Happy St. Patrick's Day, y'all
Happy St. Patrick's day! We're taking the Shamrock day to the country, with the easy to love alt-country folk of Cuff the Duke--plus some hardcore Irish whimsey with writer Peggy Worrell's "Liam the Leprechaun".
And YES--there is still time to enter the Youth Write for Radio competition--deadline in March 19 at midnight!
Cuff the Duke started out in Oshawa before making the move to Toronto in 2002. Their debut album, Life Stories For Minimum Wage was released on Three Gut Records, at the time one of the most exciting indie-labels in Canada. Their second and third albums, Cuff The Duke and Sidelines And The City respectively, were both released on Hardwood Records alongside label mates Basia Bulat and Hayden. Their last album, Way Down Here was co-produced by Blue Rodeo's Greg Keelor at his beautiful barn studio in rural Ontario.
Here's their latest video. We picked them up at Regina's The Exchange.
Lynda Monahan is the author of two collections of poetry, A Slow Dance in the Flames and What My Body Knows, both published by Coteau Books. Her work has been published in a number of Canadian literary magazines and broadcast nationally on CBC radio. She has recently completed a third manuscript Red Boots in the Snow.
