The McDades

WINNER of the 2007 Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of The Year - Group.

WINNER of the 2006 Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best World Group & Best Instrumental Group.

WINNER of the 2007 Independent Music Award for Best World Album (traditional).

Nominated for two 2007 WCMAs, Outstanding Roots Recording, Duo/ Group & Best Album Design.

"At the heart of the group are siblings Shannon, Solon & Jeremiah who grew up playing Canadian folk music alongside their parents and among artists from around the world, a unique upbringing that led to a love and respect for all music. Their groundbreaking compositions and innovative arrangements are characterized by stunning virtuosity and a near-telepathic interaction on stage. Shannon’s lyrical fiddle, Jeremiah’s searing winds and Solon’s smooth bass create the rich foundation for this adventurous band.

"The siblings are joined by Simon Marion a multi-faceted guitarist whose influences range from Madonna to jazz, and François Taillefer, a magnetic hand-drumming nomad who has traveled the world studying ethnic rhythms on percussion. The musical diversity of this tight five-piece celebrates the very idea of what it means to be a Canadian musician." - CBC Radio 3
