Folk Road Show Pre-Show Chats

It's been a summer full of shows & road for the Folk Road Show. This international quartet made up of Dominique Fricot (Canada), Benjamin James Caldwell (New Zealand/Australia), Pieter Van Vliet (the Netherlands) and Olaf Caarls (the Netherlands). For their second Canadian tour (and fourth overall) they've been promoting their piping hot new release, their debut self-titled album which came out on Tuesday. The album has a patchwork quilt quality: it's made up of blocks of different colours and personalities, sewn together by a common thread that is the common experiences of these four men on the road together. It's a playful intermingle of lots of stringed & strummed instruments, some horns, and a variety of voices. It's an ideal soundtrack to that great Canadian roadtrip you've been meaning to take, or enjoying with some friends on a late summer evening. If you can't make it out tonight, try to catch some of their upcoming house shows, I hear that's where magic happens...
