    How do you describe Murder Murder?
    Well, they describe themselves as a Bloodgrass band… that’s Bluegrass + Outlaw Country + Exclusively Murder Ballads. As devoted fans of bluegrass, traditional music, and folk music, they were drawn to the murky ethical themes of the murder ballad and its enduring nature.

    Murder ballads have often captured the essence and atmosphere of a dark, lawless and violent frontier. Northern Ontario, although never romanticized in the way that the Wild West or Canada’s far north were during the gold rush era, was once such a place – with a wealth of stories and characters.

    Come and join Murder Murder as they bring their tales of death back to life with a kick of the suitcase, saw of the fiddle, and roll of the banjo.

    Murder Murder are:
    Jon Danyliw – Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin
    Sam Cassio – Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin
    Geoff McCausland – Fiddle
    Barry Miles – Vocals, Banjo, Dobro
    Kris Dickson – Upright Bass
    Steph Duchesne – Percussion

    “The heaviest bluegrass band on Earth” – Marcus Fougere (Eastcoast Love Story)

    The Ever-Lovin’ Jug Band
    Minnie Heart on vocals, banjolin, fiddle and foot bass, and Bill Howard on vocals, guitar and harmonica.
