The Canterbury Historical Society is pleased to welcome back the Spinney Brothers, who are even better known now than when they first performed for us back in May of 2011. Since then they’ve released a highly successful album with Mountain Fever Records entitled Memories; toured widely in the U.S. and Canada; and in February, 2013, had the #1 single on the National Bluegrass Survey, "Memories" from their CD of the same title.

Spinney BrothersThe Spinney Brothers, known as "Canada's International Bluegrass Band," are from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. This past September, they were nominated for a prestigious International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) award in the Category of "Emerging Artist of the Year," and their star is clearly on the rise.
