As an Irish country and folk singer, she has several albums including Time after Time, Voice of an Angel, Love Songs, and Just a Country Girl. 
  • The Oak Ridge Boys, one of the longest-running groups in country music, bring a lot of country and a little bit of rock, blues and gospel to the stage.

    The Boys have ten Gold Albums, two Platinum, and one Double Platinum album as well as 25 No. 1 hits including: “Elvira,” “American Made,” “Bobbie Sue,” “Thank God for Kids,” and “Y’all Come Back Saloon.” 
  • The Huron Carole is a Canadian touring musical production founded and led by Tom Jackson. Jackson claims music is his first love. It was the social heartbeat of his early family life, and after being handed a guitar at age 10, he is rarely seen without a six-stringed instrument by his side. Tom has recorded 15 albums.
  • Buffy Sainte-Marie is a Canadian-American Cree singer-songwriter, musician, composer and visual artist. Her singing and writing repertoire includes subjects of love, war, religion, and mysticism. “Up Where we Belong” and “Until It’s Time for You to Go” are two of her most popular songs. She was also a regular on Sesame Street in the early ‘70s.
