On January 13th, the NBCMS presented the Bix Mix Boys 

The Bix Mix Boys

Their website, www.thebixmixboys.ca descibes them as:

The Bix Mix Boys, from Edmonton Alberta, are one of Canada's hottest bluegrass bands. With exceptional music combined with an entertaining stage show, The Bix Mix Boys know how to put on a show. Whether it's singing original songs about Alberta and Canada or hearing the twin fiddles of Terry and Tony, you'll be hooked.

 

"I had always admired Darcy's banjo playing and was pleased to learn that he is with a group of extraordinary musicians with Logan Sarchfield on guitar, Jim Storey on bass and Terry Nadasdi on mandolin. Their talents are perfectly suited together and their vocals and musicianship compliment one another."
