Who says the Frozen North can't sizzle, eh?” said the Boston Globe. Band members are prolific: Sarah and Christian Dugas signed with Southern Ground (Zac Brown's Record label); banjoist Leonard Podolak has been invited into the Cecil Sharp Project based in the UK, as well as a new project he started with Canadian songwriters Dry Bones; and Jordan McConnel's guitar making business is taking off.
