The Stanfields are a Canadian rock music group, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Described by some sources as "the bastard children of AC/DC and Stan Rogers", the band blends a hard rock style with elements of traditional Atlantic Canadian folk music.

Formed in 2008, the band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Jon Landry, bassist Dillan Tate, guitarist Jason MacIsaac, bouzouki/fiddle player Calen Kinney, and drummer Mark Murphy. The band formed and started out by playing Rock, Folk, and Country music cover songs during open mic performances at the Seahorse Tavern in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They quickly gained local notoriety for their rowdy, entertaining live performances.  The band is known for its powerful live show, and have toured mostly in Canada and Germany.

Introducing the Saturday night Main Stage opening act: The Spinney Brothers!

The Spinney Brothers will be hitting the Main Stage here at the South Shore Exhibition on Saturday, July 30th at 7pm and opening for Emerson Drive!

From the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada, brothers Allan Spinney, on guitar and vocals and Rick Spinney on banjo and vocals, debuted their band in 1991. Known as Canada’s International Bluegrass Band, they featured a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. They went on to release 12 albums, including four very successful releases on Mountain Fever Records. These Mountain Fever recordings played a large role in the worldwide recognition that would follow. The brothers charted four number one hits, countless awards at the Eastern Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards, as well as nominations for three IBMA Awards, including Emerging Artist and Song of the Year. Live performances included such prestigious stages as Bill Monroe’s Bean Blossom Festival, Ralph Stanley’s Hills of Home Festival, Nashville’s Station Inn, and Merle Fest, to name a few.

Having never lost the love for the music, the Spinneys are thrilled to be in a position now to resume live performances. Although it will be at a drastically reduced pace compared to tour schedules in the past, still, the brothers are thrilled to be moving forward with The Spinney Brothers Bluegrass Band. Joining the brothers will be long time bandmates, Gary Dalrymple on mandolin and Terry Mumford on bass.
