Never miss another 'The Paperboys' show
An astonishingly eclectic folk-rock quintet from Canada. 'The Paperboys know how to grab melody hooks in pop friendly songs, while fast and flashy banjo and whistles pace the jigs and reels' - Dirty Linen.'The most exuberant band I've heard in ages. Breathtaking' - Folk Roots.
Mexican Son Jarocho mixed in with Irish Jigs and Reels and a good dose of Country and Bluegrass. It has healthy servings of Ska, Soca and African Highlife and we've been known to throw in a little White Boy Reggae. Of course it also has strains of Soul, Pop and Funk although we are by no means a funk band. It is mostly Acoustic although we also like Electric guitars.
It is Singer-Songwriter based but not the coffee house variety. It is definitely FOLK
music, but not in the Kumbaya style. It has a deep respect and appreciation for tradition (Bluegrass, Old Time, Celtic, Son) but it's by no means Traditional. It Rocks incredibly hard and is extremely danceable, but that is not to say it can't be mellow and slow and beautiful.
It can be heart breaking, but also joyous. It is never dark or angst ridden, and always full of hope - but not in the 'Up With People' kind of way. It's not Jazz, although we like Jazz a lot. It's not heavy metal or punk or grunge, although we love Rush and AC/DC. It is World Roots Music. It's POP music. It is GOOD music. It has a tendency to connect people and means a lot to many folks.
