DevilDuck Records presents our YOUNGBLOODS tour with Campbell Woods (Ontario, CAN), Ellen Froese (Sask, CAN) and Nicholas Faraone from Barbarisms (SWE). Our YOUNGBLOODS tour puts three terrific solo artists on the road together for a series of dates. It is a great way to discover new music and some very talented artists.
Soft songs about hard luck.
Nicholas Faraone (Barbarisms):
“Their cosmopolitan make-up and globetrotting tendencies bring something new to the world of twangy guitars and bar-room philosophising.” -Thomas Blake
Hailing from a dairy farm in the heart of Saskatchewan, young folk singer Ellen Froese is swiftly making her presence known in the Canadian music scene. As a folk artist performing both solo and with her backing band, The Hot Toddies, as well as being a past member of bluegrass/folk group In With The Old, Froese has been balancing multiple projects for the last few years. One of Ellen’s very first gigs was a 2014 opening slot for Catherine MacLellan at the Bassment in Saskatoon; two years later, she was headlining the venue herself after the success of her first solo album release, Get on With the Blues. From a young age and over a short period of time, she has clearly proven herself to be a valued addition to the world of folk music through her poignant vocals and raw talent in musicianship.
