The Duhks Release Sophomore LP, Tour

Published: 2004-12-20
After being signed to Sugar Hill Records earlier this year, the Winnipeg-based Celtic-folk band known as The Duhks are set to release their first album of all-new material for the North Carolina label. The self-titled record is to be released early next year, and the five-piece will be celebrating at a hometown bash. On February 17th, fans of The Duhks will be able to get their hands on the group's sophomore effort.

Following the Winnipeg CD Release Party, The Duhks will be heading out west for two dates in Alberta, and then will trek back east for a show in Toronto, all within the span of four days. Not only will the quartet be showing off their new tunes around their homeland, but they will also head down to the States to strut their stuff. January will see the band play two Maryland dates and two New York dates. The Duhks also have plans to play Florida and North Carolina later on in 2005. For more details on the band's shows in the USA, go to www.sugarhillrecords.com.

Before they signed with their current label, The Duhks released their debut album 'Your Sons and Your Daughters' independently. The 12-track album hit stores in the summer of 2003, to warm reviews from the roots community. At the band's official site (www.duhks.com) it's possible to listen to and download 3 tracks from The Duhks' debut album.

The Duhks upcoming dates:

February 17 Winnipeg, MN - West End Cultural Centre (CD Release Party)
February 19 Turner Valley, AB - Flare'N Derrick
February 20 Calgary, AB - Ironwood Stage and Grill
February 22 Toronto, ON - The Rivoli
