Cape Breton is known at Tønder Festival for speedy fiddles and foot tapping. But here comes a Cape Breton band that looks south for their inspiration: to US folk and country. Brian Cathcart (vocal, guitar), Matt McNeil (guitar, mandolin), Colin Gillis (mouth organ, bass, vocal) and Redmond MacDougall (banjo, percussion, vocal) grew up together and have always played music when they met. In 2012 they formed a band called Pretty Archie, after a well-known busker in their home town on Cape Breton Island. On their debut album, Pretty Archie had help from Bob Doidge, who has worked with prominent names like Gordon Lightfoot and U2. The latest album is called Sing Along & Love Songs, and here the group continue to force the boundaries between folk, bluegrass, country and blues. We are pleased to announce new notes with a scent of salt water from Cape Breton.
