Patchwork Yak is a Calgary-based roots band comprised of Murray Fitch (guitar, banjo, uke, harmonica), Suzi Martin (guitar, banjo, percussion) and Erik Smistad (bass, guitar). Expect music ranging from gentle and sweet to rowdy with a solid groove.
Suzi and Murray are both songwriters, having reached the finals of local songwriting contests on several occasions (and winning once).
The Yak’s sets consist of mostly original songs with a few choice covers. Expect variety, harmonies, sing-alongs, and songs to make you think, laugh or cry.
