Well, just like you-we are trying to adjust the constant changes and opportunities presented to us in these unprecedented times. To lighten the load, and to give us a chance to play music, we have started a little LIVE FACEBOOK stream series every Saturday for our beloved mountain community in the Kootenays. It’s called theSaturday Quarantine Social and is co-hosted by the most wonderful Shred Kellyband (from Fernie as well).
ALL are welcome to join us…from the comfort of your own home! #stayhome
Just a little hello from the Redgirl HQ where we are lining up some gigs for 2019-2020. We have been busy with other musical ventures -Mike with the Doggone Brothers and Anie with Good Valley…but not quite as good about keeping our website up to date!
These days we are needing to keep it simple and playing mainly a ginger duo. We do love and miss our full band, but lives with houses, VWs, teens and family are showing us that simplicity is best!
Small is mighty though…and we are building on new songs and arrangements and looking forward to seeing you on a local stage! Watch our facebook page for upcoming events and gigs.
We are thrilled to be playing with some of fave peeps in the Kootenays this month. If you haven’t herd of the Fisher Peak Performing Arts Society..here is a chance to come to a concert and find out more. This event is a fundraiser for this nonprofit venture designed to bring more music into the East Kootenay. We will be sharing the bill with the fantastic Rosie Brown Band from Kimberley/Cranbrook. Hope you can come!
Here are the Details: March 28th
Royal Alexandra Hall, Cranbrook, BC
6:30pm Wine and cheese (Doors Open)
Tickets $15 for FPPAS members $20 for non members
Don’t miss this fantastic night of bluegrass at the Fernie Arts Station. We are thrilled to be opening for the Foggy Hogtown Boys (Toronto, Ont). Redgirl will be playing with Keith Larsen (Cranbrook) and Karl Summerfield (Creston, BC).

Saturday, June 8th Fernie Relay for Life (at the High School Track)
Well, we have regrouped and revived, and are now refreshed and ready to play some new tunes! For the Spring and Summer of 2013, Redgirl is giddy at the thought of returning to some of our former bluegrassy roots (form as the crow flies days), by adding to our repetoire: the clawhammer banjo (Anie), the mandolin (Mike) and Steve’s “new” 1953 Kay Upright Bass! We have have been a few playing tunes with the likes of Jenny Lester, Elena Yeung, even Jason and Pharis Romero. We have jammed on old-timey music in a variety of kitchens and decks here in Southern BC (even thought they feel new-timey to us), and we are coming up with some original pieces to bring your way.
We have high hopes of hitting a few festivals and Street Fairs, and might even return to the recording studio to see what kinds of material we can capture live! For now, we watch the snow fly, and hunker down to play scales, warm up our harmonies and, if we must, sip scotch.
