I'm Carter Holmes and I'll be your host for this year's festival!
I'm a CDHS graduate and attend the University of Toronto for Drama! I have been in the CDHS jazz band every year of high school and was the co-host of last year's festival. I love performing and hosting shows for an audience. I absolutely can not wait to be a part of the Warkworth Music Festival again this year!

Gunslingers – Saturday 3:30-5:00 PM
With over 60 years of combined experience, the musical strengths of Gunslingers are clearly evident everywhere they play. Whatever the style of music they play, the result is always the same. – a full dance floor, happy crowd and a memorable night. Art Lajambe and orignal Gunslinger drummer Errol Boucher played together for over 6 years and 3 CD’s in the band Mahogany Ridge. With the addition of Dave Crane in May 2014 Gunslingers was born.
Rayzor’s Edge – Saturday 6:00-8:00 PM
Rayzor’s Edge started out around a campfire somewhere in North Ontario. Ray and Jake have been playing in the Warkworth area for the last few years. They are inspired by music, yet face the challenges of raising a family and paying the bills. They love to play classic rock, rockin’ country and Ray’s originals as well.
At the age of 14, Ray decided he would like to play guitar, so he picked up his brother’s and taught himself “Heart of Gold” by Neil Young. It took him six weeks and he has been playing ever since. In his early twenties, Ray made a living playing the bars in Toronto, but left that life for his family. Ray writes and has a large collection of his own material.
Jake has been singing in his car since he was 16, but only in recent years has decided to take it to the stage. Jake has taken to karaoke at the local legion and continues on with Rayzor’s Edge.
Watch for new additions to Rayzor’s Edge soon!
Blue Angel – Saturday 8:00-10:00 PM
Blue Angel, formed in 2012, is the 80’s Experience. They will take you back to the glorious days of “Arena Rock.” Step back into the era of big hair and classic rock music, and relive your high school years over and over as they play all your FM radio favourites! Grab your hair and your spandex, and get ready to ROCK!
