As Folk on the Rocks 2013 quickly approaches we here at YkOnline.ca are going to spotlight the talent that will be making up this years musical line-up. As we crawl the Internets, we will provide you with a brief description – that we find on Wikipedia – of who they are and one of their music videos – that we find on YouTube. Here is what we learned about The Crooked Brothers:
Who says you can’t choose your family? The Crooked Brothers are kindred, no question.
Their blend of timeless country classic sounds, back porch blues and stomping scrap yard funk has gained the attention of many folk festival and roots music fans both live and on their carefully crafted albums. As with Deathbed Pillowtalk (2009), their sophomore release Lawrence, Where’s Your Knife? (2011) was self-produced and recorded in a small cabin over a cold Manitoban winter. From the very first track on Lawrence, the Brothers are quick to let us know this is not going to be just another folk album.
