This week, we have music by The Duhks. Popular Canadian alt-folk, folk-rock, world-Celtic, acoustic-electric band, The Duhks pretty much define the word eclectic. Since 2002, the group has seen rotating personnel but two founding members remain; Leonard Podolak (banjo and vocals, far left) and Jessee Havey (lead vocals, wearing the red boots). Former members include fiddle virtuoso Tania Elizabeth, a two-time guest on Acoustic Interlude. Throughout the various incarnations, the Duhks have remained loyal to the core mission of delivering a contemporary up-tempo version of music steeped in the folk traditions of North America and Northern Europe.

We'll sample music from all of their albums: Your Daughters & Your Sons (2003); The Duhks (2005); Migrations (2006); Fast Paced World (2008); and Beyond the Blue (2014).

Hosted by John Macdonell, Acoustic Interlude is a program of progressive folk and acoustic music. Genres may include Americana, bluegrass and traditional but the emphasis is on contemporary artists from a wide variety of musical backgrounds.

Each week the best new releases are featured along with interview and performance sessions from our Studio-A. Past sessions have included Rodney Crowell, Amy Ray, Peter Mulvey, Sam Bush, Jeff Black, Mary Gauthier, and many others.
