5acres brings a fresh energetic sound to Country Music. 5acres founders Vern and Christina Neufeld may be familiar to many from the Low-German comedy folk group 3molPlaut.

The main focus of their music is family friendly classic and contemporary country music including covers and a growing list of originals.
A Half-Time Cowboy, Byron Falk lives in a modern world, but carries an old western heart. Rural roots and early in life exposure to the sad sounds of country and bluegrass has surely contributed. Despite a late start in music, learning to play strong rhythm guitar and a couple of bluegrass licks provided the platform for a very organic and classic country sound. The band has played summer music festivals, community fair’s, theaters and barn lofts – sharing the stage with many talented players.
The Janzen Boys
Father-and-sons trio, The Janzen Boys, got their start busking as a rootsy, harmony-singing family playing in various places around Winnipeg, Manitoba. It wasn’t long, however, before there was a demand for more. After racking up almost 4000 views on YouTube in the University of Winnipeg’s Uniter Fiver contest for new bands, they were chosen for a finalists showcase at Winnipeg’s iconic West End Cultural Centre. From there the ball started to roll and soon their schedule was filled with house concerts and festival gigs all over the province.
Poets & Lies
Never content with white picket fences, these three walk the line between loving, laughing and living life to the fullest…and being downright orn’ry with the pain of loss, leaving, and loneliness. There’s no red plastic cups or tailgates, and much more Tennessee whiskey than tequila shots–just pure self-medicated blue collar yearning. The trio is steeped in the tradition of older songwriter country (Merle Haggard, Guy Clark, and John Prine), while exhibiting a keen modern sensibility in their own songs. Poet’s and Lies will sing of real life, and leave the whitewash at home.
Jackson is a 15 year old musician, vocalist, and multi instrumentalist from Kenora, Ontario. Jackson first picked up the guitar at 8 years old and never looked back. From the sweet Delta sounds of the Steel Resonator, to the electric guitar of the Chicago Blues. Jackson has discovered a passion for Blues Music, and has become a dedicated student of the genre.
Howard and Joel Jolly
Howard and Joel Jolly are an exceptionally talented father-son duo. While they don’t get to play together very often, when they do, the audience can’t help but be transfixed. Joel, the director of worship arts at Steinbach EMC, and Howard, senior pastor at First Nation Alliance Church in Winnipeg, sing and play as if you were the only one listening, and minister straight to your soul in the process. There is an honesty and a truth in their music that is very hard to find these days. Howard and Joel sang in Grunthal in 2016 at the community refugee sponsorship fundraiser at the Elim church, and we’re thrilled to have them back.
We’re four guys who love the Lord, love harmonies and love to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through the gift of music. Whether it’s Southern Gospel, Country, Contemporary, Traditional or old time hymns, we aspire to be a blessing with what God has entrusted us, wherever He can use us. Small Church, Large Church, Banquet, Fundraiser, Television, outdoor venue, it doesn’t really matter, as long as we are able to bless others and bring glory to His name.
Manitoba’s Aaron Prociuk is the real deal when it comes to performing a tribute to Johnny Cash. Growing up in the countryside of East St. Paul and inspired by the music biopic “Walk The Line”, Aaron taught himself how to play guitar at the age of 15. After mastering the lead work of Cash’s guitarist Luther Perkins, he discovered he had a knack for singing Johnny Cash’s music as well. A.R Cash began in 2013 as a stylistically authentic tribute to Johnny Cash’s music from the 1950′s through the 1960′s, and the members perform as if they’d been together their entire musical careers. With the addition of acclaimed country songstress Ashley Robertson to portray June Carter Cash, they have won the hearts of music lovers throughout the past year performing in sold-out venues across Canada.
