Never heard of The Duhks? Listen up!
I'm a long way from Canada, but of course there are Canadian connections.
While on an Art Deco walking tour of Florida's Miami Beach, I met a couple who had escaped the cold and snow of Toronto.
They were very happy in the 80 degree Fahrenheit weather.
Yesterday my husband and I, along with four friends, set sail on a Caribbean cruise.
Cayamo : Journey Through Song is just that. All about music.
The headliners who are on board all week include Lyle Lovett, EmmyLou Harris, John Hiatt, Shawn Colvin, Brandi Carlisle and Patty Griffin.
And last night we were treated to the wonderful sound of The Duhks. The award-winning band from Winnipeg, Manitoba wrangled in a lot of new fans, including me.
In December 2007, they were awarded a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Album-Contemporary.
I'm definitely adding them to my CD collection and plan to hear more of them in the coming week.
On to Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Ocho Rios, Jamaica!
