A release from the memorial hall read, “Rarely can one find artists who continue to generate authentic music and artistry to balance our increasingly commercial world. While many artists may be content to depend their career entirely on mainstream trends that are sure to garner views and traction, Nikita Afonso has made it her mission to create songs that provoke human emotion. She has taken her love of pop and country music and made it her own, incorporating modern components and inspirations from her favourite artists.”

Tickets can be purchased online through the memorial hall website: www.erringtonhall.ca.
