The Performers.


Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar are a two time Juno-nominated 10 piece soul band from Toronto, Canada.

Samantha Martin is the lead singer, songwriter and focal point of the group. A dynamic front woman, she possesses a stunning voice that is capable of summoning up tidal waves of spine-tingling emotion in one instance while delicately bringing out the nuances of a gut-wrenching lyric in the next.

While Martin is a powerhouse unto herself, the vocal alchemy of Delta Sugar is not the work of a single talent. In combination with what she likes to term her “co-vocalists,” the vocal blend that Delta Sugar produces is pure, unadulterated gospel-tinged, neuron-tingling magic where the sum is even richer than the already soul-melting parts.


Conor Gains is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer makes music that evolves freely because it has been crafted outside of the box — effortlessly synthesizing the unmistakable warmth of Classic Soul and Modern R&B, with the soaring melodies of Psychedelic Southern Rock and Pop, and bound together with the precision of an artist with an ear for Jazz.

Opening Act:

Sisters and Brothers, back for their 10th consecutive Vancestock, are a group of wonderfully talented musicians (Logan Cooper and Jessica Charendoff and their siblings).

Why Does Trails Need Your Help Now More Than Ever?

The youth who benefit from Trails Youth Initiatives are, by the very nature of the charity, “at-risk-youth.” Two-and-a-half years of COVID and related stressors has increased these risks dramatically.

Many of the youth at Trails are members of visible minority communities.

Consistently there are events in Canada and the US that shine a bright light on the challenges facing visible minorities and vulnerable youth.
