Biography

Active: 2000s

After a lengthy time jamming with each other at various folk festivals and fiddle camps, fiddler Lydia Garrison of the Trumansberg, NY-based Turtle Island Dream and banjoist Leonard Podolak and guitarist Jordan McConnell, both of the Winnipeg-based Duhks, finally joined forces in a side project called TurtleDuhks in 2007. TurtleDuhks specialize in old-timey and neo-traditional folk material that features Garrison's increasing familiarity with clawhammer banjo and drifts at times into Celtic territory, making them the perfect adjunct to the members' respective parent bands. The trio released a debut album, True Lover, on Sugar Hill Records (the same label that handles the Duhks' releases) in 2007. ~ Steve Leggett~ Rovi
