Belle Plaine in concert at Ghostown Blues Bed & Breakfast, Maple Creek, Saskatchewan. Belle Plaine, lead singer; Jeremy Sauer, drummer; Elizabeth Curry, bass player.
"Up north, I didn't have any vices except music," says Ghostown Blues owner Greg Hisey. "Edmonton and those towns are just ripe with amazing talent. So, CKUA radio out of Alberta was what I listened to 24/7 and they promote Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba artists, up-and-coming brilliant artists, and I started following them and befriending them and, man, I wanted to do that at this place!"
Greg books acts until October each year.
"Once people start to understand the caliber of talent -- you just know that if it's here, it's gonna be good."
"It's a passion of mine. I like the artists. I enjoy the music. That's what sustains me up north in camps."
