Multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and vocalist Ken Whitely is a Canadian music legend with a long and honoured history in the roots scene: seven JUNO nominations, 16 Maple Blues nominations, a Canadian Folk Music Award, a Genie Award for the best original song in a Canadian movie, lifetime achievement awards from Folk Music Ontario and the Mariposa Folk Festival, hundreds of appearances at folk festivals and concerts across North America, numerous performances with icons such as Pete Seeger, Tom Paxton, John Hammond, and Stan Rogers, and production work on 140 albums. Ken and his bandmates, Rosalyn Dennet (fiddle/vocals), Frank Evans (banjo/vocals) and Ben Whiteley (bass), create exciting music that is deeply rooted in traditional North American folk forms with echoes of string and jug band, blues, gospel, and swing.
