Derina Harvey back for Watrous series

The Watrous Area Arts Council wrapped up concert number three for their Organization of Saskatchewan Art Councils Concert (OSAC) Series with Derina Harvey taking the stage on Feb. 9 in Watrous.

Laura Foulds, advertising committee head for the performing arts with the Watrous council, says that everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Edmonton based group with their east coast sound.

“I love her powerhouse voice, she’s a lot of fun. She’s got an east coast lilt in her voice and she kept on calling us, ‘her darlins’.”

The bands set list also had people jumping with songs like What Do You Do With A Drunken Sailor, Rattlin’ Bog, and the Saskatchewan favourite, Last Saskatchewan Pirate, as well as original music written by Harvey.

The group has logged 120 performances in the last two years, says their website, including tours around Western Canada, Newfoundland, the Northwest Territories, and some shows in the United States.

According to their website, “2017 has seen the group expand their touring footprint due to several successful showcases across Western Canada in 2015 and 2016.”

This is the second leg of the Derina Harvey Band’s Saskatchewan tour with shows in late November and early December before returning at the beginning of February to hit up some more Saskatchewan dates before returning again in April.

The Derina Harvey Band OSAC 2017-2018 tour will make 19 stops throughout the province, which included one in Wadena on Dec. 2 for the Quill Plains Regional Arts Council.

In Watrous, Foulds says that 150 people came out to see the show, which is a good-sized crowd.
