Horizon Ridge are a group of fine multi-instrumentalists and seasoned singers known for their intuitive and tight harmonies. Helen Goodchild, Steve Goodchild, Peter May and Dianne Quinton take their inspiration for music from their roots and subsequent journeys near and far.
Whether they're playing intimate settings like a cafe or house concert, iconic stages like the Ironwood, or at larger venues like The Calgary Stampede and the Armstrong IPE, Horizon Ridge bring an engaging stage presence to their performances. Audiences love to hear them sing a cappella! People watch the band closely, as you never know who'll play what instrument on the next song. Except the fiddle. Given we love our ears, and yours, only Helen gets to cradle it :-)
Horizon Ridge released their first CD, Enough is all you need, in summer 2016 to audiences in Newfoundland, Alberta and British Columbia. A mix of original and cover songs, it showcases the band's ability to move effortlessly between different musical styles and genres. Many thanks to CKUA for bringing us to the airwaves!
