The Vaudevillian took to the stage with Brendan J. Stephens setting himself up suitably on a stack of upside-down buckets (likely brought with him from busking at the art crawl) and Willow Walker set up to his left. Also joining them was a bassist playing upright. Brendan and Willow look pretty incredible and unusual, like they have been plucked out of a different era and brought to us a century later. And they live the part too wherever they go, I saw them at the Hamilton Music Awards, dressed in the same style as they accepted their award for Folk/Traditional recording of the year.
If you're looking to catch them live and you’re nearby, it isn't very difficult. They seem to be everywhere in the Hamilton and Toronto area lately. Check them out at:
