2021 Canadian Folk Music Award Winners
Frieden, Reuben and Maisie - Young Performers of the Year!
Harmonious: New Touring Show Debuts in Halifax
We were so happy to be part of the 2021 Philadelphia Folk Festival. Wish we could have been there in Philly but it had to be a virtual edition this year. A great line-up of international artists from Canada, England, Finland, Iberia, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales joined the awesome US artists. This year was special because the Canadian Folk Music Awards are the the new international festival partners! Thankyou to the CFMAs for bringing us into the PFF!
We are starting out 2021 by releasing the follow-up album to our Canadian Folk Music Awards winning debut recording. ‘Tell Me’ is available here and on Bandcamp. Our album launch virtual concert is on our YouTube channel now. ‘Tell Me’ takes four songs from our debut recording 'The Gilberts: One' and gives them a fuller multi-tracked treatment. And, we've added new songs we feel are among our best.
Hoping to see you, hear from you, and be seen and heard by you in 2021!
Frieden, Reuben and Maisie
We are delighted to be 2021 Canadian Folk Music Awards winners in the Young Performer(s) of the Year category on the back of our debut recording 'The Gilberts: One' released in 2020. It was very much a Covid recording. We had planned to record our debut in a professional studio in March but pivoted to recording at home as the pandemic changed - well everything. We decided that our approach to the recording should be very simple and pared down. All songs recorded live off the floor on one day, in one take, with one mic, in one room. 'The Gilberts: One'.
The Gilberts bring soulful lyrics, memorable melodies and close three part harmonies to their original songs. The 2021 Canadian Folk Music Awards winners are siblings Frieden, Reuben and Maisie. Influences include folk and contemporary folk, singer-songwriter, musical theatre and choral music. They have performed at Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival, Deep Roots, Full Circle, soft-seat theatres, weddings and celebrations, house parties, eateries, bars and many other venues. Their 2021 CFMAs win was in the Young Performer(s) of the Year category.
