"the fine American singer Caroline Herring, the discovery of the evening," Robin Denselow, The Guardian

The Cast - Leonard Podolak's various projects put him the centre of traditional Canadian music. As the founder and leader of The Duhks, he has taken their unique blend of traditionally influenced music to the finest festivals and stages all over the world. He's one of the most adventurous Appalachian style clawhammer banjo players in the world, and his knowledge and love of traditional music from the world over brings a unique set of musical skills to the project.

"Yet deep into the early hours, the group's two main mischief makers, Podolak and Cutting, are still swapping tunes, jokes and video clips before deciding to make a pancake mix for breakfast." Robin Denselow, The Guardian
