New tunes from DYAD

Those Canadian winters are long and dark, which might explain why Vancouver-based trio DYAD explores the shadows in old-time music with such dedication and creativity. They’ve just posted some new tunes, with my favorite being “Cripple.” Check out their MySpace page for more from their new formation and a couple of their classic tunes.

From their band site:

DYAD came together to play traditional American Old Time music after delving into everything from indie-rock and punk to classical and traditional music of various cultures. The Vancouver-based trio of Kori Miyanishi (vocals, banjo, fiddle), Leah Abramson (vocals, guitar) and Mark Beaty (cello, vocals), digs deep into song and instrumental traditions of the Appalachian mountain region of the USA, while incorporating these varied influences and expanding traditional themes into modern arrangements of original, traditional and contemporary song.

    Very nice, tasteful old time music. One of their CDs is on EMusic, too, for those of us who subscribe to that service.
