Steve Fisher Band
The Foothills Bluegrass Music Society is proud to bring you the Steve Fisher Band and the Sadies Ghost

Steve Fisher

I grew up in a small village in southern Ontario called Sharon about thirty-five miles northeast of Toronto. Saxophone was my first instrument but I started playing guitar after high school while working in a bush camp in northern Ontario. I learned a few chords that summer but didn't really start to play tunes until after I went to university in London, England in 1976. A friend played me a recording of "Stack O'Lee" by Mississippi John Hurt and I was totally knocked out by it. I was amazed by how much sound you could get out of an acoustic guitar. Over the next three years I taught myself to play a few rags and some country blues with the help of recordings from Stefan Grossman's Kicking Mule Records. One of my favourites was a ragtime guitar sampler called "The Entertainer" featuring Bob Evans and Jim McLennan. I listened to these guys as much as I could. It was pretty heady stuff and way beyond what I could play at the time. Some of it still is!

Sadie's Ghost

Sadies Ghost is and Americana string band from across Alberta including:

Amber-Lynn on mandolin and guitar
Toby Tellier on bass and clawhammer banjo
Hannah Goa on fiddle and guitar

Together they bridge bluegrass and old-time and folk music at times delivering rough-hewn hootenanny, at times spinning delicate haunting songs. Exploring
new arrangements to their favourite time-cherished tunes, and throwing in a few sweet originals.
