Ten Strings And A Goat Skin
Biography

Described as “A seamless, polished, barrel-drum-tight, rhythmically innovative and a wildly entertaining traditional music powerhouse” (The Guardian), Ten Strings And A Goat Skin continues to make waves both in North America and overseas. Recent winners at the East Coast Music Association Annual awards conference, they received the 2015 ECMA for World Music and have garnered numerous awards and nominations including several Canadian Folk Music Award nominations on their debut album, Corbeau. Their newest work, Auprès du Poêle is soon to be launched and eagerly anticipated.

Hailed on two continents as” infectious” and “the best in contemporary/traditional Celtic music” , Ten Strings And A Goat Skin is a young bilingual trad/folk/fusion trio, playing Irish, Acadian, French and original creations infused with modern and world rhythms. The band creates a fiery, contagious and unique sound which leaves audiences wanting more.

From Prince Edward Island, Canada, with seemingly ceaseless energy, Jesse Périard and brothers Rowen Gallant and Caleb Gallant ignite onstage as Ten Strings And A Goat Skin.
