The Legacies are here... The Legacies rose from the ashes of Alberta Honky Tonks carrying on a three generation tradition of Metis and Country Rock music. I played with my Dad Jim, for over 20 years and my Mooshum Ralph was a fiddle player. My Dad and Preston's Dad Trevor, played together in the 80's and Preston and I started playing together in the late 90's. We were lucky enough for older musicians to take an interest in us and make space for us so we could develop as musicians. Don Lizotte is an old friend of my Dad's and kind of a music historian in the Red Deer Country music scene. Don has logged 1000's of hours of video's from jam sessions over the years. Don comes from a family of Fiddlers and performers. Brianna is Don's granddaughter and Preston and I have watched her grow up and become a real force on the fiddle. Brianna is proud of her metis heritage and works with kids taching them about metis Culture... and of course the Fiddle. Jacob is my Manager Leanne's son and is part of our music family. Jacob's Grandfather Louie, and Mom Leanne are both acomplished musicians and Jacob is eager to perform and carry on the Family tradition! The Legacies are a way for Preston and I to make space for the next generation and keep the Legacy alive! The Legacies blend traditional Metis fiddling with Outlaw Country attitude and will keep your feet stomping and hands clapping!!
