Meridian Line - Cookhouse Concert Series


About the band:

This is Meridian Line, an Edmonton-area musical trio with a unique sound and presence that was formed in 2011. They love to ‘twist’ familiar pop, folk, and rock songs from the last few decades into memorable interpretations.

That’s them in the picture. From left to right they are: Rik Cormier, Ian Bowden, and Rick Diesbourg. (Yep, they have two “ricks” in the trio! I bet that gets confusing sometimes!)

Contact us at The Cookhouse for more information – 780-785-3494. You can find more information here regarding the buffet supper option.

Whitemud Drive
October 13, 2018

About the band: Whitemud Drive (WMD) is an Edmonton, Alberta based 5 piece acoustic band originally formed in 2013. The band members have a diverse background in music including everything from classical, to orchestral, to folk, to country, to pop  and just about everything in between.  What brings the 5 members together is a common passion for playing traditional, country and bluegrass music in their unique modern style .

Whitemud Drive performs using the traditional instrumentation of guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, dobro and bass.  They put a modern and refreshing spin to their songs that audiences love using creative arrangements & layered harmonies.  

The band’s vision is to bring their diverse song selections, played using traditional acoustic bluegrass instrumentation, to Alberta audiences of all types and ages.  Nothing pleases the group more than hearing from audience members how much they enjoyed their unique approach and musical style.
