It is an honor to have our beloved friend and Grammy award-winning bamboo flute master, Steve Gorn, join us for this event. We're also really glad that we'll be reunited with the talented Brent Kuecker (on bass) for this event. And, for the first time ever in British Columbia, our amazing touring band members Sean Frenette (bass, vocals and three string guitar) and Lindsey Stormo (vocals) will be joining us, too!
