Ten Strings and a Goat Skin
Transforming tradition with vigor, curiosity, and sparks of goofy humour, Jesse Périard and brothers Rowen and Caleb Gallant of Prince Edward Island band Ten Strings And A Goat Skin, expand on the Scottish, Irish and Acadian roots of PEI’s traditional music. They flirt with indie’s best moments while weaving old-school Franco-Canadian, Breton, Irish, and Scottish tunes with wickedly current grooves and clever quirks. In 2016, the group was nominated for Juno, Canadian Folk Music, and East Coast Music Association awards and had their music presented on CBC and Radio Canada, CBS and PBS in the USA, TV 5 in France, and the BBC in the UK, to universal acclaim. Hailed on two continents as “infectious” and “the best in contemporary/traditional Celtic music”, they infuse their original creations with modern and world rhythms and a fiery, contagious and unique sound which leaves audiences wanting more.
