The Haliburton County Folk Society is thrilled to reintroduce live music to the Haliburton Highlands in 2022 by featuring 2 local artists. Cassidy Taylor and Jess Knights.

Cassidy Taylor, born and raised in Haliburton offers a sensual voice that has always been able to silence a room. Her energy resembles a warm, sweet, and quirky introversion derived from her upbringing in the Haliburton Highlands. Cassidy finds a way to incorporate an element of storytelling into everything she does. Releasing her latest single, “Pretty,” was essential in finding her niche sound in the pop music scene. Cassidy adds an ‘underground’ flare to the genre while looking to artists such as Lorde, Taylor Swift, and Bleachers for inspiration.

Jess Knights, a professional musician from Calgary, has recently taken up residence after spending many of her summers at a family cottage on Lake Kashagawigamog. Straddling the renegade worlds of alt-country, blues and soul, singer-songwriter Jess Knights’ hard-to-pin-down style is reflective of her own unassuming past. Her 2020 album, Best Kind of Light, brings into focus the power of Knights’ luminous voice and her burgeoning skills as a songwriter of earnest balladry.

This double bill underlines the Folk Society’s commitment to support and celebrate local musicians of all genres. The Haliburton County Folk Society as the co-winner of Folk Music Ontario’s 2020 “Setting The Stage Award”
