Mariner's Curse

Mariner's Curse, formed from the bubbling cauldron of several previous bands, features Celtic and Canadiana music with tightly knit counterpoint and multi-part harmonies. Thierry Arsenault, on percussion, imparts a deep seated knowledge of time, meter and space with his precision drumming. Rocky Dalonzo, on guitar, has been a mainstay of the Montreal music scene for many years and his soaring tenor caps our vocal sound. Ron Jenkins, on keyboards, infuses the music with counter melodies and classical voicings and is the glue that fuses the band's sound. Alex Kehler, on fiddle and cittern is an eclectic musician, mastering a wide variety of musical disciplines for his own distinctive sound. Jonathan Moorman, on fiddle and guitar, powers his instruments with raw emotive energy, delivering an amazing connection to the music.

The Peelers

The Peelers were formed in a small farmhouse kitchen in Glengarry County in 1999. Born out of loose evening sessions over ice and rye, the band has evolved to become one of the most exciting and energetic live Celtic folk/punk acts in Canada.

The Peelers bend the rules of tradition, with their contemporary Irish/Gael blend drawing more from the insurgent nature of artists such as Shane MacGowan & The Pogues, The Mahones, The Waterboys, Black 47, and Tom Waits, while still maintaining a glint of the sound upon which they were weaned.
