CRAIG BIGNELL

Banjo/Drums

Craig, the quintessential artist, rarely ever speaks of his accomplishments which include multiple CCMA award nominees and winner of CCMA's Drummer of The Year, Special Instrument Of The Year (banjo), and Back Up Band Of The Year. Not just a great player, since the mid-nineties Craig has been the music director for, multiple Juno Award winning, Susan Aglukark, using a unique blend of traditional drum kit and world percussion to recreate her beautiful CD's for live performances. Craig also formed the acoustic folk duo Over The Moon with his wife Suzanne Levesque of The Travelling Mabels fame. Craig's creative genius and musical approach to banjo have found him at home in the Blake Reid Band where he continues to apply his trade with his friends and like-minded artists.
