A concert with musical duo The Great Plains takes place Friday, Sept. 20 at Gladwin Heights United Church (3474 Gladwin Rd.) in Abbotsford.

They delight their audiences with tales about grain elevators, war brides, patchwork quilts, and history makers such as Louis Riel and David Thompson.

They also share tender songs about their spiritual journey or break into Swiss yodeling, and sing in Gaelic, Dutch, German and French.

The Great Plains is a veteran touring act with an easy, crowd-friendly style that instantly endears them to any audience – a taste of Celtic, a dab of bluegrass and a touch of old-time country, all wrapped around beautiful melodies.
