Folk Road Show
Style: Indie pop, folk
The international indie-folk group known as Folk Road Show is anything but a conventional band. Consisting of Dominique Fricot (CAN), Benjamin James Caldwell (AUS), O.J. Caarls (NL), and Nick Petrowich (CAN) they toured both Canada and Europe extensively from their inception in 2014.
With a sound that ranges from folky americana to indie-pop - reminiscent of (a modern-day) Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, The Band, or Fleet Foxes - the four have the ability to transform large clubs into intimate venues and make a living room feel like Carnegie Hall. All band members share songwriting duties; constantly switching between instruments and joining together for four-part harmonies.
Folk Road Show offer a dynamic show, ranging from a-capella intermezzos to full-band indie rock. In just four years, the band has toured Canada and Europe ten times, playing over 350 shows at numerous venues and festivals across both continents.
Folk Road Show released their self-titled debut album in 2016, the follow-up Gold in 2017, and an EP, ‘Thought You’d Never Ask’, in the spring of 2019, before the pandemic sent them each back to their respective corners of the world. However, they are currently working on new material, and the year 2023 will see the release of new songs, as well as a tour in the summer months to take care of, in their words, “Unfinished Business”.
