Open and natural, like an unexpected balm on life’s scrapes and scratches, Reney Ray comes to us from a village called Val-Rita in Northern Ontario. She’s a multi-instrumentalist and a singer-songwriter whose way with words is frank, yet sensitive. She delivers country-infused pop-folk with a sincerity that sometimes soothes, sometimes hits hard and never fails to win you over.

La Slague's Evolution

La Slague was established in 1964 by the Centre des jeunes de Sudbury. After many years of success, La Slague went dormant, and then reappeared for a time in the mid-1980s as a community-based volunteer organization. With La Slague’s renaissance in 2006 as part of the Carrefour francophone, a third generation of concert promotion activities was afoot.
