Folk musicians perform at Knowhere Public House Dec. 7

Enjoy the music of Hannah Shira Naiman and Nathan Smith

Hannah Shira Naiman and Nathan Smith perform at Knowhere Public House in downtown Sudbury Wednesday, Dec. 7 in a concert organized by Sudbury FolkTrad.

Sudbury FolkTrad organizes and promotes folk and traditional music, dance and folklore events in Greater Sudbury.

Naiman is an award-winning performer, popular at Northern Lights Festival Boréal and at Scott Merrifield’s Sudbury House Concert Series.

She returns to Sudbury this coming week with fiddler and singer/songwriter Nathan Smith as part of her album release for “The Wheels Won’t Go” and their Northern Ontario tour.

Named traditional singer of the year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for her album

"Know the Mountain" (2017) and currently on tour supporting her new album "The Wheels

Won't Go," Naiman combines her powerful songwriting and impressive musicianship to deliver exciting contemporary versions of traditional music she was raised on.

Smith is a Toronto-based fiddle player and singer-songwriter, originally hailing from North Bay. 

His upbeat and soulful original songs and fiddle tunes combine his bluegrass and old-time experience with his upbringing playing celtic and traditional Canadian fiddle music.

The show gets underway at 7 p.m. Dec. 7. Tickets cost $25, and are available online at and at Knowhere Pub, located at 130 Elm St.
