Pharis & Jason Romero are pure craftspeople and top-notch musicians. They’ve won four Juno awards (2023 JUNO for Best Trad Roots Album Tell ‘Em You Were Gold) and seven Canadian Folk Music Awards, connecting with audiences through their music, lifestyle, and the sense of joy and ease that comes from this small-town renaissance couple. They live in the wilderness town of Horsefly, British Columbia where they write songs, learn old music, and work as renowned banjo builders. Their songs seem to come from easy and forthright places about traveling and rural life, but in their openness are deeply moving and give the listener space for a unique and personal experience. There’s time to become absorbed in Jason’s solo banjo meditations, to move with the deep pulse of their guitar playing, to reflect on life’s beauty, and to let the music lift you into a state of well-being. They frequently bring out a desire to play banjo, to sing with another person, and to dig up the oldest, scratchiest record you can find and write a song just like it.
