The Once: Newfoundland Folk Band

I just discovered this band on CBC Live. Here’s a link to the performance I listened to.

I liked them so much I bought their album on iTunes. If you like Gillian Welch, you will probably like this band.

No, I don’t know them. No, I am not a corporate shill. Not right now anyways.

Anybody else a fan?

Here’s a promotional quote (oversells them a little), but it is intriguing:

Bonus youtube links (quality leaves something to be desired, but good samples):

Very nice. I wonder if they will tour in the US? I see they covered Tom Waites who is wonderful!
