"Canada's premier neo-tradsters romp from world-beat to blues, urban-pop to old-timey, with wild-eyed invention, haunting traditionalism, and spine-rattling groove." (Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe)

Seeing GRAMMY nominees and JUNO award winners The Duhks live is nothing short of a spiritual experience. A syncopated bluesy banjo number seamlessly follows a Brazilian samba; an old-time jaunt nestles comfortably next to a gospel performance. One of the most musically adventurous bands to come from the roots scene in the past decade, The Duhks' return to the stage is definitely a cause for celebration.

Twin Cities poet and singer/songwriter Brian Laidlaw opens, showcasing songs from his recent EP Echolalia.
