Barre La Porte
Every chord of Barre La Porte speaks to almost half a millennium of Christmas in Canada. Magnificently French Canadian to its core, Barre La Porte brings to the Festival Longhouse the folk songs that lifted spirits at the very formation of our country, the stories of trial, joy and love that will help us carry Canada through the 21st century.
Mariachi Los Dorados
Time to set aside those silver bells for something more, well, mariachi. Los Dorados brings you the lush and layered, exuberant and beautifully human sound of a sleek, sultry and joyful Christmas. The Dundarave Festival is proud to see the return of this vast and spectacular orchestra to the Festival Longhouse.
North Shore Celtic Ensemble
Making its debut to the Festival Longhouse, the North Shore Celtic Ensemble is set to bring a muse of fire to your Christmas. With energy and a creative genius second to none, this ensemble will put a spring in your step through the rest of the season, beating back the longest nights of the year with a soul stirring Celtic heat.
Celebrating its 35th season this year, Concordia brings to the Festival Longhouse the bright harmonies and uplifting lyrics of Germany's ancient folk songs. Concordia brings the heritage of Handel, Mendelssohn, Schumann and Bach to the beautiful shores of Dundarave Beach.
