Having honed their skills during seven years as house band at legendary Toronto venue the Dakota Tavern, Canadian trio The Lonesome Ace Stringband bring uncanny ensemble synergy to their distinctive bluegrass/old-time blend. Their line-up of fiddle, banjo, bass and three lead vocals balances multi-layered richness with ample creative space, in a repertoire that takes in vintage Appalachian, honky-tonk and jug-band fare together with contemporary covers and original material. Their latest album, the aptly though wryly named Modern Old-Time Sounds for the Bluegrass and Folksong Jamboree, was released in 2019. 

“So much verve it will make your head and heart spin” (Bluegrass Unlimited)

Combining proud Yorkshire roots with vibrant transatlantic affinities – plus a fondness for musical sparkle as keen as their namesakes’ – English trio The Magpies’ powerful singing, in both traditional and self-penned material, is matched by outstanding instrumental work on mandolin, guitar, fiddle, cello, bouzouki and banjo. 

“Literate storytellers with a knack for high drama and engaging hoedowns” (Uncut)
