Derek McKinley is a singer and children's entertainer who brings his joy of life to music in a fun way, inspiring children and adults alike through songs that empower and foster an appreciation for living healthy and environmentally awareness.

Singing and playing music has always been part of Derek's life, playing with bands, DJing, event planning, even singing telegrams dressed as a penguin and a gorilla! The idea for writing children's music started while teaching children in Japan, and adding the "party factor" to make classes more exciting for his students. He decided to share the fun with more people through festival appearances, birthday parties, songwriting workshops, music/movement playgroups and recently an album, Sing Song Party Time with Derek McKInley.

This contemporary roots band from Quebec performs an eclectic mix of music. A love of musical collaboration, Cajun music and travel brought them together. These talented high-energy musicians bridge gaps and draw parallels between the musical genres that inspire their own songwriting. From Guillaume Jabbour’s roots in chansonniers music from Québéc and France, to Bill Collier’s work as a musician collaborating with many of the east coast’s finest singers and songwriters, to Bill Gossage’s musical culture that draws upon deep roots in the Irish fiddle vernacular, and finally to Carl Rufh's bass work with some of Canada's well known blues acts, Jabbour is a contemporary roots band. Having played in various musical projects (Grouyan Gombo, Les Flâneurs, Dave Gossage, La montagne secrète, The Durham County Poets), they combined their creative abilities forming a project focused on original works. Their album Saint Bernard has 14 songs in french and english.
