Joe Wilson

Joe Wilson is a traditional country and western singer/songwriter from southern Manitoba. He is working on his debut album Denim and Roses, out this fall. He takes inspiration from classics like Waylon Jennings and Ernest Tubb and up and comers like Colter Wall and Tyler Childers.


Dodgy Mountain Men

Dodgy Mountain Men sling a home-brewed Montana stompgrass that goes down smooth but packs a bite, mixing the rhythms of bluegrass, the soul of the blues and the energy of rock ‘n’ roll with a plethora of other musical traditions to create a unique electro-acoustic experience. The group’s genre-bending experimentation and passion for American roots traditions weave together to emphasize their lyrical storytelling, creating a musical frontier rife with empty mason jars, outlaws, gypsy women and cold Montana storms. Add three distinct frontmen, a pension for sonic exploration and live performances that build to a fever pitch,and you’ve got a concoction that will make moonshiners proud and compel dancers to wear out the soles of their shoes.

DMM released their debut album, Stronger than Death, in 2012, and their follow up record, Changing Lanes, is a testament to the evolution of the group from a sideways folk outfit to a fully-recognized band pushing the borders of Americana. Boasting strong dynamics, bold songwriting and a rowdy live-energy feel, Changing Lanes is the work of a band who has heard the calling of the road and responded with song. Dodgy Mountain Men has toured from coast to coast, bringing their energetic sets to festivals including the John Hartford Memorial Festival (IN), Chinook Festival (WA), Oyster Ridge Music Festival (WY), Silver Cloud Campout(MT), Treefort Festival (ID), Red Ants Pants Festival and River City Roots (MT), to name a few. They have also had the pleasure of sharing more intimate stages with acts such as The Devil Makes Three, Greensky Bluegrass, The White Buffalo, Leftover Salmon, Scott H. Biram, Jerry Joseph and the Jackmormons, Pert Near Sandstone, Toubab Krewe, Fruition, Brothers Comatose and countless others.
