Doug Baker and Blaine Hrabi

Doug Baker was raised in a musical family and took up the guitar at age 13. Solo and in various groups, Doug has performed in churches, coffee shops, folk clubs, festivals and private parties. Currently, he takes part in jams whenever time allows, plays in a number of duos, trios and quartets, and hosts a very popular open mic session.

Blaine Hrabi has musical roots in bluegrass and country and, after moving to PEI in 1980, soon became immersed in Celtic and Maritime music. Since moving to Alberta about 7 years ago, he has connected with local musicians and has performed at the Rocky Mountain Folk Club, the Water Valley Celtic Festival, and at local open mics in town.

Doug (guitar, whistles, bass) and Blaine (guitar, mandolin, mandola, and harmonicas) teamed up at an open mic awhile ago and realized their vocal and instrumental talents blended well so have been playing and performing together since. Their music draws from Celtic, folk and country traditions to create a repertoire of music that makes audiences laugh, feel and hopefully sing along.
