Stone Poets at LanaLou’s

Stone Poets bring together an extraordinary blend of poetic lyricism and emotionally powerful instrumentation.
Cherelle Jardine (Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin), Scott Jackson (Vocals, Guitar, Percussion), and Marc Gladstone (Vocals, Keyboards) create exceptionally moving music that genuinely matters.
While rooted in an expressive Modern-Folk sound of their own design, they combine intense themes that are anti-typical of the genre, all in a sincere effort to create relatable, raw, & real, sensory sonic experiences that leave a lasting impact on listeners through their own unique melodies & beautifully timeless sound.
Join them as they take you on a journey with select songs from their body of work which includes 4 albums, 2 new singles plus a few of their favourite covers.

The Spiritual Warriors are led by father and daughter, Leroy Joe (vocals, guitar), and Daisy Joe (vocals) and are accompanied by Richard Doucet (djembe drum). The backbone of the Caribbean rhythm section is laid down by Mike Rowe (bass) and Tim Lall (drums) of Jamaican and Trinidadian heritage. Ancestors, their debut album was released in 2019 and won Best World Recording at the Native American Music Awards in New York.
