The Prairie Travellers is a four-member band from Halbrite, Weyburn & Esterhazy Saskatchewan areas. They have been performing for 17 years for various types of functions from weddings, casinos, nightclubs, fairs etc.. Band members include Kelly Gill (lead guitar/keyboard/vocals), Neil Atkinson (bass guitar/rhythm guitar/banjo/mandolin), Wayne Honig (Hammond organ/piano/keyboard/vocals, and Garry Hughes (steel and rhythm guitars). Although their music is mostly a mixture of classic rock and country western, they are currently mastering a unique western style of writing that I have not heard until now.
The Prairie Travellers are proud to announce the release of their second CD titled"Summertime on the Prairies" with single "The Stranger" leading the way. The single tells a tale that is set in the old west where a sheriff who was shot in the back by a killer gunfighter comes back from the dead for revenge. The tale begins to be told that depicts a mysterious scene on the dusty road of a western town. The storyline was written like a movie script and was given life through an extraordinary signature western style of writing. The drums maintain that heartbeat and a 5-chord progression on guitar carries the tune right up to the end. It is delivered with such suspense and excitement; I pictured myself with a tub of popcorn sitting at the edge of my seat. The rendition of this single that is on this CD was an example of a song that was molded and re-molded over and over until it took on a life of its own.
This style of storytelling is one of many common threads you will experience in their music. It is the 'western style of telling stories' and no one does it better. One unique application is the use of a 5-chord progression with minors thrown in. Johnny Cash used this style of play. You can expect every song in their repertoire to reflect this very creative and adventurous sound.
"Summertime on the Prairies" is available in its physical format.
You can listen to and/or purchase songs from either their previous CD "Here's Hopin" or "Summertime on the Prairies"
The Prairie Travellers is currently working with A & R Select based in Beverly Hills, Ca. for licensing, publishing, a record deal and/or placement opportunities.
