Æternal marks 21 years of ministry in 2018. Over the years members have come and gone, but the message of unity through spirituality has remained the same, delivered through a blend of guitar, harmonica, percussion and a harmony of voices that has been likened to The Kingston Trio, Peter, Paul & Mary and The Eagles. But Æternal, which is made up of Daniel Garvin, Mike Amelotte, Paul Despault, Dieter Fernworn and their newest member, Lianne Brown, cannot be pigeonholed: they own their own sound. They continue to write new material and look forward to sharing their latest creations with all who wish to give a listen! For more, visit www.aeternalministries.com.

Les Flâneurs (Harlan Johnson, Bill Gossage, Guillaume Jabbour), a new formation that evolved from the previous Montreal band Grouyan Gombo, plays music rooted in the rich Cajun and Creole traditions of southwest Louisiana. The members originate from Quebec and the Acadian regions of the Maritimes. Their sound features the soulfulness of high-pitched Cajun French vocals riding atop infectious dance rhythms, travelling between Cajun ballads, two-steps and waltzes influenced by country, rhythm & blues and Zydeco flavours. Authentic and vibrant, the music of Les Flâneurs has created a sound that is true to that its Louisiana roots while emulating regional influences, especially in their original compositions and Cajun arrangements of Quebec songs.
