About Willie Stratton - Halifax, NS
Willie Stratton's show comprises of stories, singin', and hot guitar pickin'. Willie works to preserve and promote the rich and nearly forgotten country music heritage of Atlantic Canada in his art; from local yodeling styles that haven't seen the airwaves since the time of the great Hank Snow, to the musical delivery and whit of Wilf Carter and Hal Lone Pine to name a few. With this musical history in tow, he and sideman Mike Thomas Kerr take these coveted music styles to new places with refreshing youthful energy, and a true and deep love for the craft.
Come on out and hoot n' hollar to the sounds of Willie's new record!
