Age-old entertainments—sitting around the fire, telling tales—can take on ever-new faces. Young acoustic power trio Ten Strings and a Goat Skin know this, transforming tradition with vigor, curiosity, and sparks of goofy humor.

This bilingual folk/fusion group from Prince Edward Island plays traditional and original music inspired by their Atlantic Canadian roots, infusing Irish, Acadian, French, and original creations with contagious pop and world rhythms.

Described by The Guardian as "a seamless, polished, barrel-drum-tight, rhythmically innovative, and wildly entertaining traditional music powerhouse," the band creates a unique and fiery sound that leaves audiences wanting more.

Last year, the group won the East Coast Music Award for Roots/Traditional Recording of the Year for their album Auprès du Poêle (Around the Wood Stove), produced by Leonard Podolak of The Duhks. Their first studio album, Corbeau, won the ECMA World Recording of the Year in 2015.
