PLAID PEOPLE MUSIC is based in the northern mountain town of Smithers, BC in western Canada. We represent and book performing musicians known for engaging their audience and impacting them with their stories. Our current roster includes folk, blues, rock, and indigenous Canadian singer-songwriters Kym Gouchie, Mark Perry, Rachelle van Zanten, and Mip.

Our primary focus is theatre concerts and music festivals, and some artists also specialize in school shows and conferences with experience in songwriting workshops, youth music camps,  kids shows, mentorships, panel discussions, and emceeing.

The agency is spearheaded by SANDRA SMITH who combines her passion for the performing arts with 20+ years of business management. She is dedicated to supporting both artists and presenters to ensure everyone has the promotional tools and logistics in place to make each project a success. Sandra enjoys meeting new industry folk and looking for collaborative opportunities. At her core, she’s an entrepreneur who is driven to connect artists with their audience.


I recognize with respect and gratitude that, in Smithers, the land on which I live, work and play is the unceded traditional territory of the Gidimt'en Clan and the Wet’suwet’en people. em>
