We didn’t know a damn thing about either group when we stumbled across this video. Sometimes a performance is so instantly engaging you just have to share it though. We still don’t know much, but we do know you won’t regret checking out this backwoods performance. You might even learn a thing or two about shovel percussion.
O’Mally, as it turns out, are a British Columbia folk duo of banjo and violin. Here they expand to a trio, with a friend playing found-object percussion to cover fellow Canadian folkie Timber Timbre’s “Demon Host” by a dock in the woods. A canoe sits in the background, the only visible audience to this intimate session.
