An acoustic trio from Newfoundland in Canada, The Once have been on the go since 2009, furthering Newfoundland’s proud songwriting, musical and poetic traditions. The trio have built their reputation on their fine interpretations, and are noted for their talented vocal harmonies.
Their latest album Time Enough, which came out in 2018, has the trio driving their sound with their trademark harmonies, and widening their musical boundaries. The Once have been nominated for the Canadian East Coast Music Awards as well as JUNO Awards. In 2010, they won two prizes at the Canadian Folk Music Awards. The Once supported British band Passenger on tours of USA, Canada, Europe and Australia in 2014.
One reviewer described The Once as follows: “Perfect vocal harmonies. Think of an ideal mix of Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch with The Chieftains backing, and Daniel Lanois stirring the music.” Their only Danish festival concert in 2022.
