Harmony Bazaar announces 2012 headliners

The self-described festival of women and song has announced its headliners for this summer. Harmony Bazaar organizers say Serena Ryder and Sarah Harmer will perform at the event, which runs from July 27-29. Errin Williams Spidle says both artists can have a positive influence on women.
"One of the things it does it speaks to how women can do well in the music industry and they can do so with writing really good, strong lyrics and making well-crafted songs because they are both amazing singer/songwriters as well as performers."
Spidle says the two women are top Canadian performers and expects they will draw a big crowd for the event.
She says the festival is enjoying early bird ticket sales with weekend passes being sold for half price until the end of the month. All the details can be found at .
