Event Archive - Fabulous Folk Concert with Saskia and Darrel: The Great Plains, Saskia and Darrel

Sat. February 1st 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00PM doors at 6:30 PM00 PM @  Holy Trinity Church Sooke BC (All Ages) 7:00 PM - 9:00PM doors at 6:30 PM00 PM
$10 at the door only.
Presented by: Dave Gallant
Experience a heart-warming show of music, merriment, and mayhem, as Saskia and Darrel delight their audience with tales about history makers such as Louis Riel, and David Thompson, songs about war brides, miners, and love and daily life in rural Canada, then surprisingly break into some fabulous blues, or sing in Gaelic, Dutch, German or French. They bring adroit skills on guitar, mandolin, bass, and pennywhistle to the mix.

Saskia & Darrel are practicing spiritualists, long distance hikers, and part-time vegetarians. In their long and speckled careers they have been incarnated as loggers, fire-camp cooks, real estate aide-de-campes, and gandy-dancers. Ultimately, despite the better advice of their children, their love of music won out and they escaped reality by promising each other that they could sustain a life-style by touring the world and playing folk music. And so they did.

Great Plains are a veteran touring act; with an easy, crowd-friendly style that instantly endears them to any audience. This is true Canadiana; real songs drenched in our culture and heritage delivered in comfortable highly skilled sets with oodles of self-poking humor. A taste of Celtic, a dab of bluegrass, and lots of engaging stories wrapped around extremely ear-wormy melodies.

They perform throughout all of Canada and Western Europe and have cultivated an immense following across Canada & Europe, winning over their fans one town, one hall at a time.
