Bluegrass/old-time music coming to the Gog

Mike Klein is a Saskatoon musician specializing in bluegrass and old-time music. He plays mandolin, claw-hammer banjo and fiddle. He is on a road to get his first full-length album funded and produced and a Oct. 27 show at the Gog in North Battleford will help him out.

Klein is a great player and would be worth the ticket price alone. However, he has a fantastic roster of musician friends that will be joining him for this show.

Rugged Little Thing has played the Gog a couple of times before and those who have seen them can attest to the amazing music that Jille and Ryan Shotten perform. Jille is mostly on banjo and Ryan's primary instrument is guitar. But they switch it up a bit to keep it interesting. They are fantastic musicians as well as singer/songwriters.

Paul Gitlitz is somewhat of a musical legend in Saskatoon. Another multi-instrumentalist, playing fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bass and banjo, he has written more than 300 fiddle tunes, produced three dozen albums and is a much sought after music teacher.

Nicola Tabb is a standout stand-up bass player. Known primarily for her work with The Chickadees, you will also find Nicola behind her bass playing with lots of other friends in and around Saskatoon. This is when she is not behind the counter at her cool Better Off Duds vintage store on 33rd Street in Saskatoon.

So, this is like a bluegrass/old-time music super group coming right here to our community.
