Brandon has been playing his accordion for 4 years, he played in many festivals such as NL Folk Festival, Eastport Accordion Festival, George Street Festival, Music and Friends Festival in Bell Island, Janeway Telethon, O’Reilly’s Pub and he even had the opportunity to play with some popular NL bands such as Shanneyganock, Rum Ragged and Masterless Men.

Anne Malone is a Guide dog wrangler, bias-defiant writer, speaker, and creator who envisions and advocates freedom from disability for people who are blind or visually impaired.
Malone’s writing plumbs the depths of history, the classical arts, and popular culture to reveal the origins of deeply buried cultural beliefs about the abilities and characteristics of people who are blind, and the catastrophic consequences these misbeliefs have on blind/VI people around the world.
In partnership with her guide dog Cheryl, Anne opens the eyes of the sighted to the complexities of living with blindness in a visual world.
Kyle Saunders is a stand up comedian, improvisor and actor attending Memorial for Psychology. He has been volunteering and advocating for mental health since his diagnoses with bi-polar at the age of 14. It has been a wild hilarious ride of manic mental mischief. That makes for an interesting life which wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support and patience of family and friends throughout the years. Kyle also keeps himself healthy with basketball, lifting weights, soccer, and attempting to not eat so much junk food. Which has an amazing affect on keeping him sane-ish.
