Biography

AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

They are a four-piece original country/bluegrass band from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The band was formed in 2001 by brothers Todd and Darrell Lesage, both seasoned musicians that had never played in the same band together although they both toured extensively throughout Canada and the U.S. for ten years each….hence the name AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. To date the band tours four to five times a year, mostly in Western Canada, but in 2007 they started touring down to the U.S. trying to break new ground in the U.S. country circuit.

A typical AATY setlist contains a selection of over 60 original songs as well as various cover songs of traditional country genre. By "traditional", we vary from Merle Haggard to Johnny Cash to Hank Williams.
