Other highlights include beach performers, including Ann Vriend, Leela Gilday, New Country Rehab, Fit Garcia, Andrea Koziol, Navaz, the Aboriginal Collaboration, Redgy Blackout and Kytami.

The art market begins today at 11 a.m. and runs until 5 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.  The Beating Heart: Spirit of the Sts’ailes is a special First Nation art show that runs all month at the Ranger Station.

The festival began last Friday, and is the 33rd annual event, bringing music to Harrison from all corners of the globe.
