They take part in the international touring scene, more recently in Belgium and Germany, but on Friday the trio performs at The Mack in Charlottetown. That's the same spot Vishten recorded their ECMA award winning CD "Vishten Live".

DennisEllsworthSearchlightTop10.jpgThis week, CBC Searchlight officially announced the top 10 finalists in all 24 regions across Canada for the 2014 edition of Searchlight: the hunt for Canada's best new artist.

A panel of celebrity judges in the CBC's Searchlight competition saved five finalists from elimination because the judges feel they deserve to be in the top 10. Grant Lawrence makes the reveal.
