Taking its name from the cluster of galaxies containing the Milky Way, the Local Group – Jaxon Lalonde (banjo/bass), Elliot Dillabough (guitar), Ethan Peters (bass), Justin Vilchez (mandolin), and Jake Vaadeland (banjo/guitar) – plays music of astronomical proportions. With roots in rural Saskatchewan, the trio puts a unique spin on traditional acoustic music, including bluegrass, Celtic, classic country, and Canadiana. Spotlighting hot banjo and guitar picking, tight harmonies, and a mixed bag of instruments including double bass, fiddle, harmonica, penny whistle, and triangle, the Local Group will take you out of this world on a rocket fuelled by pure folk music.
