Hailed by the New York Times as one of the artists at the forefront of the neo-folk movement, The Duhks (pronounced like "ducks") are a 5-member Canadian folk-rock-Celtic-old time-bluegrass group consisting of Leonard Podolak, Sarah Dugas, Tania Elizabeth, Jordan McConnell and Christian Dugas.
Four of them hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba and the fifth member is from Victoria, British Columbia. Their music draws heavily on all of the North American musical traditions, while successfully integrating Latin-music-influenced percussion.
Their first album, Your Daughters & Your Sons was nominated for a Juno award, the equivalent of the Canadian Grammy Award, their eponymous second album won a Juno for Best Roots & Traditional Album by a Group, and Heaven's My Home, from their third album, was nominated for the 2007 Grammy award for Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
The Duhks are currently touring in support of their new album, Fast Paced World (Sugar Hill/EMI), which was just nominated for a 2009 JUNO Award for Roots & Traditional Album of The Year: Group.
