Dust Poets
Dust PoetsThe Dust Poets are a five-piece acoustic folk-pop group with roots deep in the Canadian prairie. The band pokes affectionate fun at themselves and the world around them while spreading their own irreverent brand of small town angst. The Dust Poets have performed extensively across Canada and parts of the US, and are well known for their powerful stage presence, genre-bending original tunes,
and gorgeous harmony singing.

The Dust Poets perform the original music of veteran singer-songwriter Murray D. Evans, whose wry writer's eye explores themes of home-town losers, travel in foreign lands, and the absurdity of war. Ranging in tone from the darkly humourous to the achingly tender, Evans finds a fertile muse in the joys and disappointments of modern living.

The musically restless Dust Poets create arrangements that wander easily among different styles, including folk, bluegrass, swing, pop, and circus freak ragtime. The band's all-acoustic line-up features guitar, upright bass, accordion, mandolin, clarinet, and percussion, plus extraordinary four part vocal harmonies.

The Dust Poets continue to earn fans and attract international attention with great music, a great sense of humour, and great performances - every time they take the stage.
