London’s own Heartaches Stringband make a joyful ruckus. The band features the close harmony singing by husband and wife duo Amanda Lynn Stubley and Martin Horak, joined by London’s reigning master of the mandolin, James Cummins. Horak’s driving fiddle is occasionally switched up for cello, and when the time is right, Stubley puts down her guitar and digs deep to her roots with clawhammer banjo.
Friends in life, pros on the stage, the Heartaches romp their way through lost Canadian classics, bluegrass instrumentals, and songs of love and regret, combining rarely heard oldtime gems and inspired original tunes. You’d be crying in your beer if your toes weren’t tapping!
