Jeff Carl - lead vocalist, songwriter, acoustic guitar and fiddle

JEFF CARL was born in a small rural village outside of Welland, Ontario. Moved to New Liskeard in 1972. Although I like all music my roots have been in country. I started playing fiddle at 8 years old, drums in my Dad's band at 16 and acoustic guitar at age 23. I have played in several bands in the area and beyond throughout the years. I have been a self employed logger for over 30 years but music has always been a pastime. Now my passion is in writing and performing my own songs. The Hygraders really bring it all together for me.

Rob Young - lead guitar, multi-instrumentalist and back-up vocals

ROB YOUNG hails from the New Liskeard area. Over the past 35 years he has played with many bands, playing folk, classical, blues, rock and now country. Coming from a musical family has had a strong influence on my ability to be a multi-instrumentalist but my main instrument being lead guitar. The band is a great venue to stay focused, enthusiastic, energetic and connected in a busy world. It brings a surge of northern pride to me when composing and performing live.
