About the artists

Pink House Band

The Pink House Band is made up of 5 members: Charlie-Rose Pelletier, Jeffrey McLean, Seth Brown, Gabe Mahamad and Juan Pablo Herrera. Coming from diverse musical and cultural backgrounds, the band members come together to fuse blues, funk and R&B. Pink House Band's music celebrates diversity through art and embodies authentic expression. It's an emerging band that wants to help make Yukon's music scene shine.

Dentdelion Band

Dentdelion is a proudly French-speaking emerging band from Whitehorse. Combining Nordic poetry, haunting melodies and captivating rhythms, Dentdelion invites you to a fiery Solstice celebration! The group offers a cocktail of original songs, with a few covers that have some bite.


Hailing from Quebec, Cayenne performs energetic, introspective and sensitive narratives with accuracy and passion. A blend of feminism, millennial concerns, the search for identity through love of the land, all topped with influences that waltz with musical polyamory. Her first album, SNOWFLAKE, was released in autumn 2022.
