After years of dedication and playing, Jan Purcell and Pine Road have developed into the very best bluegrass/roots music outfit in the Gatineau Hills. They are a shining example of our regional music scene and would truly do us proud wherever they travel. Success is indeed finding them, for good reason: they are fine people playing fine music; it is as simple as that.

Wayne, Jan and I had a truly wonderful time on Friday night when Jan Purcell and Pine Road welcomed us into their pickin’ session. Jan is a real trouper who does an excellent Canadian version of Rhonda Vincent’s “Bluegrass Girl”. She punches it out with all the fire of the original and she’s heck of a fiddler too. I caught their on stage act on Saturday and was thoroughly impressed. They are a class act and don’t need to take a back seat to anybody.
