s own John-Angus MacDonald (guitarist for The Trews) recorded during the pandemic. It touches on the magic of smalltown Ontario and highlights the importance of one’s local community. The project was truly a communal effort with local business, politicians, and community members coming together to bring the music to fruition. Bernadette gives back to her community with the song “Georgina”, which gives the world a glimpse into what makes the small Ontario town so special. Her new music has a unique, yet classic sound that’s been missing in Canada, and can truly be described as Canadian. Featuring some of Canada’s top musicians, and a voice that sounds just as good on stage as it does on the recording,
