Fearless front-woman Derina Harvey leads this Alberta-based Celtic-rock act, who offer an authentic east-coast experience with a fresh take on traditional tunes as well as their own original jigs and reels. Their rocky, rhythmic undertow is layered with guitars, fiddle, and topped by Derina’s powerful voice. These transplanted east-coastershave earned a reputation with their high-energy live show, leaving many an audience out-of-breath and hollering from their seats!  

The group has recently expanded their touring footprint across Western Canada on the performing arts circuit (including 19 concerts in Saskatchewan). The group's first performance in the United States was in October, 2017, at the Arts Northwest Booking Conference in Tacoma, WA, where they received the award for Best Showcase.

The group has logged over 120 performances in the last two years, with many of these on the performing arts and festival circuits, including tour dates in Western Canada, Newfoundland, and even the Northwest Territories. The band has been featured at George Street Festival (St. John's, NL) three times, opening for the Newfoundland act Shanneyganock. They have shared the stage with other east-coast favourites including Ron HynesJimmy Rankin, The Irish Descendants, Pogey, and even some rock acts such as The Trews, Kim Mitchell, and Trooper.

The band has two full length recordings to their credit. Their self-titled debut album (2013) has garnered radio airplay across Canada, and their second album Rove and Go (2016) has become even more widespread, being added at over 30 stations across Canada and tracking at #65 on CKUA's top-played albums for 2016. The band was also nominated for an Edmonton Music Award in 2016 in the “Artist to Watch” category. Currently, they're working on original material and new recordings, some of which will be released this year (2018).
