Memories of our 2018 lineup
What a great bunch!
Raven She Hollers
Raven She Hollers, hailing from the boreal forest fringe at Birch Lake, Saskatchewan, will touch your heart and set your toes a’tapping. Chandra Pederson, Joys Dancer and Nissa Shiell, share their musical enthusiasm through their original material as well as unique interpretations of old-time Appalachian songs, jazz, swing, back-country blues and tin-pan alley tunes. Guitar, ukulele, 5-string fretless banjo, accordion, and dobro back up their honey-sweet harmonies.
Mark Gimby grew up playing oldtime dances in rural Saskatchewan in a time when people knew how to entertain themselves. In community halls and one room schools he learned the ropes from the players who pioneered the genre. Mona spent 17 years traveling with her family band in Canada, USA and Europe playing music on the streets, in bars and restaurants, for weddings and small festivals. Paul is a musician, teacher, composer and producer. Paul has written hundreds of fiddle tunes and loves to play them, especially for dancers. Together they bring a mix of fiddle tunes, old classics, Appalasian hoe down and Saskatchewan dance standards.
Rugged Little Thing
Saskatoon’s Rugged Little Thing blends together a perfect cocktail of Old Time, Bluegrass, and Folk Music that feels like home. Born out of kitchen jams and late nights by campfires in Canada’s north, these two have fallen into sweet harmonies and catchy rhythms that are sure to get your toes tapping.
