Edmonton's longest running winter festival!


January 15, 2022

VelociTractor is Cretatious folk-rock; inspired by the idea that a giant asteroid never actually hit the planet and dinosaurs evolved to be the dominant species on Earth. The creative collaboration of four friends who played the same St. Patty’s gig 3 years in a row, hatched like a dino egg, and the aftermath of lightyears of musical experiences and a united love of Jurassic Park. Influenced by bluegrass, country, folk, and rock, you don’t have to be afraid of these friendly harmonies, outrageous lyrics, and Raptor-driven theme that is, VelociTractor.
VelociTractor is: Tiff Hall, Darryl Matthews, Shane Ducharme, Daniel Bourbonnais
