An Evening with The Local Group and special guest Clayton Linthicum

Join us for a rare and intimate night of acoustic music featuring Saskatoon’s bluegrass boy band The Local Group, and singer-guitarist Clayton Linthicum of folk duo Kacy and Clayton.

Friends and bandmates since high school, the Local Group have crisscrossed western Canada, playing festivals including Blueberry Bluegrass Festival, Ness Creek, and the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, opening for Corb Lund in small town Cadillac, SK, and entertaining at just about any other kind of show you can think of: theatres, dive bars, schools, art galleries, house concerts, weddings, baby showers and old-time dances. The band comprises Elliot Dillabough on guitar, Jaxon Lalonde (also of Jake Vaadeland and the Sturgeon River Boys) on banjo, Ethan Peters on stand-up bass, fiddle and harmonica, Aussie import Justin Vilchez on mandolin and Olivia Morelli on fiddle. Following the release of their sophomore album Nero's Waltz last summer (produced by Clayton Linthicum) the Local Group continues to push the boundaries of their acoustic sound with creativity, skill, tight three-part harmonies and a good sense of humour. Their debut performance at the Broadway Theatre lands perfectly in the middle of a lengthy spring tour of Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC.

"The Local Group is not a group that tries to rehash the same old sound and style from days gone by. Don’t get me wrong, I love and appreciate that aspect of the genre as well. But, the guys in the Local Group are trying to do something more than that. They can play at blazingly fast tempos and create a wall of sound when they play bluegrass standards that are unmatched in this neck of the woods. More importantly, The Local Group also can mix up their sets with a dash of Celtic and Francophone numbers and they also serve up a heaping portion of original tunes too that prove to be folksy and accessible to those that may be not as familiar with bluegrass. In short, they deliver an exciting, fresh and exuberant take on the genre that has crossover appeal." - Scott Roos, North Saskatchewan Music Zine
