The BBC, the CBC, NPR, Penguin Eggs, Mojo – just a short list of the media to have sung the praise of this folk duo. After appearing in Showcase in 2006, they signed to the iconic True North Records for 2009’s No Fool For Trying, which also earned them a Canadian Folk Music Award and JUNO nod. They have heaps of ECMA nominations and are the only Canadians to win the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Their latest, 2011’s The Good In Goodbye, led to sold-out dates across the country with some high-profile peers, plus several successful treks throughout Europe and the U.S.
