As devoted fans of bluegrass, traditional music, and folk music, Murder Murder were drawn to the murky ethical themes of the murder ballad and its enduring nature. Murder ballads have often captured the essence and atmosphere of a dark, lawless and violent frontier. Northern Ontario, although never romanticized in the way that the Wild West or Canada’s far north were during the gold rush era, was once such a place – with a wealth of stories and characters. Murder Murder are: Jon Danyliw – Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin; Sam Cassio – Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin; Geoff McCausland – Fiddle; Barry Miles – Vocals, Banjo, Dobro; Kris Dickson – Upright Bass and Steph Duchesne – Percussion.
