Jess Reimer, Osmond-Davis Band Play Bluegrass Night
Winnipeg, MB – Come in out of the cold and warm up to the sunny bluegrass sounds of The Osmond Davis Band, Jess Reimer & Jeremy Hamm, and Double the Trouble at Winnipeg’s West End Cultural Centre on February 4.
The Osmond-Davis Band
In a place as flat as their prairie home, The Osmond-Davis Band ensure mountain music thrives by keeping that Appalachian connection with their southern neighbours. Guitar flat picker Simon Davis and 5 string banjo/dobro player Tim Osmond sing a repertoire of music from the likes of the Stanley Brothers, Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs and other traditional and contemporary bluegrass standards.
Jess Reimer & Jeremy Hamm
There is no denying that an artist is a reflection of their environment, and the harsh beauty of rural Manitoba is at the heart of Jess Reimer’s work. Be it snowed-in, wool-wearing imagery or dirt under your nails, ‘sweating through the yellow silk’ summer feel, the extremes and heartiness of Manitoba are in Reimer’s songs. Jeremy Hamm is a muti-instrumentalist and luthier. The sound that comes out of the two of them together showcases their many years of performing with one another and their unique experiences in the Manitoba prairies, both frozen and flourishing.
Double the Trouble
Luc and Aidan Wrigley are 12-year-old identical twin fiddlers. They are backed by their dad on guitar and perform traditional Metis Fiddle music along with some of their favourite contemporary songs by groups such as the Duhks, Bedouin Soundclash and Mumford & Sons.
