Big Back Yard
The Group is One Acre. A guitar and Violin driven duo/ 4 piece from Langley and Abbotsford BC, Canada Mark Hildebrand plays guitar, mandolin and lap steel. Niki Wiebe plays violin, Darcy White on bass and Sam Heard on drums. These musicians, totally committed to their craft have forged a CD they are very proud of. Formed in the summer of 2010, One Acre started out as two solo musicians taking turns accompanying each other at various venues. They soon began to discern that their collaborations were taking on a life and sound of their own. Both artists were begotten in classical training, with extensive education and many hours devoted to that disipline. Mark eventually explored the rock and blues side of guitar, while Niki discovered the folk roots of the violin. In between there was... Practice, practice, practice. Perform. Practice. Perform and practice some more. And then Eric Clapton meets Alison Krauss. Their joint effort is producing music that tells stories and exposes the soul. They have been playing at all manner of events throughout the Lower Mainland, from coffee houses to corporate functions. Currently they are composing and recording an album that will showcase the outcome of serious study loosed upon joyful celebration. One Acre's combined musical experiences have landed them on a path they are pleased to travel. They invite you to join them on the journey...
