Transforming tradition with vigour, curiosity, humour and spark, this trio from Prince Edward Island wielding bodhrán, acoustic guitar and violin plays seamless, polished, barrel-drum-tight, rhythmically innovative and wildly entertaining music. Singing both French and English, they were awarded “World Music Recording of the Year” (2015) by East Coast Music Association, been nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards, and received “Root-Traditional Album of the Year” (2012) from Music PEI. Their new album “Auprès du Poêle” (2016) weave old-school Acadian roots (France-Canadian) with Breton, Irish and Scottish tune, filled with wicked grooves and cunning quirks, featuring both traditional and original songs.
This will be the trio’s first tour in Australia, performing at Blue Mountains Music Festival, The National Folk Festival, Yackandandah Folk Festival and a series of special concerts across TAS, VIC, and NSW.
