Live Music

Kevin Barr

Every Tuesday and Wednesday from May to September at the Carcross Commons

Kevin Barr is called the troubadour of the Yukon, singing his folk, bluegrass, and country style of music, along with stories of love and life.
As a writer, he and his band “The Undertakin’ Daddies” found their way to the Junos and toured much of Europe. He has shared the stage with Valdy, KD Lang, Fred Eaglesmith, Kim Beggs, Fred Penner, and the great Penny Lang, who has said that Kevin “sings like an angel”.
His solo album “Lost and Found” features great tunes of days gone by.
In his spare time, he enjoys life in a sailboat off Vancouver Island.

Come harken to Kevin Barr—you won’t be disappointed!

Lianne Cranfield

Every Thursday and Friday from May to September at the Carcross Commons

Lianne Cranfield has been singing since age 3, hitting the stage at age 9 and has performed thousands of solo shows.  She trekked through New Zealand and Australia with a guitar on her back, and was nominated as the entertainment ambassador of her hometown, Hamilton, Ontario.  When she moved to Whitehorse in 2012 she became a mother, so put aside many of her music endeavours for some time, but is now back in full swing and planning to co-produce her very first album this year.  With a Masters of Education, Lianne did some major research on early childhood music education and now teaches vocal lessons to people of all ages! Her most recent project is lead singer for the band Community Service, a collective from Whitehorse.  They can be seen this summer at the Atlin Music Festival and at various local venues throughout Whitehorse.  Lianne has been playing in the Carcross Commons for the past 3 summers.  She refers to her experience in Carcross as heaven sent, “To be surrounded by the mountains in such beauty, here is where I get the opportunity to sing my heart out.”  She is most grateful to be here to welcome you into Carcross!
