From Vancouver, BC
“Despite their all-acoustic lineup, the Fugitives bring enough energy to the stage to light up a small city… The East Van quartet conjures up a sound that’s like the missing link between Leonard Cohen, the Pogues, and the immortal Shorty Shitstain.” – Georgia Straight
“The Fugitives are capable of achieving dizzying, Arcade Fire-ish crescendos, replete with parallel melodies, complex harmonies and brimming torrents of emotion.” – Uptown Magazine
“This show is simply brilliant.” – CBC

THE FUGITIVES, established in 2007, have released four records, which have been nominated for multiple Canadian Folk Music Awards and a Western Canadian Music Award. Their previous album, Everything Will Happen, spent ten weeks on the top ten Canadian folk charts, and earned them a support slot across Western Canada with Buffy Sainte-Marie and an appearance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival.
Their follow-up, THE PROMISE OF STRANGERS, is set for release on January 26, 2018 on Borealis Records.
The Fugitives are a folk collective headed by songwriters ADRIAN GLYNN and BRENDAN McLEOD, often joined by violinist CARLY FREY (Echo Nebraska), and banjo player ROB McLAREN (Union Duke).
Over the past ten years, their performance highlights have included major folk festivals across Canada, headlining slots in overseas Americana festivals, and a recently sold out run across the UK on its rural touring circuit.
In 2018, the band will tour across both Canada and the EU, and will venture into the United States via an official showcase at Folk Alliance International.
