Bill & Joel Plasket

Hear All Year! We've got Bill & Joel Plaskett at the West End Cultural Centre Wednesday, March 22, co-presented by the WECC.

2017 sees Joel Plaskett hitting the road with one of his biggest musical influences, his father, Bill Plaskett. Joined by special guests, Peterborough's Mayhemingways, the father & son duo will perform songs from their new record, Solidarity, and as well as favourites from Joel's vast catalogue of music.

While Joel Plaskett has made a name for himself as one of Canada’s great songwriters, his dad Bill is an accomplished musician in his own right.


Growing up, Joel heard his dad playing tunes at home, took that inspiration and ran with it. “In a child’s desire for attention from his father, he’d come up and put his hands on my strings,” Bill recalls, of Joel’s interest in his guitar playing. “So I made him a cutout guitar with a string that went around his neck so while I played, he could play too."
