The Unseen Strangers (CAN) - more talent from Toronto

Thanks to Adam Shier, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and driving force behind an up-and-coming Toronto-based band, the Unseen Strangers, for this news. The band - who come from the same vibrant bluegrass scene as the Slocan Ramblers and Foggy Hogtown Boys - were recently playing showcases during IBMA's World of Bluegrass in Raleigh, NC. In addition, Adam writes,

The band won the Bluegrass Band Competition at Delfest in 2014 and the band's new album Stranger places has been charting really strong Relix/Jambands.com, reaching #3 in the summer. The flatpick guitar instrumental 'Buster' (track 5) has received over 220,000 streams.

Adam supplies links to the Unseen Strangers' bio, photos, and videos; many more videos of them and their punchy newgrass style can be seen and heard on YouTube. Adam ends:

We have never toured Ireland but I think the Unseen Strangers would be a good fit for one of your future events!
