Hailing from the Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Canada, and immersed in the Ottawa Valley music tradition their entire lives, sisters Colleen and Erin Searson have been performing and competing in music and step dance contests since a very young age, which proved to be beneficial in making them the accomplished musicians they are today. 

Saturday afternoon: Rejean Desjardins followed by Donnie Leafloor, known as “The Rainman”.

Réjean Desjardins is a music lover!

Réjean is an author, songwriter, performer and entertainer, bringing Folk and Pop together. People enjoy singing along and enjoying the rhythms of Réjean's music, in pubs, festivals and concerts throughout the Ottawa region. 

Have some fun with Réjean! Drop in to  Ottawa Beer Fest, Friday or Saturday later in the afternoon, and  also enjoy the  largest selection of craft beers under one roof in eastern Ontario


Donnie is back again on Friday afternon and Saturday evening 

Donnie Leafloor, known as “The Rainman”, comes by his musical talents honestly. Handed his first guitar at the age of 10, he has relentlessly pursued his love of music with unabated vigor. The Rainman’s ability and raw talent have progressed to the point today where he is an accomplished award winning singer/songwriter, guitarist, and keyboardist and one of the most popular acts on the live music scene here in Ottawa. To truly appreciate Donnie’s vocal range and emotional honesty, it's best to experience him live!
