Free-wheeling blend of influences from Celtic and bluegrass, to Mexican son jarocho, brass bands, and Canadian roots.

This Canadian folk rock band has been travelling the world for two decades, filling theatres, and lighting up concert and dance halls with their free-wheeling blend of influences from Celtic and bluegrass, to Mexican son jarocho, brass bands, and Canadian roots.

They’ve been called everything from Cajun slamgrass to worldbeat, they’ve received a Juno award (Canadian Grammy), plus two Juno nominations and released nine albums.

“A place where Irish, Mexican and Roots music collide.” The Seattle Weekly

The band will be supported by two-time Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee, Sarah Jane Scouten songwriter, scholar of roots music history, and travelling musician. With flavours of Lucinda Williams, Nanci Griffiths, Old Crow Medicine Show and a wealth of old-time and bluegrass music.

“A mix of Eagles laced alt-country, Tower of Power horns and gospel choirs, reminiscent of early Elton John and Van Morrison.”
