The Fugitives

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 26th on Borealis Records.

Happy New Year!

It was a busy and stupidly fun year for all of us here at Fugitopia. We were honoured to be nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award (Songwriter of the Year), a Canadian Folk Award (Vocal Group of the Year), a German Record Critics’ Circle Award (Roots Album of the Year) and for Album of the Year from Blues and Roots Radio International.

We also got to tour almost all of Canada, including some very far-reaching places in Ontario, like Red Lake and Sioux Lookout, as well as returning to old haunts in Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg and Western Canada. We returned to Germany for the fourth time and did our first ever show in the Czech Republic at a festival outside Prague.

Needless to say we’re grateful to get to do what we do and we thank everyone who supports our music and keeps coming back to our shows after all these years. 2019 will be a little lighter for us on the tour front as we focus on insular activities like writing and recording but look for us on the summer 2019 Canadian folk fest circuit, we hope to make it out to a few.

With love and gratitude and a glass to the heavens,

xo The Fugitives

Brand New Tour Video for "Till It Feels Like Home"!

We made a tour video! This is our first one ever. Shot on our Eastern Canada "Promise of Strangers" tour in January 2018 this features rare behind-the-scenes footage of us doing all the drugs and getting thrown off-stage by the Detroit Police Department. (Wait, that was Straight Outta Compton). This is mostly us being idiots and looking really tired. The folk'n'roll lifestyle!
