Wendell Ferguson and Katherine Wheatley in concert

It's been said that when Wendell Ferguson and Katherine Wheatley play, one won't leave a dry eye in the house, while the other won't leave a dry seat.

Katherine Wheatley is a geologist by training and a performer by passion. Her songs are catchy without being sappy, and her experience in Canada's more wild climes and in Africa has fed the sense of adventure that any musician and writer needs. She's got two solo CDs to her credit -- "Straight Lines" and "Habits and Heroes" -- and is part of the Toronto group Betty and the Bobs, Wendell Ferguson's group The Smoking Section, and the Pomelos. She's appeared on almost any CBC program you can name and done tons of other work, and she's the public face of the "Give in a Heartbeat" campaign for the West Parry Sound Health Centre in her home town.

Wendell Ferguson has played with Katherine Wheatley for years, and has the rare combination of truly prodigious musical skills and a truly twisted sense of humour. A winner of the Canadian Country Music Association's Guitarist of the Year so many times they "retired" him (seriously!), he has contrtibuted to records and concerts by a galaxy of stars. You might recognize George Fox, Shania Twain, Lisa Brokop, Michelle Wright, Tommy Hunter, The Dixie Chicks, Quartette, Cindy Church, Murray McLauchlan, Bob Snider, Gordon Lightfoot, Jane Siberry, James Keelaghan... well, Wendell's played with them all. But it's when he gets out on his own that the laughs threaten to drown out the cheers. With CDs like "The S**T hits the fans" and "Happy songs sell records, sad songs sell beer" and songs like "Rocks and Trees", "The Barnyard Two-step" and "Great Big Johnson", you get the idea.

An evening with Wendell and Katherine will leave you inspired by the music and exhausted from the laughter.
