The Great Plains are coming to the Val Marie Hotel on Wednesday June 10 at 7:30 p.m., in a concert by the musical duo also known as Saskia and Darrel, sponsored by Val Marie’s provincially recognized ecomuseum Prairie Wind & Silver Sage.

Just back from a tour of Holland, The Great Plains: Saskia and Darrel provide a heart-warming evening of music, merriment, and mayhem, as the duo delights their audience with songs about history makers such as Louis Riel and David Thompson, songs about war brides, prairie elevators, quilting, miners, and love and daily life in rural Canada, then surprisingly break into some fabulous yodeling, or sing some fun, well-known traditional songs. Saskia and Darrel bring adroit skills on guitar, mandolin, bass, and penny whistles to the mix and tickets are $15 at the door.
Although The Great Plains: Saskia and Darrel currently live on the west coast, they are certainly no strangers to Saskatchewan where they lived for many years in Maymont and played up and down every hi-way and by-way with their highly entertaining show they call Song of The Prairies. Great Plains are a veteran touring act; with an easy, crowd-friendly style that instantly endears them to any audience. This is true Canadiana; real songs, drenched in our culture and heritage delivered in comfortable highly skilled sets with oodles of self-poking humor. A taste of Celtic, a dab of bluegrass, a touch of Country all wrapped around extremely beautiful and catchy melodies. The duo performs throughout all of Canada and Western Europe and have cultivated an immense following…… winning over their fans one town, one hall at a time.
