The band’s unique sound – found on four stunning studio albums – has received extensive critical acclaim. The Duhks’ 2005 self-titled record won the Best Roots & Traditional Album Juno Award, and in 2007 they were nominated for a Grammy in the Best Country Performance category. One of the most musically adventurous bands to come from the roots scene in the past decade, The Duhks return to the stage after a three-year break is definitely a cause for celebration.
