Tuned In Tuesday – Ten Strings and a Goat Skin

By: Amanda Hather

This week’s Tuned In Tuesday is brought to you by another talented band from Prince Edward Island. Ten Strings and a Goat Skin is a bilingual trio from Rustic and Suffolk, Prince Edward Island. They mix together traditional Maritime and Irish music to create a sound that is sure to have your feet tapping along. They received the award for the Roots-Traditional Album of the Year at the 2012 Music PEI awards, as well as being nominated for the ECMA Roots Traditional Group Recording of the Year, and Music PEI’s 2013 SpinCount Touring Artists of the Year.

Members Jesse Périard, Caleb Gallant, and Rowen Gallant released their latest album ‘Corbeau’ on June 1st, 2013. This album has a mix of instrumental, English, and French songs, and even includes a collaboration with Island favourite, Lennie Gallant. They released a video for their song “Huginn And Muninn”, which is just them performing the instrumental song on a snowy beach in Cymbria, Prince Edward Island. And although the video was released in May, I promise you that our province is not that snow covered in May…most of the time.

If you haven’t heard of this band and you like Maritime music, you should definitely check them out. They are also performing at the Slaight Rising Star Showcase at the ECMAs in Charlottetown, on April 3rd, 2014.
