Block Heater takes place over two days and three evenings, Friday night to Sunday, February 21 to 23 at various venues throughout town and features an INCREDIBLE LINE-UP. This year has some incredible acts – check them out!

Ashley MacIsaac: trad fiddle’s original bad boy, Ashley MacIsaac, is a fury on the fiddle, a fire in the kitchen. He plays FAST, integrating new musical influences into his timeless instrument and always putting on a heck of a show!

Basia Bulat: An elegant songwriter and incredible performer, Basia Bulat plucks her autoharp as easily as your heartstrings. She is already a legend in the making and will only become more of a household name as time goes on. Catch her now.

DJ Logic: A turntablist with a jazz background, DJ Logic brings incredible musicianship to the world of hip hop DJing. He’s pioneered new sounds and techniques in nu- and acid jazz and is a must-see. Don’t miss out.
