Korri Spruyt

Korri Spruyt (b. 1997/1998) is a Canadian musician. She performed extensively as part of the Spruyt Sisters, a duo with her sister Anika Spruyt.

Korri was born in Sylvan Lake, Alberta, where she lived with her family until they moved to Okotoks, to be close to Calgary, where they could better access a professional music studio.

Korri and her older sister Anika would often play publicly together at various venues in Alberta. Typically, Anika play violin, while Korri would play bass, piano, or another instrument.

Several videos of Korri playing appeared in 2016 on YouTube and Facebook. Korri and Anika recorded themselves playing O Come, O Come Emanuel and Red Prairie Dawn. Korri performed St Anne’s Reel on keyboard with Anika on violin in addition to JJ Guy and Gordon Stobbe accompanying. Korri wrote October Reel, which she performed with Anika at the Kenosee Lake Kitchen Party.

Korri went to Boston to study at the Berklee College of Music in 2017. She obtained a bachelor’s degree in songwriting with a minor in American Roots Music in 2021.

Korri played bass in Waypoint, a four person band in the Boston area. The band also included Aaron Wolff on Whistle, Korey Brodsky on Guitar, and Corban Welter on Mandolin. Videos produced of the four include performances of Halloween Rehearsal by Russ Barenberg, Flying Machine by Havins and Welter, and Another Kind of Blues by Welter.
