Janet Bickerton from Sydney has been singing and playing guitar most of her life. She has been around jazz players and has been singing jazz “in the kitchen” for a long time, but has recently started performing jazz with the Carl Getto trio. She is loving it – and the audience seems to love it as well. She was featured vocalist at this year’s 2020 Jazz Festival with the Carl Getto band. Janet offers up a delightful selection of classic jazz standards along with a mix of her favorite tunes.

Ralph Dillon is a guitarist and pianist, known for his rhythmic, driving style. He has performed in every province and territory in Canada, as well as the US, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Ralph played with the band Buddy and the Boys, was a founding member of the Rise and Follies of Cape Breton Island, performed with the Cape Breton Summertime Review, and played with the late, great singer/songwriter, Rita MacNeil for over a decade. Some of his career highlights include receiving gold and platinum CDs for work with Rita MacNeil and performing at venues such as the Sydney Opera House and the Royal Albert Hall.


Ralph is also a composer, arranger, and producer, having produced albums for artists such as John Campbelljohn, Morning Star, the Cape Breton Summertime Review, and Rita MacNeil.
