Rory Verbrugge & The Ruckus
Rollicking folk-rock from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Rory Verbrugge & The Ruckus play old-time music with a rock-and-roll spirit. Armed with a rich, rootsy sound, the ‘Ruckus invigorate prairie canadiana with rocking juke-joint blues, heartbreaking home-grown country and blistering bluegrass. Sure to put on a show, these prairie boys bring a mix of glitz and grit that make them a must-see.
Grandmothers Chesterfield is a folk/alternative group from Saskatoon, SK. Consisting of core members Amy Timm (vocals/mandoline) Olaf Lokken (cello) and Andrew Linsley (vocals/guitar), they have been frolicking through the Saskatoon music scene for the past three years, entertaining groups at coffeehouses, fundraisers and winning back scorned lovers from outside their bedroom windows at unreasonable hours of the night. The band name was inspired by an antiquated piece of furniture they happened to be sitting on while practicing.
