Whether you’re talking about her as a songwriter, guitarist or vocalist, one thing is indisputable: Hamilton’s Terra Lightfoot is a ferocious talent. Her songs tap into the raw emotion of hearts supercharged by love, lust, loneliness and temptation. Her playing melds expert finger-picking and distorted, hook-heavy melodies. And her elemental voice commands attention and awe, whether on slow-burning soul ballads or hard-charging rock numbers. Check out her video 'Paradise' here

KABN - This is the FIRST weekly Salmon Bake of the season!
Fresh Wild Salmon straight from Haines Alaska served fresh off the grill! Grab a plate and pile on the sides and salads, then sit down and enjoy the show! BBQ starts between 6-6:30, music at 7pm.
"KABN is a true northern band, practicing in a little cabin nestled at the base of Mount Sima in Whitehorse, Yukon. They are a group of aspiring song writers who play a wide variety of music, but regularly come back to their roots as a blues/rock band. If you like a mix of blues and rock, like the Tragically Hip, the Headstones and the White Stripes, mixed with fun new originals, you will love these guys. Bring your dancing shoes!"
This band features Haines Junction's very own Lee Drummond!
Call or email now to reserve your dinner. Free admission for the show!
