Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers

So this is it. You’ve been coming to the shows now for 35 years. I’ve got a bad shoulder from wearing instrument straps, Wayne has nearly killed himself in the woods twice… has a warning from his doctor! Ray was found on Western Brook pond floating in his boat aimlessly not realizing we had to be on tour the next day. All of this is to say we’re relaxing a bit. After writing 25 shows over 30+ years, creating a catalogue of more than 400 individual pieces of music and humour, we don’t create like we used to. The kids are grown up and independent and now the grandchildren have arrived so we’re less vital to the progress of humanity. So, in putting this show together there was only one thing to do… draw on our laurels, rip the past for decent material and see if we could recreate a show that looks like us in the 90’s, back when men wore jumpsuits and headbands, listened to Eddie Van Halen for meaningful lyrics, Madonna made her debut, Michael Jackson did Thriller and people watched MTV. Sure, we’ll have a few new pieces, who doesn’t. We’re turning the cart around though; in our last tour we got into heavy stuff, Blues, Rock; two tours ago it was Hip-Hop. If that was progress we’re afraid of our future, so we gotta get back to our roots. Pure zaniness, frivolous novelty, simple folk songs, lovely ballads and traditional Newfoundland music. See you at “The Theatre”.

The Once

Multi-award winning folk trio The Once, based out of St. John’s Newfoundland, features the lead vocals of Geraldine Hollett, along with vocalist-instrumentalists Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale. The a capella harmonies of the trio, mixed with a varied selection of instrumental accompaniment help to create a mix of original and traditional Maritime music, foot stomping shanties, and heart rendering ballads. Their latest album Time Enough is described as their most vulnerable and honest material to date. Their songs have been featured in international film and television, have had millions of hits with their YouTube videos and accumulated an array of nominations and trophies from the ECMA, Canadian Folk, and JUNO Awards throughout the years. www.theonce.ca
