slovik slovak.png

July 29th at 1:30 PM!

Is a non profit organization formed by Slovak native immigrants who still and always put SLOVAKIA
together with CANADA in category of their greatest love. We chose to live far, far away from our home
land, land of our ancestors, but we remain in our hearts true Slovaks. Here, in beautiful British Columbia
we formed a big family founded on love for our folklore. We spread the word about our culture through
dance, songs, music, costumes, exhibitions, and we also teach our children to appreciate our Slovak
culture and to be proud of their roots.
Our society is made of three groups: SLAVIK adult dance group, children’s dance group SLAVIČEK and
Slovak School in Vancouver. Our first performance was on the stage of European Festival twelve years
ago and since then we regularly participate in many festivals around the Lower Mainland. You can find
about our groups activities at www.slavik.ca , www.facebook.com/slavikfolkloresociety and

Romanian Treasure Group.png

July 29th at 2:15 PM!

When Romanians ventured far from their homes, they carried cherished memories from ancient times—traditions, vibrant costumes, melodious songs, and the lively hora dance—transplanting these joyful reminiscences from their old homes to their new abodes in adopted countries.

In order to preserve these traditions and customs, to pass them down to future generations, and to share their rich culture with other Canadians, a team of passionate individuals joined forces to establish a group dedicated to promoting authentic Romanian folklore. This group came to be known as the Romanian Treasure Group. Making their debut in December 2018 at the Winter Celebration Festival in New Westminster, the group mesmerized audiences with their captivating performances of Plugusorul and Capra. The overwhelming success and heartfelt appreciation they received resulted in invitations to twelve other multicultural festivals held in various municipalities across the Lower Mainland. At each festival, the group's performances were met with thunderous applause, accolades, and recognition from the media. Buoyed by the enthusiastic responses they garnered, the group continues to meet, diligently crafting new performances that they are delighted to share with all interested audiences.

Slovak Sound.png

July 29th at 3:00 PM!

SlovakSound might very well be the only Slovak rock band living and performing outside of Slovakia,
made up of all Slovak born musicians and promoting Slovak rock music. They were formed 5 years ago
in Vancouver with an aspiration to bring a part of Slovak culture to every home of Slovak expats around
the world through music. They rearrange famous Slovak (and some Czech) songs into their very own
rock style.
The band consists of:
Matej KOCKOVSKY (lead vocals)
Andrej KRESTAN (lead & rhythm guitar, vocals)
Rasto KRAL (bass guitar)
Viktor MRAZIK (drums)

Danielle Ryan.png

July 29th at 7:00 PM!

Raised on a diary farm in Pitt Meadows, BC, Danielle Ryan naturally gravitated towards the country stylings of decades past. Ryan dropped her debut EP, Middle of the Madness in April ’23 but she’s far from new to the game; for over a decade, Ryan has been hard at work honing her writing and performance skills.

 

Ryan has already amassed more than her share of industry interest, landing a semi-finalist spot in the 2022 Sirius XM “Top of the Country” contest in partnership with CCMA Official, earning a Top-6 spot in the 2016 Canadian Country Music Association Discovery Program, and winning Country Music Television’s “Chevy from the Tailgate” contest.

 

Now, Ryan is eager to bring her polish and poise back to the stage. “I just love to perform,” she enthuses. “That’s why I started down this path in the first place, and I’m excited to do what I’ve been working towards for so long.

karen lee batten.png

July 29th at 9:15 PM!

Karen Lee Batten’s first distinctive musical memory came at the age of 4, when she memorized her father’s vocals as she watched him in concert. Inspired to develop her own voice, the British Columbia native of Abbotsford sang in choirs at the elementary and high school levels, and entered vocal competitions using Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” as her reliable favourite. These experiences marked the early foundation for the passionate vocal delivery and dynamic range that would later come to define her. As a young adult, she was bouncing between serving jobs, hosting karaoke shows, and performing intermittent gigs when an unwavering sense of purpose pushed her to devote full-time energy to music. Empowered by clearer ambitions, Karen Lee broke through as a Top 10 finalist on Canadian Idol, giving her immediate national recognition and an exciting industry entry point. Drawn to the country genre for its close-knit community and stylistic openness towards rock and soul elements, Karen Lee’s new pursuits led to her first album Every Moment and her first music video on Canadian Country Music Television. Karen Lee’s sophomore album, Cause a Scene, arrived in 2014 and did just that – hitting #1 in album sales and #40 on Billboard Soundscan in Canada in its first month, followed by four subsequent radio singles. She matched her album success with a commanding stage energy, which has since sent her to Rockin’ River, Merritt Mountain Festival, Gone Country, Sunfest, Williams Lake Stampede, a showcase during Canadian Country Music Week, and has made her an anthem favourite at NHL, CFL, and MLS games. With CCMA award-winning Mitch Merrett (MDM Recordings) and Michael Pyle (Bobby Wills) producing, Karen Lee’s third record, Under the Covers in Muscle Shoals, boasted hand-picked covers from the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. In its first week in Canada, the 2018 album hit #2 on Billboard Soundscan and #4 on iTunes. With her newest singles – 2020’s “Too Strong” and 2021’s “Drinkin’ Song” – Karen Lee has added a forceful modern edge to her distinguished country soul. Collectively, they have gained over 500K plays across YouTube and Spotify, with CMT Australia adding the official video for “Drinkin’ Song” to its regular rotation, later earning Karen Lee her 8th BC Country Music Association Award for Female Artist of the Year to go along with Music Video of the Year and Fan’s Choice (for the second time in a row). She topped off her recent success by winning Country Artist of the Year at the 2022 Jim Bean Indies Awards at CMW. With her next album arriving in 2023, Karen Lee Batten’s voice remains as timeless as it is relevant – commanding an adoring spotlight wherever a song might take her.

Serbian Folklore Ensemble.png

July 30th at 4:30 PM!

Folk Dance Ensemble Vuk Karadzic – Veterans was founded
in 1970 with a goal to keep the Serbian tradition and culture
alive through the best possible way: music and dance.
Serbian dance is an old tradition and a strong element in
the Serbian culture. The traditional dances are of social
function, bringing the community and families together at
various important days.
Costumes: among the creative aspects of the culture of
the Serbian nation, traditional costumes occupy one of the most
important places because of their role in everyday life, their
significance for ethnic identity, and their value artistically and
aesthetically.
The small part of the ensemble you are watching today, is
together since 2010.
Vuk Karadzic Veterans Ensemble has been part of many
festivals around North America and we are hoping to go even
farther away.

VK Veterans will perform Dances from Leskovac:
Prepared for VK Veterans by Artistic Director and Assistant,
Vladimir Ilic and Maja Ajdanic from teaching of Desa Djordjevic.
