Blue Canvas Orchestra
Tin Can Gin
Tonight’s show begins with the familiar sounds of Big Top Chautauqua’s very own Blue Canvas Orchestra along with special musical guests Corey Carlson, Danielle Diamond, Randy Savage and Randy Sabien!
Closing out the show in tonight’s second half are local favorites Tin Can Gin! Born and brewed upon the shores of Lake Superior near Duluth by childhood pals Harrison Olk and Trevor Marrin. Along with mandolinist Bryan Nelson, the trio created the trademark TCG tunes that are fan favorites to this very day. In the autumn of 2011 the group was summoned to the stage at their first gig as “Tin Can Gin”. As time passed the band added fiddle virtuoso Nori Perrine and Neil Krause on stand-up bass to round out the sound! Tonight we welcome them back!
