A cultural fixture in Wolfville, The Dungaree Brothers began their musical career playing at the Anvil Tavern from the 1970s to the early 1990s. They then took a break from public appearances, using an old welding shed in Port Williams as their jamming headquarters. Since the turn of the century, the “d’bros” have been in the public eye once again, delighting crowds in local venues.
Their most recent CD, The South Mountain Swamp Rock Opera was recorded with The Hupman Brothers Band and was nominated for Blues Recording of the Year at both Nova Scotia Music Week and the East Coast Music Awards. Grapevine writer, Laura MacDonald reports, “The tracks cover a broad palate, from the salty, sweaty blues tunes to sweeter, folky ballads, yet never stray from the mountain-made lyrics that tie them all together. Scott Prudence’s vocals sound like black magic, the riffs and solos readily drip with pork fat and beans, and the beats are as big and dirty as an industrial rototiller. All these elements come together to create a primal texture you can feel ooga-chugging deep down in your gut”.
We are delighted to have this homegrown talent play for us at the 2011 Deep Roots Music Festival!
