International award-winning Canadians Gordie Tentrees and Jaxon Haldane have performed 1000 plus concerns together since their Texas stage debut in 2014!

Armed with 10 instruments (banjo, mando, cigar box guitars, fiddle-saw, harmonica, resonator, acoustic, porch bass, snare) never repeating themselves onstage with brotherly harmonies and masterful storytelling.

From headlining Celtic Connections (Glasgow) to the Woody Guthrie Festival (Oklahoma) they never repeat, juggling the dark with the light, brotherly harmonies and masterful storytelling. Jaxon opens all concerts solo before joining Gordie for the main event!

2023 IAMA Winner (International Acoustic Music Award Winner).

Recently, they have each released solo records. Tentree’s Mean Old World was inspired by his journey as both a foster child and foster parent. For the past 3 years, Gordie has also been the solo non-indigenous male member of a land-based healing team operating on a horse ranch, writing songs with families in treatment and reconciling trauma. The Yukon based program, Shawthan Nazhi, recently won the $500,000 Arctic Inspiration Prize.

Haldane dropped One the Other Side in 2023, a concept album celebrating the unpredictability of life and his coming to terms with a return to living in Canada after years being based in Oklahoma. The music of Tentrees and Haldane draws from a century of North American music traditions and is rooted in truth, social justice, and the human condition. Their performances are heartfelt and honest, seldom shying away from challenging topics and touch subject matter.

Organic and holistic folk, this is the wild sound of freedom and the freedom to fly
