The Duhks with Brian Laidlaw – at The Cedar
Thursday, January 23, 2014 - 7:30pm
KFAI proudly sponsors The Duhks at the Cedar Cultural Center on Thursday, January 23, at 7:30 pm.
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.
This Canadian acoustic roots band boasts a diverse collection of musical influences, including old-time, jazz, Celtic folk, and even punk. They blend these disparate genres into an irresistible sound that simultaneously feels both traditional and modern.
That sound – found on four stunning studio albums – captured the hearts of numerous fans and has received extensive critical acclaim: The Duhks’ 2005 self-titled record won the Best Roots & Traditional Album JUNO Award, and, in 2007, they were nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Country Performance category.
Twin Cities poet and singer/songwriter Brian Laidlaw opens, showcasing songs from his recent EP, Echolalia.
More information is available at The Cedar Cultural Center.
