Event Details

Kafinal

Juno-nominated and Trailblazer award-winning singer, actor, and producer Kafinal is also known as Canada's Festival King. Born in Spanish Town, St. Catherine, Jamaica, Jeffery “Kafinal” Williams lists Bob Marley, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson among his musical influences. Most recently he has received international critical acclaim for his "Nah Complain" with the great. U-Roy.

Elaine Lil'Bit Shepherd

Winner of the JUNO for Reggae Recording of the year in 2011, Elaine “Lil’Bit” Shepherd was again nominated for a JUNO for her 2013 album “Move Ya.” Influences from Elaine’s native Bahrain blend with the West Coast Canadian vibes that she encountered when she immigrated to Vancouver in 1997. The nick name Lil’Bit makes reference to Elaine’s petite frame which is starkly contrasted by her big and soulful vocal power.
