Baltimore folk songstress, Letitia VanSant, hosts a magical night of harmony with Toronto roots-rock duo. Letitia VanSant's lyrics are at once personally and politically relevant. Hailed as one of Baltimore's strongest songwriters (BmoreArt), her distinct voice is fortified by sparse indie folk and Americana arrangements. The Young Novelists have played stages across the U.S. and Canada, released three full-length albums, won numerous awards and continuous praise for their unmatched, effortless harmonies.

For over 25 years, Gina Pierleoni created nearly 300 portraits of people across the spectrum of familiarity, expressing the perspective that everyone deserves to be seen and heard.
