Kyle Gryphon is a folk singer/songwriter living on the Southern Shore, NL. Writing tunes and songs for the past 15 years, Kyle has built up a repertoire of original and traditional music; raw, bare bones, downbeat songs and tunes on the 5-string banjo, button accordion, harmonica, and a few homemade contraptions from time to time. Lyrical subject matter is focused mostly on the darker side of folklore and general society – turmoil, humor, despair, and oddities past and present. Kyle often plays live accompanied by Kady Meaney on guitar.

Graham Wells is an Irish and Newfoundland traditional multi-instrumentalist and singer from St. John’s. He began playing the accordion with his grandfather at the age of 6. In 1994, Graham started providing musical accompaniment for the St. Pat’s Dancer’s. He performed across Canada with the group. Graham is also an innovator, introducing the semitone tuned system of two row button accordion to Newfoundland traditional music. In 2013 Graham completed an MA Traditional Irish Music Performance – Button Accordion.

Duane Andrews‘ music is the product of a great ear, an adventurous spirit and a love of music that is beyond category. Uniting what would seem to be impossible – traditional Newfoundland music with the swing jazz of the legendary Django Reinhardt, Andrews makes it not just work – he makes it soar.
