Diverse instrumentation and soaring five-part vocal harmonies characterize the unique alternative folk sound of Halifax-based band, The Barrowdowns. Born in a cold dark Albertan winter in 2014, the band was started by Halifax musicians Kendra Breen and Rowan Swain. Upon their move back to Nova Scotia, the duo joined up with veteran Halifax musicians Dave Fultz, Adam Martin, and Neal Read to create an eclectic brand of folk music that is both energetic and haunting. With gripping songs that stick with you long after the last chord has rung out, The Barrowdowns create music that will keep you spellbound—even while you stomp your feet. Enjoying a busy spring and summer touring schedule in 2016, the band recently released their debut full-length album on May 19, 2017.
