Dynamic Canadian group, The Duhks, perform at Thrasher
The Duhks (pronounced like "ducks") are a 5-member Canadian folk-rock-Celtic-old time-bluegrass group, four of whom hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba and the fifth from Victoria, British Columbia. They'll be migrating (yes...I just said that) to the historic Thrasher Opera House in Green Lake on Saturday, January 18 for a lively evening of music with, as fans attest, "...energy and dynamic presence that is undeniably captivating."
Their music draws heavily on all of the North American musical traditions, while successfully integrating Latin-music-influenced percussion. Their first album, Your Daughters & Your Sons was nominated for a Juno award, their eponymous second album won a Juno for Best Roots & Traditional Album by a Group, and "Heaven's My Home," from their third album, was nominated for the 2007 Grammy award for Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. The Duhks are touring in support of their latest album, "Fast Paced World," which is receiving rave reviews, and have been in the studio working on a soon-to-be-released album.
"The inventive Canadians in The Duhks are widely beloved for their smooth blend of traditional roots music, bluegrass and soul which they inject with well-placed Afro-Cuban and Celtic influences." - NPR” --
