Aaron Young / Denis Dufresne back with ‘GhostBoy’
Feb 24, 2017 7:00 pm| $10
Aaron Young and Denis Dufresne of ‘GhostBoy’ are bringing their unique and very fresh musical genius back to the stage at Strand’s Old House Restaurant! For all of you who missed the show last September, now is the time to make your reservation! You really don’t want to miss these guys.
GhostBoy is the official new group of former PEAR frontman, Denis Dufresne. The Calgary-based band skillfully combines the traditional Roots music you love with a bit of Bluegrass, some Celtic and even a dash of rock and pop here and there.
Denis Dufresne is a 7-time CCMA winner for fiddler and special instrument of the year. Do you remember the world-famous fiddle sensation ‘Barrage’? Denis was part of the original cast that traveled the world, making headlines for five years. You might have been one of the tens of millions who watched their live debut concert on PBS. (you can find their concerts on video at Amazon). Today, as well as delighting audiences as part of GhostBoy, Denis plays fiddle, mandolin, guitar and does vocals for many of Canada’s top country and folk bands.
Aaron Young was also part of that original Barrage cast that took the world by storm. He is a composer, singer and songwriter. He is also one of the original Polyjesters and is known as one of Canada’s top guitarists, with a strong background in roots/fingerstyle, folk, blues, country, rock, & jazz music. Watch his fingers fly so fast and smooth you can barely see them as they provide just what the song needs when it needs it.
