For those who do not know Saskia and Darrel yet………..come on down to meet them…they are very friendly. They are certainly no strangers to Alberta as they have played up and down every hi-way and by-way with their friend Gary Fjellgaard as well as on their own with highly entertaining show they call; Song of The Prairies.
Enjoy a heartwarming show filled with music, merriment, and mayhem, as Saskia and Darrel deliver a fun blend of music. They delight their audience with tales about Prairie Elevator, Blue birds, War brides, Louis Riel, Patchwork Quilts, and then surprisingly will share a wonderful tender song about their spiritual journey then break into Swiss yodeling, or some wonderful old time music.

“Great Plains” are a veteran touring act; with an easy, crowd-friendly style that instantly endears them to any audience. This is real music; drenched in Canadian culture and heritage delivered in a comfortable highly skilled set with oodles of self-poking humor. A taste of old time, a dab of bluegrass, and lots of laughter wrapped around extremely beautiful melodies.
Bragg Section! They have toured extensively with Gary Fjellgaard and Valdy. They were awarded Top Folk Album in Holland; Artist, Album, and Songwriter of the year from SCMA, received Top 5 People’s choice awards, and have enjoyed many years airplay on CBC, CKUA and Top Indie folk/roots charts in Canada, the USA and Europe.
