The Bix Mix Boys
February 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Opener – Cathy Hawley
Since 2006, the Bix Mix Boys goal has been to bring together a broad influence of music from each band member to create a unique, Canadian bluegrass sound. We are devoted musicians, concentrating both on exceptional instrumentation and precise vocal harmonies. Our ultimate goal is to entertain. We believe in providing the total package of high-quality music with an entertaining stage presence. We strive to achieve that intimate engagement with the audience, regardless if the audience is 10 or 10,000.
We are devoted to promoting bluegrass in Alberta and the rest of Canada. We host Prairie Pickin,’ a bluegrass radio program on CJSR, 88.5 FM in addition to hosting a Facebook site informing those in Alberta of upcoming bluegrass events.

Logan Sarchfield – Logan Sarchfield is the newcomer to the Edmonton bluegrass scene, and arrived in 2005 from Millbrook, New Brunswick. In Millbrook, at the age of 14, he started working in a music store, which further fuelled his obsession with the guitar. In addition to playing music, Logan is interested in the art of lutherie and has recently learned how to build mandolins.
Terry Nadasdi – Terry is a veteran of the Edmonton music scene where he’s known as both a singer-songwriter and a talented side-musician. He started playing guitar at the age of six, and plays ragtime guitar and acoustic finger-style blues in the tradition of John Hurt and Bill Broonzy in addition to mandolin. Terry may be recognizable to some as Professor Nadasdi from the Linguistics department at the University of Alberta.
Tony Michael has been playing fiddle, mandolin and singing with various artists for more than 20 years, such as The Bellamy Brothers, Jo-El Sonnier, Ian Tyson, kd land, The Dillards and many more. Tonys passion for music has enabled him to learn to perform a wide variety of musical styles including country, bluegrass, celtic, folk, blues, and jazz.
Jim Storey – Jim’s first instrument was a Hawaiian steel guitar. That led to a turn with the blues before turning to bluegrass. He plays guitar, banjo, mandolin and fiddle as well as upright bass. Jim is also one of the founding members of Edmontons Northern Bluegrass Music Circle Society and has played on-stage with some of Canadas best musicians over the years.
