Prairie sweethearts, co-writers and crib opponents Belle Plaine and Blake Berglund are hitting the road again from BC to SK in late November into early December. Belle and Blake have merged the distinct styles that define their careers. She’s a modern day folk singer with a touch of 1940s swing. He’s a twangy storyteller who’s influenced by the outlaws of country music. Think Johnny and June, with a touch of Joni and The Band. Their live show is a classic double-bill with a twist: Belle and Blake will each perform a set of their own material, and will come together to close the night with a selection of duets including “Town to Town” and “Saskatchewan” from their 2015 vinyl release, Kris Kristofferson’s “Chase The Feeling”, Ian & Sylvia’s “Summer Wages” and the crowd favourite “Mercury Blues” which was originally released in 1952 by K.C. Douglas. They will be joined by guitarist, Bryce Lewis.
“Belle Plaine and Blake Berglund are the epitome of sincerity. Unarguably talented in their own right, together, the chemistry is truly remarkable.” Del Barber
