ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Rob & Halladay Quist
Rob & Halladay Quist are a father/daughter musical duo from Montana.

They both grew up on ranches, and Rob would take Halladay and her brother on wagon train cattle drives in the summer as chldren throughout the Bob Marshall Wilderness, where there would always be music around the campfire at night. Halladay,lead vocals, bass, banjo and guitar, has recently released an EP titled In the Sun, while Rob, lead vocals, banjo and guitar, is lead singer and songwriter of such seminal groups as Mission Mountain Wood Band, The Montana Band, and Rob Quist & Great Northern. Rob has released several CDs; appeared on national TV numerous times; toured extensively to Japan, Europe and the US; is a published poet; and was recently inducted into the University of Montana School of Fine Arts Hall of Honors, recognizing him as "one of it's greats". With stellar lead vocals, and close harmonies, they bring the easy camaraderie of well seasoned road warriors to the stage.
