The Snoring Sasquatch will host the Hard Ramblers, and Kacy Anderson and Clayton Linthicum on Aug. 14.

The Hard Ramblers are a high-energy outlaw bluegrass trio playing a collection of upbeat originals to off-the-wall traditional classics. This trio comes together to meld the sounds of traditional claw hammer banjo, with rockabilly bass and the unique stylings of flat-picking guitar. Add three-part harmonies, and you have one of the most musically distinct sounds Canada has ever seen!

Collectively, they have circled the globe with their musical projects touring Europe and Canada. They joined forces in Swift Current, Sask., and are set to release their new album, Way On Down The Road, this summer. The band consists of Eliza Doyle on banjo, Paula McGuigan on bass and Jody Weger on guitar.

The added bonus of this concert is they are bringing Kacy Anderson and Clayton Linthicum.

“We first saw this duo when they opened for Ryan Boldt at the Creative City Centre in June,” said the Hard Ramblers. “They knocked our socks off!”

Cousins Anderson and Linthicum grew up immersed in ranching in the Wood Mountain Uplands of southern Saskatchewan, and were educated by Anderson’s grandpa/ Linthicum’s Great-Uncle Carl in the ways of rural music. Ranching and music are family traditions that can be traced back five generations.

Anderson and Linthicum draw influences from country blues, Appalachian ballads and other folk styles, and include a variety of artists from blues greats like Robert Johnson and Howlin’ Wolf to Davy Graham, Mississippi John Hurt, Leadbelly, and Hank Williams.

They have written their own material and have adapted traditional numbers.

In June, their self-titled debut record was released on Dahl Street Records. Their combined years of performing separately or together from a young age have given them an especially comfortable stage presence. The marriage of Anderson’s angelic voice and Linthicum’s eclectic guitar stylings make this duo unforgettable.

The doors open at 7:30 p.m.; the show starts at 8:30. Advance tickets are $10, available at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, or $12 at the door.
