CORRINA KEELING TOOK OVER THE TRAIN

Corrina Keeling took over the Artist on Board position with Via Rail this month and performed gigs across the East Coast from Dartmouth and Halifax in Nova Scotia to Fredricton in New Brunswick. We look forward to having her back on the West Coast and hearing more about her adventures and changes in perspective. 

We are currently booking shows for all of our artists for the fall. Do not miss a chance to have The JFP at your school. Spots are limited so tell a teacher or your principal to book a presentation today!
