The Vaudevillian

They may only be in their twenties, but they're a trio that looks as though they have stepped out an historical photo of 'Ozark Mountain' musicians and their sound is reminiscent of a time when rag-time and hill-country music swept early America.

The Vaudevillian is made up of three very talented, high-energy musicians ... lead Brendan J. Stephens, Norah Spades and Guy 'Piedmont' Johnson, who interact with exceptional timing.

They are buskers in the old-fashioned sense of the word who have only been together for a year.

Busking an old art form

Stephens, lead singer, plays guitar that he occasionally twirls along with the odd whistling while Spades, a former drummer, plays a 'mean' washboard and adds a little kazoo and foot stomping.

Johnson, originally from North Carolina, plays the upright bass and banjo rounding off the talents trio.

From New Orleans to Saugeen Shores, the Hamilton-based trio has played farmers' markets, pubs, festivals and flea markets.

In Saugeen Shores, they played at the Port Elgin Flea Market over the summer and again at the Pumpkinfest festival.
