The Redhill Valleys with opener Teilhard Frost ~ Delta, ON

December 6 @ 7:00 pm

With powerful, earthy harmonies, rootsy guitar licks and timeless lyrics, The Redhill Valleys emerged with a force onto the Canadian music scene in 2016. The four-piece Americana alt-country group, whose name pays homage to their hometown of Hamilton, Ontario, is comprised of band members Chelsea McWilliams (Bass/Vocals), Tim Allard (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Danielle Beaudin (Guitar/Vocals), and Matt Soliveri (Drums). The band doesn’t shy away from nostalgia and pulls influence from artists such as Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Neil Young, The Band and Fleetwood Mac. After releasing their two-part EP, Travel Well, in 2022 The Redhill Valleys’ single “Anymore” garnered significant praise including winning first place in the American Songwriter Magazine lyric contest, and receiving regular airplay on SiriusXM’s North Americana, CBC Country, and Tom Petty Radio. Nominated for several awards, including “Best Group” and “Best Roots Artists” at the Country Music Association of Ontario Awards for three years in a row, the band has built a steady fanbase, extensively touring across Canada, with appearances on prominent stages including Boots and Hearts Music Festival, Big Sky Music Festival, Cavendish Beach Music Festival, along with visits to the US and the UK, including three shows as part of C2C: Country to Country 2024, Europe’s biggest country music festival.

Passionate about bringing music lovers together, they are also advocates for music accessibility and are involved in numerous programs that provide opportunities for education in Hamilton including AIFEC, Girls Rock Camp, and City Kidz. Now with the release of their latest single “Rhinestoned”, The Redhill Valleys show no signs of slowing down as they continue to develop their sound and grow their audience.

“An accomplished singer and multi-instrumentalist, Teilhard captures the spirit of old-time music better than anyone I know. He is a natural-born entertainer whose stage presence is a joyful experience!”
-Rick Ceballos, Artistic Director, Champlain Valley Folk Festival, Vermont, USA

Canadian multi-instrumentalist and instrument maker, Teilhard Frost specializes in traditional folk music with a focus on Appalachian old-time music. Growing up on Manitoulin Island, Teilhard was surrounded by fiddle tunes, old songs, farming life and the bush. At the age of three, he was given a harmonica by his father and his great-grandfather’s fiddle from his Mum. These instruments have taken him around the world since. Teilhard’s latest solo recording, ‘Four and Twenty Blackbirds Dancing on a Deer Skin’, is a collection of traditional music found in the Appalachian highlands, early-era banjo tunes, and harmonica songs. These days, Teilhard lives on Wolfe Island in the St. Lawrence River where he makes banjos, his supper and his bed.
