Murder Murder

Murder Murder is a Bloodgrass band (Bluegrass + Outlaw Country + Exclusively Murder Ballads) hailing from the frozen forests of the Ontario Northland. Their tales of death are filled with life by the kick of the suitcase, saw of the fiddle, and roll of the banjo.

As devoted fans of bluegrass, traditional music, and folk music, we were drawn to the murky ethical themes of the murder ballad form and to its enduring nature. Many of the earliest examples are the sole surviving records of victims of violent crimes. Oftentimes murder ballads capture the essence and atmosphere of a dark, lawless and violent frontier. Northern Ontario, although never romanticized in the way that the Wild West or the far north during the gold rush era were, was once such a place – with a wealth of stories and characters. The lack of mythology associated with Northern Ontario is troubling, and thus we felt it our responsibility to create our own mythology.


Black Tooth Grinn
Black Tooth Grinn is from Sydney NS, a town known as much for the remnants of industrial exploitation as it is for a deep culture of music. This influences drives them to push a little harder to shine through the smoke and fog. Playing to sellout crowds in Cape Breton, the band has perfected a unique sound that modernizes the old town New Orleans blues aesthetic with the huge guitars of classic rock. The show appeals to your most carnal senses, pushing you to take that extra shot, stay for one more song. You’re going to feel it the next morning.
