Old-time music by young Canadian guns

CANADIAN old-time music outfit the All Day Breakfast Stringband is coming to Kyogle.

The All Day Breakfast Stringband, based in Montreal, features Max Evans on fiddle, Matt James on banjo, Andrew Kobus on mandolin, and Dara Weiss on guitar.

The young musicians honed their skills playing music from southern and Midwestern USA in the wilderness of Quebec and Ontario.

They won the Traditional Band Award at the Appalachian Stringband Festival in Clifftop, West Virginia, for two years in a row, in 2013 and 2014.

After performing their first Australian shows at the Lost Highway Festival in Karuah, NSW, the band will stop in Kyogle for their only performance in this area, before heading to Far North Queensland.

The event will be hosted by local duo Watling & Bates, who will open the show with some original tunes.

Popular local band The Barkers Vale Brothers will be the support act, with The Marvellous Gareth Bjaaland taking the role of MC for the evening.

Pre-sale tickets are available online at trybooking.com/NWZA; or in-store at Macdades Homewares in Kyogle.

Children under 18 are welcome to attend for free, when accompanied by paying family members or guardians.

  • At the Kyogle Memorial Hall, Kyogle, on Tuesday, May 9, from 7pm. $25 adult / $20 concession.
