Live at The raven

Keith Dunn came out to the Raven last week and put together this video

bits of string

Kaia Nielsen and Mark Lebbell like to call their music Canadicana, drawing inspiration from non-traditional roots cover tunes. Their repertoire includes tales of trucks and trains, love lost and found, bears and leaf blowers, all held together with little bits of string. Together with Ken Dalgeish and Graham Walker, they make up the Bigger Bits of String Band, and always deliver an evening of harmony, humour and hipshaking grooves.

At the Coopers Green Hall in Halfmoon bay, 8 p.m. tickets at the General store or the Fawn Road Market, or on line here:
