Free Admission Day at the WDM

Sunday, March 6th – 9 AM – 5 PM
Saskatoon Western Development Museum
2610 Lorne Avenue

Although our in-person event at the WDM is different than usual this year, we’re thrilled to bring you a FREE ADMISSION day with afternoon entertainment by The Whiskey Jerks!

Playing venues and festivals from Vancouver to Ottawa, along with regular rotation on CBC, CKUA, CFCR and numerous other community radio stations across Canada, Eastern Europe and the UK, The Whiskey Jerks have been entertaining audiences with a sound that is rife with originality, sweet vocal blends, and a distinct whiskey-soaked sensibility! The Whiskey Jerks came together when Gillian Snider, who no longer wanted to drink alone, felt it was time to expand upon her one woman accordiana show. After convincing the talented Anna Bekolay (violin), James Diakuw (clarinet), Sarah Scharf (clarinet and sax), Nevin Buehler (upright bass), Peter Abonyi (guitar) and Aidan Weiman (drums) to join her on her misadventure, The Whiskey Jerks soon began to create their own distinct niche, blending klezmer, rock, country-blues, gypsy-folk and jazz with clever lyrics, stories, and an honest prairie sound. They now have two full-length
albums under their belt – Neat (2014) and Baba Was A Bootlegger (2019) – and are featured on the CFCR & CJTR Got It Covered, Vol. 3 Compilation.
