The Great Plains - Folk Music On Vancouver Island


To our friends, our fans and music lovers from everywhere; this is Saskia & Darrel's new website, with a new band name, and a new attitude about our music, who we are, and what we do.

We have made so many friends and fans over the last ten years, sweet people who loyally buy our latest cd's, who follow us online, and pay money to come to our shows, that we feel a huge responsibility to them. And indeed; without you believing in us, we wouldn't be playing music at all.

So our new outlook on our music is this; we are simply going to write, record, and perform the very best music we possibly can, for you; the people whom we love and like and to whom we are responsible.

"The Great Plains" is merely a name; something to appease the trending styles dictated by the music industry, festival producers, and venue hosts. We're still the same old Saskia & Darrel.

We wish for everyone a great new year and if our music touches your heart and soul in some way; then we are doing our job!

Thank you for sharing some time with us. Gratefully yours, Saskia and Darrel.
