This upbeat cabaret takes you on a coast-to-coast road trip of stories and songs, including reimagined folk staples, contemporary chart-toppers and beloved classics. From Canucks like The Once and Serena Ryder to indie favs like The Decemberists to legends Bob Dylan, Joan Baez and Dougie MacLean - even a few songs by David and Rebecca! So put on a costume and sing along from the comfort of your home.
