The Duhks Bio
GRAMMY nominated and JUNO award winning roots fusion supergroup, The Duhks, are returning to Rhythm & Roots for a very special performance with their original award winning lineup. One of the most musically adventurous bands to come from the roots scene in the past decade, The Duhks have long been at the forefront of the neo-folk movement and have won admirers as diverse as David Crosby, Dolly Parton and Doc Watson. It’s been said that seeing the Duhks live is nothing short of a spiritual experience — their ability to synthesize Old time, French Canadian and Celtic music, and punch it up with shades of pop, blues, soul, and driving Afro Cuban rhythms creates an experience that leaves crowds in an uproar. Since forming in Winnipeg in 2001 they have produced four critically-acclaimed albums, won numerous awards, and been lauded by critics from the New York Times, Boston Globe, NPR, and more. For this a few select festivals this year, including Rhythm & Roots, The Duhks will feature their original members: Jessee Havey on vocals, Leondard Podolak on banjo, Tania Elizabeth on fiddle and harmony vocals, and Jordan McConnell on guitar with rotating percussionists. Scott Senior will also be available on percussion for select dates.
