Spinney Brothers
Celebrate Mother's Day at Belleville Church with a Bluegrass Concert and BBQ Dinner!

Allan and Rick Spinney, who call Wolfville, Nova Scotia home, have been at the forefront of the Atlantic Canadian acoustic music scene for well over a decade. Along with band mates Gary Dalrymple and Darryl Hebb, the Spinneys are one of the busiest bluegrass bands in all of Canada. The Canadian duo keeps a very active touring schedule. In the last twelve months they have taken their music from coast to coast in both Canada and the United States. This past October the Spinneys performed in Nashville at the International Bluegrass Music Associations World of Bluegrass Convention. They were the only Canadian band to participate and represented their home country with great pride. They are quickly becoming recognized as Canada's "International Bluegrass Band".

The Spinney Brothers have garnished an industry reputation as being top notch professionals. Attention to detail has brought an impression list of performance opportunities. They have shared the stage with county music star Ricky Skaggs, the Grammy-nominated Cherryholms, and Grand Ole Opry legend Del McCoury.

The Spinney Brothers were recently recognized for all their hard work, as they were nominated in five categories at the Eastern Canadian Bluegrass Awards show in Truro, Nova Scotia. If this wasn't enough, the Spinneys received the honor of their careers in September as they were inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame, with the likes of Hank Snow, Wilf Carter and Anne Murray.
