About Carmen Braden

Carmen Braden is an emerging force in the world of creative music, hailing proudly from Yellowknife NWT. As a performer, Carmen is “growing into the role of acoustic ambassador of the Canadian Subarctic” (Musicworks).

Her contemporary classical compositions are nationally recognized, with commissions and performances by world-class ensembles and performers including the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, James Ehnes, and the Canadian Chamber Choir.

Carmen has been called “a talented, bold musician” (Up Here Magazine). About her latest album: “Braden’s music is clear, and it is bright…this recording is captured psychogeography.” (Whole Note); and her songwriting: is “quirky and clever…à la Joni Mitchell” (The WholeNote).

About Wesley Hardisty

Wesley has been part of fiddling training programs as a student and now a teacher. He attended the Gulf Island School of Performing Arts and is currently in the NACC Mentorship program being mentored by acclaimed violinist/producer/ composer Jesse Zubot. Wesley is sought-after as a collaborator with fiddlers, singer-songwriters, and classical ensembles. Welsey values community connections and has made it a priority to perform for elders and be a leader in youth mentorship from the training programs that he went through as a student.
