Born into a musical family, Guelph native Alaina Sampson has been influenced by music her whole life. She has performed vocally in churches and with the Guelph children’s singers at a young age while achieving grade 8 in royal conservatory piano. More recently, she has been performing with her family band at local venues in and around Guelph and Orangeville. This weekend she heads back to her roots singing gospel songs with her mother, Rev. Marion Loree, who taught her these songs as a child!
