Editorial Reviews

Product Description

"In a collage culture, where the ability to blend genres (and transcend them) is crucial, The Duhks show all signs of being a band with some staying power and true, untethered originality."-The Associated Press. The Duhks self-titled release in 2005 won them universal acceptance as THE up-and-coming neo folk-rock band. Visually stunning, musically inventive and emotionally stirring, The Duhks garnered massive critical acclaim, as well, topping year-end lists, winning a Juno award, and successfully touring the world. With the release of Migrations, The Duhks' profile will doubtlessly elevate, as the talented young quintet continues to develop its singular brand of eclecticism with an album that is increasingly confident, personal, and distinctive. Co-Produced by Tim O'Brien & Gary Paczosa (Nickel Creek, John Prine, Alison Krauss + Union Station). "A tasty blend of...folk traditions with hard-grooving world beats, country, bluegrass, jazz, and a healthy injection of catchy, soulful pop." -Paste Magazine

Amazon.com

With each release, this Canadian quintet's adventurous, energetic eclecticism sounds more like a signature fusion (and less like bluegrass, despite Tania Elizabeth's fiddle and Leonard Podolak's banjo). The material on Migrations ranges all over the map--geographical as well as musical--with a pair of spirituals steeped in the tradition of Georgia's Sea Islands ("Moses, Don't Get Lost" and "Turtle Dove"), a zydeco romp through Cajun country ("Down to the River"), a ballad in tribute to an Irish patriot ("Who Will Take My Place?"), a syncopated revival of Tracy Chapman's "Mountains o' Things" and the ragtime blues of "Ol' Cook Pot." While a pair of instrumental medleys highlight the musicians' acoustic virtuosity, the soulful vocals of Jessee Havey and their ability to fashion songs from a variety of sources into such a cohesive whole distinguish the Duhks from folk acts, jam bands, or any other musical category. --Don McLeese

Format: Audio CD
Playing Time - 39:38 -- The Duhks' progressive "neo-folk" or "cerebral folk" music is best described as highly-arranged folk and Americana that draws inspiration from various genres such as old time string band, Celtic, soul, gospel, folk, and zydeco. The band was nominated for the 2005 Emerging Artist of the Year Award by the Americana Music Association. "Migrations" has about 2/3 of the music that their self-titled 2005 album did, but you'll find that the 11 tracks and 16-page CD jacket don't leave us feeling short-changed. In fact, the project took home the 2006 Juno Award for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year in the Group category.

Hailing from Winnipeg, the quintet likes to invite a few guest artists into their mix; in this case, Tim O'Brien (5 tracks), Luke Bulla (1 track), and Katie Herzig (1 track). "Migrations" was produced by Gary Paczosa and Tim O'Brien who suggested songs, contributed additional lyrics, and even played or sang along in Tim's case. In keeping with their successful personalized sound, we hear well-crafted, creative songs with soul-stirring vocals and striking guitar, banjo, bass, fiddle and percussion. Low whistle and Uilleann pipes also appear in their kettle of sound. Three of the five Duhks provide vocals, both lead and harmonies. Whether covering Tracy Chapman's "Mountains O'Things" or serving up a Zydeco-flavored "Down to the River," they manage to find some novel material to infuse with their stamp. Tracy's song, of course, encourages us to "renounce all those material things" to save our souls. An instrumental medley of two originals with a Cape Breton tune illustrates how The Duhks blend tradition with their own individuality.

Don't expect any Nashville twangy voices, or a fire-burning Choctaw Breakdown. But if you enjoy folk music of any kind, these recordings will touch you deeply. If you've never listened to the Duhks, this album is one to try -- not just one song, but at least 4 or 5 to understand the wide range of style they have to offer. You'll find upbeat, downbeat, gospel, "northern" bluegrass, ballads, and more.

This is yet another Duhks album whose music will not leave you alone. Some of the songs are so haunting, you can't help replaying it over and over. In particular, "Three Fishers" (giving us a glimps of Tania Elizabeth's quiet but wonderfully lyrical voice) and "Who Will Take My Place" (sung with lead singer Jessee Havey's signature power and depth of emotion) leave you needing to hear the songs again and again.

Overall, the album is more dominated by great gospel/blues tunes than their first two albums ("Ol' Cook Pot" stands out as well) but there are still reminders of the band's wild energy ("Down To The River" and the instrumental tunes).

Once again, the Duhks have graced us with another oustanding album.

This is there best effort yet. You have a couple traditional Celtic fiddle tunes and everything from old gospel tunes to new almost rock songs.

There lead singer ,Jessee Havey, has an awesome voice that really shines on the bluesy tunes like "Ol' Cook Pot" and the Tracey Chapman cover "Mountains O' Things". "Who Will Take My Place" is absolutely haunting.

Most of this CD is cover tunes but they do an excellent job with some classic songs.

I highly recommend this CD to anyone that likes Celtic and/or blues music. Yeah, I know, weird combination. They make it work.

This band has almost perfectly fused the styles of bluegrass with folk adding touches of traditional spirituals. I've had the fortune of seeing them twice in small venues in Nashville, and they are capable of producing this wonderful sound almost effortlessly. This is evidence of how truly super-talented this group is.

This album seems a less-inhibited expansion on the style we were exposed to on the previous album (produced by Alison Krauss). So much heart-felt soul seems to be poured into each song. I highly recommend this and either of their two other works.

Music is such a personal thing. These guys are a little different in the country genre, all clever and clearly talented musicians, but not all the tracks worked for me. I had read some other reviews and impulsively bought two CDs at one time, but had I listened to either one first I would probably not have bought the second. I don't mind hearing them now and again but I seldom bother, and they're not on my portable MP3 player despite that fact that the 40GB is not full - so that tells a story. But hey, I guess I'm not their target audience, though I am a session musician (well, singer anyway) myself, folk, country, rock, celtic, etc.

The Duhks were already wonderful, but they just keep getting better with each new release. This time they take a turn toward more pop, more accessible music and rely more heavily on Jessee Havey's wonderful husky voice. In the process though, they give up nothing Duhk-ish; none of their great technical skills; none of their innovative arrangements. This is probably my top pick for 2006. Buy it if you know what's good for your ears.
