The Listening Room was born in July of 2008 with the first Eric Taylor concert. If anyone had asked me then who else I would dream of coming, I would have said, "Steve Earle, Lyle Lovette, and The Duhks." It's a long story, but I met the father of Duhks singer, Jessee Havey in a deal gone bad when I sold him bumb acoustic pickup in the early 2000's. The first time I heard them live was at the Winnepeg Folk Music Festival. They were incredible, and I was in love.

In 2002, Leonard Podolak, an amazing clawhammer banjo player who was influenced by traditional music from Appalachia, founded the Duhks. What came to life was a Canadian/American eclectic folk band. Playing folk with traditional Canadian and American styles including soul, gospel, old-time, country string and zydeco, then some Irish, Latin influenced percussion, Celtic and Cajun the Duhks will amaze you.

Winning a Canadian Juno Award and nominated for a Grammy in the US, the Duhks have garnered a faithful following. They tour throughout the US and Canada and are festival favorites in both countries.

My son used to perform at the Fargo Street Fair with his yoyo routine. Several songs he used were by the Duhks. More than any other music, people would ask, "Who IS this band!?" When they play at the Winnepeg Folk Festival they need one of the largest day stages. And even then, if you don't arrive early, you'll have a hard time finding a decent place to sit.

When their manager contacted me to see if The Listening Room would host the Duhks I was thrilled to add them to our ever-growing list of some of the finest Americana bands and musicians playing in America.

Every now and then I will say, "This is a show you won't want to miss," but it has gotten to the point that the musicans who are choosing The Listening Room all fall into that category. But truely, This is a show you won't want to miss.
