Taking their name from the cluster of galaxies containing the Milky Way, The Local Group (www.thelocalgroupsk.com) plays music of astronomical proportions. With their most recent album (Produced by Clayton Linthicum of Kacy & Clayton) released in June of 2022 via Grey Records, this young talented Saskatoon-based quartet puts their own unique spin on hard-driving traditional bluegrass, while seamlessly blending in their original songs and their passion for country, Celtic, and Canadiana. Featuring mandolin, bluegrass banjo, flatpicking guitar, and upright bass, The Local Group showcases hot instrument picking, tight 3-part harmonies, surprising arrangements, and an entertaining energy. Their show has been described as “tight and charmingly zany” and is guaranteed to take you out of this world!
Gigging regularly across the prairies for five years, they have played most everywhere you can imagine. From festivals such as Blueberry Bluegrass Festival, Ness Creek Music Festival, Northern Lights Bluegrass Festival and the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival to opening for Corb Lund in small town Cadillac, Saskatchewan to playing at the Remai Modern Art Gallery in Saskatoon. They have entertained at just about any other kind of show you can think of: house concerts, dive bars, schools, theatres, weddings and old-time dances (guitar player Elliot Dillabough moonlights as a square dance caller) . These festival favourites will be touring all throughout Western Canada this summer, making music and memories wherever they go.
They're also bringing along Manitoba traditional country singer/songwriter/recording artist Bobby Dove (www.bobbydove.com) to open for their Camrose show.
Camrose you're in for a real treat at The Bailey Theatre.
