100 Mile House was formed in 2008 and is comprised of the husband-and-wife team Peter Stone and Denise MacKay along with Scott Zubot. Peter's vocals and acoustic guitar stylings, Denise's soft, elapsing voice, suitcase rhythms and snare tempo, together with Scott's almost-impromptu violin and mandolin harmonies, combine to create an uplifting, inspired, unique sound. They weave sultry harmonies and toe-tapping rhythms to create an intimate pioneering experience. Gritty, yet delicious. Their music is spiced with liberal doses of British pop sensibility, yet manifests an intimate, timeless feel laced through songs that would have been as comfortable in the British countryside of two hundred years ago as they are on the wide open plains today.

100 Mile House released their inaugural EP, On That Organ In The House By The Field, in late 2008. Since then they have released three critically acclaimed full-length albums; their latest, Wait With Me, in March of this year. Their 2011 release, Hollow Ponds, won the Edmonton Music Award for Folk/Roots Album of the Year and was nominated for a 2012 Western Canadian Music Award in the Roots Duo/Group category. Some of their career highlights include performances at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics (Alberta House), the Canmore Folk Festival and the Calgary Folk Festival as well as showcasing at the 2012 and 2013 Folk Alliance International conferences.

"100 Mile House offers up heartfelt songs, elegant, spare arrangements and some of the most polished and touching live performances we saw this year."
- Katherine Duncan - CBC
