Murder Murder

Northern Ontario’s Murder Murder are a full string band with suitcase percussion who create a unique blend of bluegrass and outlaw country. Virtuosic musicianship and evocative songwriting are backed by a wealth of original and traditional murder ballads.
As devoted fans of bluegrass, and folk music – the band was drawn to the murky ethical themes of the murder ballad form and those stories that evoke a dark and lawless frontier. Although Northern Ontario has never been romanticized like the Wild West or the gold rush North, it was once such a place – with a wealth of stories and characters. The lack of mythology associated with Northern Ontario is troubling, and thus we felt it our responsibility to create our own mythology.
