House of Doc

Album Title: Prairiegrass
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Folk
Trading in the bodhran for the banjo, but refusing to give up the right to the penny whistle, House of Doc is like the landlocked version of Great Big Sea. Perhaps it would be better (if not more musically accurate) to compare House of Doc to the Rankin Family, seeing as the five-piece band is comprised of three siblings and two in-laws. Creating music as toe-tapping as either of their Eastern brethren, HoD's second full-length, Prairiegrass, comes complete with strong traditional-folk vocal rounds and Simon & Garfunkel harmonies. There's no doubt that House of Doc possess enough talent and fun to garner themselves as big an audience as Great Big Sea has found, although their fans will be wearing cowboy hats, not sou'westers.
