    The Fugitives 2017

    Once again Vancouver-based indie folk collective The Fugitives are heading to the UK for a tour of venues in the North.

    Described as ‘the missing link between Leonard Cohen and The Pogues’, the band has been nominated for Best Vocal Group at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Best Roots Album at the Western Canadian Music Awards, opened for Canadian folk icon Buffy Sainte-Marie and also played a slot at Glastonbury Festival as part of their UK tour in 2014.

    On reaching out to rural areas with their live music experience, spokesperson for The Fugitives Brendan McLeod, said: "All these shows are grass roots organised. They're put on by people in their community for people in their community. There's a spirit and aesthetic to that which matches what we're going for as a band. It means so much more to be sharing music with an audience you actually interact with, where you eat and sleep in their community, and hang out with before and after the show. It's more intimate, and meaningful. Also, we've been touring for ten years now, so we're getting older and creature comforts matter more. We want to make sure we play places where everyone can direct us to the best breakfast in town!"
