The Dust Poets


The Dust Poets is cool acoustic roots and wry urban folk, a five-piece outfit of fast-picking slick-singing throwbacks from Middle Canada. Their diverse sound combines bits of twangy old country, irreverent folk pop, and punchy acoustic swing. Hooky arrangements and razor-sharp vocals showcase sarcastic, insightful, and occasionally off-the-wall original songs. What started out as a cowboy poetry backup duo from Brandon, Manitoba soon grew into a five-piece party band, whose repertoire of country swing standards and euro-pop covers gradually gave way to an upbeat and unmistakable original sound.
