The Evans Family

Nomad Jones

We are very excited to have The Evans Family as our host band for this year’s Big Top Square Dance on Saturday night. Max Evans is an accomplished fiddler who has been playing old-time and bluegrass with his brother Frank Evans since they were young.  Frank went on to play with his Juno-nominated band The Slocan Ramblers, while Max went on to form The All Day Breakfast Stringband, an award-winning band two years running at the Appalachian Stringband Festival in Clifftop, West Virginia.  Sarra Evans first met Max through the old time scene in Vancouver and the two have been playing together since, collaborating with Frank whenever possible. Most recently the three Evans’ performed at the 2019 East Van Old Time Social. Max and Sarra live with their two dogs in Port Alberni, while Frank resides in Toronto. Rounding out the band on bass is Max & Franks dad, Neal Evans.
