The Canopy Sessions 2023 Schedule: 

March 3:

Bear in the Forest + Tos Hopkins (Note: This Canopy Session is a double bill.)—Bear In The Forest (a.k.a. Alberto Kanost) hails from Milwaukee, WI, where he found passion in music performance and environmental education. BITF is an attempt to bring those passions together; to use music to reflect the beauty in nature, and remind people of the importance of staying connected to the natural world and their place in it.

Tos Hopkins began performing his original songs as a busker at his local farmers market in Madison. His music has been heavily influenced by places he has lived, such as traditional folk from England and Western Saraharn blues from NW Africa.

April 7:

Samba Novistas—Samba Novistas are a five piece band that plays a wide variety of Brazilian and Brazilian-influenced music including samba, pagode, bossa nova, samba-reggae, lambada, sertanejo, coco and forro, as well as originals and our own interpretation of Anglo tunes.
