Music

Press


Folk, Bluegrass and Country purists may have trouble reconciling this album – it doesn’t fit squarely into any particular musical niche – but the average listener should enjoy it if they give it a chance. As a debut album, it certainly serves to show The Wynnes are a musical force to be reckoned with. You can find their music here: http://thewynnes.ca

Have a listen if you would like to get back to your musical roots. Or just check them out if your roots need a little colouring. Either way, you may discover The Wynnes have a win on their hands.
