It’s a combination of bluegrass, country and folk-rock that’s had the Canadian festival circuit up in arms over their potential, and the rest are sure to catch on. The past couple years have seen the much-loved Canadian trio rising through the ranks. In 2009 the band released Blue On Brown, an album of songs by Arlo Guthrie and Bob Dylan. The record was the boys’ tribute to songwriters they had always admired, and even Arlo Guthrie, the legend himself, chimed in saying they were “way too young to be playing that good.” When the video for the band’s next single, a cover of Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” made a splash on CMT in both the U.S. and Canada, the band reached a larger audience yet. And in late 2010 The Abrams Brothers released a new video for the single “Mermaid Town” that went straight into medium rotation on CMT. The Abrams Brothers are fourth-generation musicians with musical roots reaching back to their great-grandparents. And despite their age, veteran is certainly not a word out of reach given their credits. They’ve been touring together for almost a decade – and in the past few years, have become Canadian festival favorites. In 2005, the Ontario-based group became the youngest Canadians to appear on Nashville’s iconic Grand Ole Opry. They’ve toured Europe, and several times have performed for the Jacob’s Ladder Folk Festival in Israel. In 2006, the band received the Daniel Pearl Memorial violin, given to especially gifted young musicians. In 2005, they were named Emerging Artist of the Year at the Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards. Over the past few years, The Abrams Brothers have been a constant on the Canadian festival circuit and have shared the same stage with Feist, John Hammond and Dean Brody.
