Saskia and Darrel; The Great Plains.
Award winning Canadian Folk Duo Saskia and Darrel LOVE what they do and it shows in every song they sing. They have an easy, crowd-friendly style that instantly endears them to any audience. This is "real" Canadian Music, woven around exquisite melodies, drenched in our culture and heritage delivered in comfortable highly skilled sets with oodles of self-poking humor. Enjoy a taste of Celtic, a dab of Bluegrass, Country, and some toe tapping favorites. Warning... there might be some yodelling...
They perform throughout all of Canada and Western Europe and have cultivated an immense following, winning over their fans one town, one hall at a time.
How do others feel about a concert with the Great Plains?
"We are so glad your "walking shoes" brought you to Montgomery Place tonight. You connect so well with your audience through the words you write and sing. You sing of roads and journeys, trains and elevators, lands that shape us, and of gratitude, faith and love. Just like in your elevator song where the grain pours out like "liquid gold", your songs pour out over the audience like "liquid gold". Until we meet again, we'll "keep the porch light on".
