Jona Barr has spent the last three years bringing his music from the woods and sharing it with new fans across Canadian soil, playing house parties to festivals such as the legendary Dawson City Music Festival. In 2012, under the monkier Old Cabin, he released a six song EP entitled Growing Up Young as well as a split disc with Yukon ex-pats Old Time Machine. Two cross Canadian tours and a handful of local performances later, Old Cabin made its way back south to bring the first full length album to national ears.

For the 2015 Adaka Cultural Festival, Jona will be playing with his dad, Kevin Barr, who is another homegrown favourite.  Together they will share songs of their own along with some family favourites.
