Fearless front-woman Derina Harvey leads this Alberta-based five-piece Celtic-rock act, who offer an authentic east-coast experience with a fresh take on traditional tunes as well as their own original jigs and reels. Their rocky, rhythmic undertow is layered with guitars, fiddle, and topped by Derina’s powerful voice. These transplanted east-coasters have earned a reputation with their high-energy live show, leaving many an audience out-of-breath and hollering from their seats!
2016 has seen the group gain further success and industry recognition by adding an album to their discography, and continuing to deliver engaging live performances. The band has been steadily building a following by playing live (over 150 shows in the last three years). Though based in Alberta, the band continues to add to their tour schedule to include all of Western Canada and was recently selected to participate in showcases in Saskatchewan (OSAC Showcase 2016) and Manitoba (Manitoba Arts Network Showcase 2016). The band has even toured in Newfoundland each summer for the last three years, where they have been featured at George Street Festival (St. John's, NL) opening for the Newfoundland act Shanneyganock. In 2015, they shared the stage with other east-coast favourites including Jimmy Rankin, The Irish Descendants, Pogey, and even some rock acts such as The Trews, Kim Mitchell, and Trooper. The band has two full length recordings to their credit. Their self-titled debut album (2013) has garnered radio airplay across Canada, and their second album Rove and Go (2016) has become even more widespread, being added at over 30 stations across Canada and tracking at #65 on CKUA's top-played albums for 2016. The band was also nominated for an Edmonton Music Award in 2016 in the “Artist to Watch” category.
