An entertaining duo will be in Maple Creek May 31 as part of a summer long tour. Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen will pay a visit to the Ghostown Blues.


Lyrically refreshing and musically diverse, since teaming up in 2013, this Canadian-American duo, now based in Santa Cruz, California, has toured the U.S. and Canada extensively, playing theatres, living rooms, festivals, including the definitive Winnipeg Folk Fest, and releasing three albums of their diverse and uplifting original material.
Frechette is considered to be one of Canada’s leading talents on acoustic guitar and harmonica, performing high-energy, entertaining, and soulful concerts throughout North America and Europe since 1992. A prolific songwriter (1,300 songs and counting), he penned the The Duhks’ hit singles, Mists of Down Below and You Don’t See It.
Thomsen is a genre-bending violinist, composer, and songwriter, who combines the tone and emotional range of classical training with a diverse palate of fiddle styles and acoustic genres.
Also a respected educator, writer, and podcaster, she has taught violin, viola, and fiddle since the tender age of 14.
 Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show about 7:30 p.m. $20 music by donation, all proceeds to artists. Bring your own beverages and snacks and minors are welcome to attend.
