Over the past few years, the sound of Beams’ two female voices in harmony, combined with banjo, mandolin, lap steel guitar and singing saw, has carved a niche within Toronto’s alternative folk scene and perfectly reflects Toronto’s never-ending quest to honour the legacy of its musical past while breaking new artistic ground. As a true collective, the seven-piece ensemble’s sound pushes the boundaries of tradition and brings together elements of country, bluegrass, folk, and avant garde to create music that echoes long-dead Appalachian voices while bravely injecting that spirit into 21st century pop.
