Blenders will host a unique Saskatchewan songwriters circle on Saturday, March 19, at the Lyric Theatre.


The featured artists will be Jason Plumb, Danny Olliver, and Megan Nash. 
The circle will be lead by former Waltons frontman, Jason Plumb. With 25 years under his belt, the Regina-based singer and songwriter has amassed an impressive body of work that has taken him across Canada and around the world. Winning a Juno, gold-selling records, and doing major tours with the Barenaked Ladies and Blue Rodeo have all contributed to his longevity.
Plumb has consistently created music that is accessible and unique, identifiable, and pop-friendly with edgy honesty.
He engages his listener and rewards them for their faithfulness by keeping audiences spellbound with soulful performances. It’s not surprising he has been embraced by Canadian audiences and acclaimed by the industry and his peers.
Joining Plumb will be, Danny Olliver a singer/songwriter from Regina, who got his start on a three string Yamaha he discovered in the back alley near his home.
A fast learner, he quickly added three more strings, and transitioned into writing his own music.
Inspired by guitarists such as Don Ross, Antoine Dufour, and Andy Mckee, Olliver began writing primarily acoustic pieces. His beginnings as a fingerstyle guitarist gave him a unique edge when he added vocals to his first stage performances in 2008.
His music tells a story, both in instrumental melody and in the lyrics. Complex acoustic guitar accompanies a smooth, pure voice that seems to effortlessly reach falsetto or soar into crescendo at all the right times.
Rounding out the circle is Megan Nash, a Canadian singer songwriter based in rural Saskatchewan. She combines an honest portrayal of her human experience with a powerful voice to create a moving performance.
Nash has opened for the likes of Serena Ryder, Amelia Curran, The Heartbroken, and Del Barber. She has toured the majority of Canada including the Northwest Territories.
Nash’s country background in evident in her current style but her songs are heavily influenced by artists such as Neko Case and Stevie Nicks.
These three wonderful artists will be at the Lyric Theatre on March 19 to showcase their amazing talents. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 8:30 p.m.  Tickets are $30 and are available at Pharmasave.
