    • How to identify all 8 species of turtles in Ontario
    • What turtle nests and eggs look like
    • How to help turtles across roads safely
    • How to report your turtle sightings
    • Fun turtle facts

    Dayna Manning
    Singer/Songwriter – Producer – Author – Mentor
    Juno nominated artist Dayna Manning exemplifies the very best that Canadian Folk music can be. Her cool clear voice along with her insightful songs represents a history of Canadian musical art that goes back to the early ‘60s and sounds just as vital today. A modern renaissance artist, Dayna recently produced Trent Severn’s third album “Portage”, designed the Stratford Festival’s best selling 60th anniversary t-shirt, and just produced her latest album “Morning Light” with the help of Stratford Festival alumnus Ben Bolt-Martin arranging for chamber orchestra. She recently penned her first book “Many Moons: Songwriter’s Memoir” which was released by Blue Moon Publishers in October 2019. In 2016 Dayna founded the “Folk Army”, a private music instruction academy in Stratford, Ontario. The Folk Army’s mission is to empower young girls to make a positive change in their communities through creativity, thoughtful performance and positive self-esteem.

As an educator, mother-of-two and champion of the “female forward” movement, Kolls’ vocals capture the audience with intense raw lyrics and her powerful piano playing.

From The Our Street Festival, to Aeolian Hall, to in front of that alleyway across from the Movie Theatre in Forest, Ontario, Kevin’s Bacon Train have been making people get up and dance with their upbeat bluegrass spin on the hits of the 80’s, 90’s and 20’s.

    Darren Powers
    Singer/songwriter Darren Powers has been honing his skills of songcraft and performance with nearly 20 years of experience throughout his home region of Southern Ontario.
