The Boxcar Boys


The Boxcar Boys have been creating unique original music, weaving together their take on folk songs, klezmer, and traditional jazz, since 2010. They’ve released 3 albums, their debut “Don’t Be Blue”, Canadian Folk Music Award nominated “Rye Whiskey”, and acclaimed 3rd album “Cicada Ball”. Their diverse and innovative sound and celebratory performances have brought the band to a wide variety of venues and folk and jazz festivals in Canada and the USA.

“Fantastic players, with fantastic presence. Their spontaneous after-hours street performance at our 2012 festival was one of those magical festival moments, and has set a precedent for future festivals.”
– Northern Lights Festival Boréal

“Delightful stuff!”
– Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

“Cicada Ball absolutely flies from the first moment… Breathtakingly jaunty… a palpable love of the music”
