The Abrams Brothers are fourth generation musicians with musical roots reaching back to their great-grandparents.
They have been touring together for more than a decade. They became the youngest Canadians to perform at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and in 2005 they were named Emerging Artist of the Year at the Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards.
Over the past few years, the Abrams Brothers have been a constant on the Canadian Festival circuit. The have toured Europe and have performed several times at the Jacob’s Ladder Folk Festival in Israel.
They fuse bluegrass with country and folk-rock. Their latest album, Northern Redemption – which comes on the heels of Blue on Brown, an album of songs by Arlo Guthrie and Bob Dylan – draws upon the experiences of growing up playing music with four generations of Abrams musicians.
They have been on stage since they were 7 and 10 years old and are continuing the family tradition of performing and recording bluegrass and folk music.
