Prairie sweethearts: Roots Artist of the Year at the 2013 Saskatchewan Country Music Awards

Events on deck at Haney

September: Concert, harvest celebration coming up.

  • Sep. 2, 2015 5:00 a.m.

R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum is proud to present Prairie sweethearts, Belle Plaine and Blake Berglund in concert on Thursday, Sept. 10.

The Grant MacEwan alumna jazz singer and cowboy songwriter don’t only complement each other vocally, but their onstage chemistry is infectious.

They have individually released numerous studio albums, toured nationally and developed brands recognized industry wide, while always staying true to their Saskatchewan roots.

Belle and Blake will release their limited edition, double/single take on two Zachary Lucky-penned tracks on Friday, Sept. 4.

The production of their ’70s inspired seven-inch vinyl was overseen by Jason Plumb and recorded at CBC Studio One in Regina, Saskatchewan.

Belle and Blake are spending the month of September on the road promoting their first vinyl release.

The duo’s unique style is a result of amalgamating their bands. Jeremy Sauer (keys) and Elizabeth Curry (bass) are Belle Plaine’s regular sidemen, and split musicianship duties with Berglund’s Vultures, Steve Leidal (drums) and Bryce Lewis (electric guitar).

The sound is a soulful twang.

Lead and harmony vocals are traded with ease, and complement both Berglund and Plaine’s respective styles.

Tickets for Belle Plaine and Blake Berglund in concert, may be purchased by calling 250-836-2226.
