Basset (Youth Discoveries)

Basset is a folk group with an unusual combination of mandolin, cello, fiddle, guitar, and more than a few quirks.  They came together in 2016 as students at the University of Toronto, and quickly earned a spot in Toronto’s small-time arts scene, feeding off the young and creative energy of the student population.

Since then, they have earned the approval of die-hard traditional folk lovers through feature spots at Another Bloody Folk Club, and opened for NEFE as part of the Hart House Concert Series.  They are currently rehearsing to record their debut EP, and are excited for their first festival appearance at Summerfolk.
