Gospel Mission (map)
Graham performs with his new Bluegrass band "The Trips" which features Jesse Padgett - banjo, shamma Sabir - fiddle, Joshua Smith - Guitar and Bass and Graham Ord - guitar and mandolin. This is a street party celebrating 35 years of Kelowna Gospel Mission. Held on Leon ave Kelowna with bands all afternoon all for a great cause.
I have been working with a great bunch of musicians in our town in the past few months and exploring Bluegrass music a bit which has been so much fun! We are writing some original tunes as well as taking some songs we all know and love and giving them a Bluegrass/Alt country treatment.
The band consists of Jesse Padgett on Banjo, Joshua Smith on guitar, Shamma Sabir of fiddle and yours truly on Guitar. Us three lads all play the upright between us too. Here’s a sample of some of the music we are exploring together. We recorded it at Bottega Farm Inn Studios in Kelowna and we just all played together and pressed record.
The Trips – Hallelujah I love her so.
