Album Notes
Armed with a love of jigs, reels and ballads honoured in Newfoundland and an energy found more often in 3 piece punk rock bands than 5 piece folk acts, their accordions, fiddle and talent have shaken national festivals including Winnipeg, Mariposa, and Vancouver.

Barely into their twenties, they've intuitively become the keepers of the songs we love and have sought out tunes that may have otherwise been lost to the culture forever. A new breed of folk musician with a wide sense of the world and a firm belief that Newfoundlanders can hold their own with the best players the world has to offer.

If there’s a trad record fierce enough to make a splash this year and send waves up the island’s shores, over the Strait and, who knows, even clear across the pond – this is probably it. – The Telegram

The production is crisp and lush, but never overdone and thankfully stripped of any tacky studio trickery and affectations, leaving just the raw textures of the instruments and the expert hands guiding them. – The Scope

Some of it might be from your grandfather’s record collection, but it sounds as contemporary and relevant as any other roots musicians making a raucous at all hours to a sweaty, sold-out crowd at the Ship in downtown St. John’s. – The Independent
