About The Duhks

After Leonard Podolak's band, Scruj MacDuhk, broke up, the Appalachian-style claw-hammer banjoist decided that this gave him the perfect opportunity to start another group, one that would fuse eclectic modern sounds with traditional roots. In 2002, the Duhks self-released Your Daughters and Your Sons in Canada. The album did well enough to bring the band a contract with North-Carolina-based Sugar Hill Records, who issued the Duhks' self-titled, Béla Fleck-produced record in 2005. The next year, Migrations, which was produced by labelmate and contemporary bluegrass stalwart Tim O'Brien, came out, followed by an extensive tour and an appearance at 2007's MerleFest. ~ Marisa Brown
