Playing Irish, Acadian, French & original creations, infused with modern and world rhythms, they have created a fiery, contagious & unique sound that has them touring throughout Canada, the US & Europe. Industry heavyweights reference their rare musicality as belying the members young ages of 19 & 20 years.
From Prince Edward Island, Canada, with seemingly ceaseless energy, Jesse Périard and brothers Rowen Gallant and Caleb Gallant, ignite onstage as Ten Strings And A Goat Skin.
Many Moulettes met and started playing music together when they were 15-17. After a couple of EPs and singles they released an acclaimed debut album on Balling The Jack/Sotones in 2010, which found its way on to several Best Of The Year lists. They also won an Innovation Award and best group from the prestigious Fatea roots-music website and got nominated for best band by the alternative Brit awards. Their charismatic, idiosyncratic yet poppy brand of progressive, psychedelic neo-classical folk rock has enthralled crowds at many festivals as varied as Bestival, Glastonbury, End of the Road and Cropredy.
