Americana, cowpunk, alt country, bluegrass, call it what you want, but roots music is a big part of our identity, so let's build this thing. Let's celebrate our homegrown artists. Let's bring this thing home. Just sayin'. . . #yeefreakinhaw - Allison Brock, Artistic Director Facebook Group
In a genre dominated by solo artists, The Dungarees stand out as a 5-man
brotherhood, dedicated to their love of traditional, high energy
country music. The Dungarees have performed at some of the biggest country festivals in
Canada, including Big Valley Jamboree and Dauphin CountryFest and
recently opened for Reba McEntire at Calgary’s Saddledome for The
Calgary Stampede. 10 days and 28 sets of music later, the boys wrapped up their Calgary
Stampede by opening for Blake Shelton! A great way to finish up a great
couple weeks. They have a definitive musical mandate; Take the undeniable lyrical
styling, twangy telecaster and steel guitar that they love from classic
country, and inject it with modern intensity and pop sensibility.
The band was nominated for 5 Edmonton Music Awards and took home Country Recording of the Year!
They just got on to the 2nd ballot as Roots Artist of the Year for the 2015 Canadian Country Music Awards!
