Song of the Prairies, a concert with Darrel and Saskia, is coming to Chase.

On Thursday, Sept. 13, Darrel Delaronde and Saskia, also known as the touring band of Gary Fjellgard, will come to the Chase Creekside Seniors Centre, across from the legion, at 7:30 p.m. They bring a wonderful collection of songs with folk, roots, Celtic and country flavour, along with fabulous harmonies and stunning musicianship.

The fact that Saskia & Darrel often tour with Canadian music icon Gary Fjellgaard speaks volumes about their abilities as musicians and song writers. Fjellgard is well known throughout the music industry as being very “fussy” about his sound and the integrity of his show. This dedication to excellence is one of many lessons learned by this dynamic duo from their years on the road with him.

On their own, they are a powerful presence in their field; winning Top 5 people’s choice awards, hitting the #4 spot on MSN Radio’s National Top 30 Countdown, and being nominated for Album of the Year, Aboriginal Artist of the Year (times three), as well as Songwriter of the Year in Saskatchewan. Saskia and Darrel remain a perennial favorite on the Indy Euro stations. Their music is blithely described as “Prairie Roots.”

Tickets are available at the door for $10. For more information, call Denise at 250-577-3857. Partial proceeds to support the seniors centre.
