Rob Dinwoodie is known for his love of the cowboy lifestyle, and that spills over into his song writing, music and entertaining. Accompanying Rob is accomplished guitarist Dixon Zalit who as Rob puts it "plays anything with strings on it". Dixon's sensitive playing on both guitar and mandolin are always a highlight of their show. Adding the dynamics of bass guitar and harmony vocals is Kevin Bader also from Vernon. Kevin is known for his song writing and vocal abilities and when on stage with the trio, Kevin melds his singing skills and musical abilities to enhance the rich sounds of modern "cowboy music". Rob calls the trio "Open Range" to denote the freedom in a cowboys life and music. Open Range is hard to nail down in terms of genre as the lyrics ride western, country, blues or swing music. With more than just a touch of humour, you'll enjoy this musical trio as they perform their original songs.

Winners of 2 BCIMA music awards, Blu & Kelly Hopkins are a song writing multi instrumentalist duo. Focusing on original material, their extensive repertoire lets them blend traditional and contemporary tunes into their show with a dash of humour to achieve an entertaining, exciting, yet mellow brew of good times good tunes! The couple are a bona fide channel for classic folk, roots and country. Blu demonstrates again and again a deep connection to the lyrics of the greats. Names like Stan Rogers and John Prine float over the campfire when he and Kelly bring their award winning talent to the party.
