Edmonton-based husband and wife duo Peter Stone and Denise MacKay, plus multi-instrumentalist Scott Zubot, have shared their unique brand of original transatlantic folk at shows and festivals near and far. Their beautiful harmonies, rich arrangements and captivating lyrics make their sound truly distinctive.
The new 100 mile house release, Wait With Me, is their third full-length album, packed with the lyrically driven roots tunes that gained this band a devoted following in the Canadian music scene and beyond. This haunting and highly personal song collection is the follow-up to hollow ponds, their award-winning 2011 release.
hollow ponds won the Edmonton Music Award for Folk/Roots Album of the Year in 2012 and was nominated for a 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for Roots Duo/Group Recording of the Year. It was featured in CBC's Key of A - Best of 2011 and CKUA's Top 100 of 2011. The track “Better, Still” won the Calgary Folk Festival songwriting contest Grand Prize, which led to the group performing at the festival in 2012.
Career highlights include performances at the 2010 Winter Olympics (Alberta House), the Calgary Folk Club and the Canmore Folk Festival, as well as showcasing at the 2011 and 2012 Folk Alliance International conferences.
