The celebrations for Canada's 150th continue with back to back concerts featuring some of Canada's most talented artists. This April, we are pleased to welcome the Great Lake Swimmers to the stage on Friday, April 28 followed by the amazing Jill Barber on Saturday, April 29.
The birthplace of Canada's national parks, the Cave and Basin National Historic Site, has a rich history and connection to nature that continues to be shared in unique ways today, like Concert at the Cave. This quaint, intimate venue has presented arena sell-out artists such as Steven Page, frontman of the Barenaked Ladies, and Cape Breton fiddler and international performer, Natalie MacMaster. Concert at the Cave is in proud collaboration with Parks Canada.

About the Artists
Great Lake Swimmers are one of Canada's long-time word-of-mouth favourites on the folk music scene. Their songs have a rich, gorgeous sound that layers classic folk roots, twang, rhythm and blues and compelling songwriting. They have a reputation of recording in the field, in everything from remote cabins to abandoned subway platforms. The sounds they produce in these unique locations transform to unforgettable live shows, not to be missed.
Two time Juno Award nominee Jill Barber, is one of Canada's brightest stars. Her Mischievous Moon album spent 13 straight weeks at #1 on the Canadian Jazz charts and debuted at #12 on the US Billboard Jazz charts. She wrote and performs her latest album, The Family Album, with her brother Matthew Barber. Typically selling out theatres coast to coast and headlining some of the country's most prestigious festivals, don't miss the opportunity to see Jill in the intimate and historical setting of the Cave and Basin.
