The High Quadra Ramblers (Victoria) are Mack Shields on fiddle and vocals and Kaitlin Chamberlin on banjo, vocals and stepdancing: a powerhouse duo keeping the magic of traditional music alive. They are doing ambitious things with appalachian oldtime, translating traditional celtic into clawhammer banjo rhythms and taking inspiration from cajun, métis and classical to create original music. Their compositions range from high energy instrumentals to beautiful lyrical folk songs. Hailing from the East and the West, the influence of both coasts can be heard in the driving rhythm and intricate melodies of their music.
Since appearing on the West Coast music scene a year ago, they have been very active – they’ve completed 3 tours, played in Canada and the US, released their debut album and 2 EPs with another album on the way, and have had their music commissioned for a film soundtrack (www.risenshinethemovie.com). The short film has since won 7 awards including Best Sound Design at the Independent Shorts Awards in LA.
~~~~~~~BENJAMIN WOODS (vancouver)~~~~~~~~~
Ben’s style of music varies widely from song to song, as he has a low threshold for monotony.
Ben is a channeller and a folk grunge king.
His debut album features the 3 genius brothers Mack Shields, Gabe Pinchbeck and Ari Jonsson. His live performance is to be reckoned with.
