Day three of TURF brought audiences the stylings of a hillbilly jack-of-all-trades five-piece formally known as The Felice Brothers.
Switching off on vocal duties and instrument responsibilities, and ranging in sound as a result, The Felice Brothers showed Toronto what a democratic Americana act from Catskills, NY can do to the traditional notion of a folk group frontman.
Performing liquor-soaked tracks like “Whiskey in My Whiskey” couldn’t have been bad news for the Canadian Club sponsors on site, either.
