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
