The Gertrudes sound like an ol’ time saloon party in deep space … experimental noise beds with down home folk passengers, frolicking through original material, played by a veritable orchestra of instruments.

My favourite folkestra – The Gertrudes
Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene)
The Gertrudes are a tidal wave of great vibes, a super soulful celebration, a Canadian gem! Their new disc Till The Morning Shows Her Face To Me picks up where Dawn Time Riot left off and blasts off into the stratosphere. Don’t get left at the side of the road on this one. Get on for the ride. The Gertrudes will blow your mind.
Dave Clark (Rheostatics, Woodshed Orchestra)
