Description

Joy Kills Sorrow 

Born of the illustrious Boston, Mass., folk and singer-songwriter scene, Joy Kills Sorrow is a musical collective of five classical and jazz-trained artists together to make stringband music. Though the quintet can usually be seen toting around bluegrass instruments, calling them a bluegrass band would be ridiculous. Their music is driven by a fierce poeticism, influenced by everything from chamber music to pop, indie rock, and yes – even bluegrass. Yet, if you listen closely, the band’s sound doesn’t flatly situate with any of those individual styles.

Fish & Bird 

Fish & Bird’s latest album, Every Whisper is a Shout Across the Void, marks a major step forward for the young band. The project began in Victoria, BC in 2006 as an acoustic duo, comprised of Taylor Ashton (banjo, guitar, vocals) and Adam Iredale-Gray (fiddle).
