Seeing The Duhks (pronounced ducks) live is nothing short of a spiritual experience. A syncopated bluesy banjo number seamlessly follows a Brazilian samba; an old-time jaunt nestles comfortably next to a gospel performance. GRAMMY nominees and JUNO award winners, they are one the most musically adventurous bands to come from the roots scene in the past decade. The Duhks coming to the Opera House stage is definitely a cause for celebration as they perform a mix of contemporary, traditional, and original tunes with irresistible energy and musicianship. Think Carolina Chocolate Drops. Longtime Duhks fans will be pleased to know the band is bringing the original lineup—banjoist Leonard Podolak, fiddler Tania Elizabeth, guitarist Jordan McConnell, percussionist Scott Senior, and singer Jessee Havey. And, for those who like their roots music with a dose of social responsibility, the group is heavily involved in Green Duhks, an environmental mission to raise awareness about ways to live a more economically viable and ecologically sustainable lifestyle. "Canada's premier neo-tradsters romp from world-beat to blues, urban-pop to old-timey, with wild-eyed invention, haunting traditionalism, and spine-rattling groove." - Scott Alarik, The Boston Globe
