Enjoy a heart-warming show filled with music, merriment, and mayhem as Saskia and Darrel deliver a fun blend of music, an unpredictable series of songs that change every time you see them. They delight their audience with tales about Grain Elevator, War brides, Patchwork quilts, and history makers such as Louis Riel and David Thompson. They will share tender songs about their own spiritual journey or break into Swiss yodeling, sing in Gaelic, Dutch, German or French.

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 folk all wrapped around extremely beautiful melodies.  They perform throughout all of Canada and Western Europe and have cultivated an immense following…… winning over their fans one town, one hall at a time.

For those who do not know Saskia and Darrel yet, come on down to meet them, they are very friendly. They are certainly no strangers to Whitecourt and are happy to be coming back for a fall concert.
