For those who’ve never seen one of their concerts, The Kettle Valley Brakemen are heritage entertainers and what they do is unique. A Brakemen show is a series of brief stories and original songs about B.C.’s colourful steam rail history. The songs either complete or complement the stories. Each performance finishes with a couple of singalong numbers so audiences get…a slice of B.C. rail history, a concert of folk/bluegrass music AND the chance to participate. Okanagan Life Magazine has described The Brakemen by saying “Every concert is a rollicking history lesson”. The band was featured in the autumn 2009 “Heritage Music” edition of Canadian Folk Music Magazine and in 2012, Castanet music critic Bruce Atkinson said, “A vastly talented group of musicians, The Kettle Valley Brakemen are a ‘must see’ ensemble! They bring back a period of our history in story and song, a fantastic way to learn about our heritage.”
