UPCOMING TOUR DATES

With the release of We Win Some We Lose The Once have delivered a thoughtful and playful assembly of songs soaked with the poetic charm and sunny sadness of the trio’s collective disposition. CBC’s Jeff Reilly said We Win Some We Lose “leaves [him] in a perpetual state of wistful, anthemic longing. An innocence that nevertheless leaves [him] with the sense that we are flirting with tragedy.”

The Once has earned two JUNO nominations for best Roots/Traditional album, the most recent in acknowledgement of Departures (2014). The band has collected a trio of Canadian Folk Music Awards, numerous ECMA awards and was named Artist of the Year by the Newfoundland & Labrador Arts Council. Well known for its haunting interpretations of traditional music, The Once has bloomed a sound that truly represents their up-springing inner artistry while their roots dig ever deeper into their idolized island of Newfoundland.
