Thank you for bein’ a friend (Sask Arts Board)

Good morning, buds!

We would just like to take a minute to extend a huge thank you to the Saskatchewan Arts Board for granting us funding for our Eastern Canadian Tour with Megan Nash. Their help allowed six people from the prairies to cram into a van and drive thousands of kilometres and play our music for a new audience. We are so fortunate to have organizations like the Sask Arts Board that maintain such amazing support for Saskatchewan artists. Financial support lets us get where we need to go much faster, whether that is writing and arranging new music, or literally putting gas in the tank to get us to a new city. For that we thank the Sask Arts Board greatly.

We’ve already started work on some brand new music with Megan as well as new Bears tunes, including preparations for our upcoming full-length record. 2017 is going to be a big one. Come spend it with us, will ya?

Thank you again to the Saskatchewan Arts Board, and to all of you for bein’ a friend. Happy weekend!


Bears + Nash

Say no to Gainerfest!


We did it! We found Megan’s triangle and Christmas is saved in the communities of Mortlach, Palmer, and Moose Jaw.
Thank you so much to all who came to the Bears–Nash Holiday Bash! What an unbelievably special way to end off 2016. Thank you to the Artful Dodger for hosting us, and thank you to Jon Neher, Stacy Tinant, Nick Faye, and Megan Nash for being such talented and amazing friends. And if you’ve come to a show, bought a CD, or supported our band in any way this past year then we owe you a very sincere thank you as well. We’ll see you in 2017!

Bonus points if it actually lights up.

“Digital Knitting” by Kelsey Chabot

I got this sweater in Indiana for $16. Not bad.

​We’re home!

Thank you to everyone who came to a show, bought a CD, or sent us words of encouragement while on the road! And thank you to all our amazing hosts for opening up their homes to us. All of your support is greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much to our wonderful artists and photographers Kelsey Chabot, Alix Gowan, and Raquel Vigueras for making sure we always look good. Thank you to Orion Paradis and David J Taylor for their work on the new single “Wait.” Please go check it out! We’d also like to thank Band on a Couch for shooting some videos with us. Stay tuned for those!

What an incredible distance to travel with our new musical partner and friend Megan Nash. She’s so supportive of our music, and we’re really fortunate to perform her music alongside her. We’ve got more things coming in the new year with Megan as well as more new Bears stuff!
