About Probable Cause

The Greg Denton Probable Cause Acoustic Trio is an improbable assortment of genre bouncing musicians homesteading in Guelph, Ontario.

Though the instrumentation is vaguely “traditional stringband” (centred around banjo, guitar, upright bass, no drums – with piano and electric guitar), the repertoire roams from folk, bluegrass, and classic country to r’n’b, punk rock, soul, hokum jazz, and back again. There’s even a smidgen of hand-wrought Greg Denton confabulations lurking in a typical set-list. We call it “Plunk Rock”.

Current members include Greg Denton (vocals, guitar); Claire Taylor (vocals, kazoo); Ben Alles (banjo, hollers); Jamey Rosen (piano); Harri Palm (electric guitar); Cam Werner (upright bass).

A further coterie of musicians have either been members in the past, or are known to sub in here and there for a gig or two. These include Jen Rafter, Jesse Turton; Scott Fitzpatrick; Minnie Heart (Ever-Lovin’ Jug Band); Jeff Bird (Cowboy Junkies); Steve Vickery; Vanessa Tignanelli among others.
