The Duhks - Free Outdoor Concert - Part of Chirp Series

This a Free Outdoor Event as part of the Chirp Concert series.

The Duhks is a Canadian folk music group formed in 2002 in Winnipeg.


The members play a blend of Canadian soul, gospel, North American folk, Brazilian samba, old time country string band, zydeco, and Irish dance music. Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, 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. Their 4th album Fast Paced World (featuring Sarah Dugas as vocalist and Christian Dugas on drums) was released in 2008.

It also received a JUNO nomination for Best Roots & Traditional Album. The video for the titled single "Fast Past World" features Lucent Dossier Experience and was directed by Dream Rockwell

    Excited about tonight's show! ...although I will be a little late, since my class at West Conn doesn't end until 7:00pm. Mary has a good plan, but if you want to find me, as soon as I arrive I will head to the very very front, as close to the stage as I possibly can. I like to be able to see the instruments while they play and of course I love to take pictures! See you!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
