Union Duke - Set Me Off & Country Band Canadian

UNION DUKE (Toronto folk, bluegrass)

"Union Duke have created a sound that isn’t typically what you’d expect from a group of Ontario musicians, however, there exists a charm in what they are doing. The music comes off sounding free and easy, and thanks to their effortless tight-knit harmonies and the use of mostly acoustic instrumentation, they bridge the country-folk-bluegrass genres nicely."

- Marvin Matthews: National Music Centre

Kevin Schofield 'The Tennessee Cree'

You may have heard Schofield’s nearly flawless Johnny Cash impersonation while he’s busking around town. Schofield grew up in the Canadian arctic. His Cree background introduced him to country music, and by the age of ten he started performing on stages across Canada.
