Joseph Klyne

A professional guitarist by the age of 17, Joseph Klyne has had a successful music career for over 40 years. He first made his living playing lead guitar with various rock cover bands in Winnipeg Manitoba circa 1960. Joseph then developed his own “single” act in Edmonton in the early 70’s. In 1977 he moved to Saskatoon. In the mid 80’s his two sons joined and both took their turn playing bass and harmonizing to his exceptional singing and guitar playing. The J.R. Klyne duo performed throughout Saskatchewan into the early 90’s. Joseph’s guitar style is greatly inspired by Chet Atkins.

Grand Old Opry Zoomer Style – Meet the Paddlewheelers

Paddlewheelers

Wayne Salloum, Maurice Postnikoff and Doug Porteous came together fifteen years ago for a one time performance.  One thing led to another and the Paddlewheelers were born, a trio who have provided great entertainment in and around Saskatoon and Saskatchewan. Over time the Paddlewheelers added guitarist Evert Van Olst, base guitarist Jonathan Moore-Wright, and percussionist Brent Burlingham. Through guitar, voice, percussion and harp (harmonica) they have a great sound, breaking bread with the audience focusing on music of days gone by. The Paddlewheelers are truly grass roots Saskatchewan.
