Join us Thursday, March 14th, 2019 at the Fernie Distillers for this incredible roots music experience! Oliver the Crow is Ben Plotnik and Kaitlyn Raitz creating their own blend of vocal, fiddle, and cello music in a genre-bending package that is rooted in history but with a definite eye on the horizon.
Kaitlyn and Ben’s chameleon-like ability to skip between genres stems from their roots as classically-trained performers (Kaitlyn has a masters degree in classical cello from McGill University and Ben has performed as a soloist with the Calgary Philharmonic) but also from their love of bluegrass, gypsy jazz, everything from Hank Williams to Prince. Raitz is a founding member of folk duo Bride & Groom, tours with The Bombadils and has performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Station Inn. Ben is a primary member of the JUNO award-winning folk string quartet, The Fretless, and has contributed to hundreds of recordings as one of North America’s elite fiddle players.
