When Joel Plaskett joined Thrush Hermit on stage in December 1999, he had no idea what the next century would hold. All Plaskett knew was that night would be the last for the band he formed as a teenager. Without a backup plan, Plaskett, the son of musician Bill Plaskett, had a decision to make: move on to the next chapter or keep on rocking.
Now, more than 20 years later, Plaskett is a JUNO Award-winning musician at the helm of the Joel Plaskett Emergency whose unique sound inspired the next generation of Canadian singer-songwriters. Plaskett brings his inspiring story and iconic folk-rock tunes to Salmon Arm’s Song Sparrow Hall on Sept. 11, 2022.
