Are the songs influenced by Mayne Island and its topography?
Definitely. The whole area is a rainforest, Best medium length haircuts for round faces and on Mayne you are surrounded by trees and the ocean. It’s certainly very inspiring to be around so much life. Those nature references are just as likely to come from our travels, however; Cold Salty refers to the South Shore of Nova Scotia, and The Lake is Falcon Lake, Manitoba. So there are references from all across Canada.
Are you familiar with UK folk bands such as Fairport Convention or Pentangle who were mixing folk with jazz and rock back in the 60s?
There is definitely a strong musical lineage in what we do that extends back to that. Best medium length haircuts for round faces Some people have used the term prog-folkto refer to some of our twistier songs, but in the case with us and I think probably with a lot of other bands who have fused folk with jazz and rock, Best medium length haircuts for round faces the more adventurous stuff actually is more inspired by crooked old traditional music than anything else. A lot of traditional fiddle tunes and dance pieces from all over the world are in so-called oddtime signatures, and make adventurous melodic choices. Folk is more closely related to jazz and rock than some people seem to think. Bands like Fairport and Pentangle explore that relationship, as do John Martyn, Andy Irvine, Martin Carthy, and loads of others. That open-mindedness about folk seems to come really naturally in the British Isles so we re hopeful that British audiences are going to dig what we do!
You’re coming to the UK for the first time in January. Any thoughts on that?
