The Northern Lights Bluegrass and Old Tyme Music Society is going to be in Cabri on Jan. 28th as part of an Old Time Music and Dance tour that is travelling across Saskatchewan.
The tour will conduct workshop sessions with students at Cabri School during the day, and will perform an evening concert at the Cabri Senior's Centre.
The tour features four of the best old time musicians on the Canadian music circuit, led by Gordon Stobbe, a multi-instrumentalist who is in high demand at fiddle camps across Canada and a great teacher, entertainer, music historian and square dance caller.
He is joined by Karrnnel Sawitsky, a dynamic fiddle player, recording artist and composer who is Saskatchewan’s most decorated fiddler. Also in the group is Winnipeg's Daniel Koulack, an amazing multi-instrumentalist that has released two Juno-nominated solo albums.
Rounding out the four-piece group is Jake Charron from Ontario, one of Canada’s finest piano and guitar players who is well known as an accompanist and travels around the world sharing the stage with fiddle greats.
The Old Time Music and Dance tour is funded in part by the Saskatchewan Arts Board's Culture on the Go program and is one of the ways the Northern Lights Society helps to keep "prairie heritage music" alive.
The event promises to be a memorable evening of musical entertainment. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at the Cabri Seniors Centre. Tickets are $10 for adults and $ for children, or $20 for a family.
