"The Oldest Child put on a first rate show at our St. Paddy's Day event and kept the audience entertained and wanting more. With a mix of Irish themed covers, appropriate for the day and some originals, all with the unique sound of The Oldest Child I can't wait to see him again and hope he's available for our next event."

Bio: Since 2009 this symbolic story through music has been known as The Oldest Child. Evolving in the talent rich Peterborough and the Kawarthas, solo musician and self-proclaimed lumberjack, Lee Appleby, writes and composes all original guitar based folk music. The music is sourced from everyday life, inexpiable phenomenon, constant self discovery and of all things; emotion. Appleby's emotionally driven songwriting; with its deep acoustic melodies and lyrics, tell a story about growth, failure, turmoil, persistence, success and the forest; to which he calls his home.
