Since the release of their debut album in 2013, The Jerry Cans have been steadily gaining national and international acclaim for their uniquely catchy mix of Inuktitut alt-country style, throat-singing and reggae. And their hard work has paid off. Last year The Jerry Cans were nominated for not one but two, JUNO awards - Breakthrough Group of the Year & Contemporary Roots Album of the Year. It was their first JUNO nomination and came after a big year of international travelling and shows.
The Jerry Cans overflow with high energy sounds that bring their hometown of Iqaluit, the Arctic and Northern Canada to the stage. The band perform many of their songs in Inukitut and are passionate about preserving this beautiful language. Their music evokes the contemporary North and the spirited people that reside there. The Jerry Cans' bright, fun arrangements, see bluegrass style fiddling, rhythmic throat singing and button accordion combine with catchy electric guitar, bass and drums with bluesy pop vocals and harmonies. The band's vast musical depth captivates listeners of any age and will have you dancing the night away.
If you thought The Jerry Cans sounded familiar it's because the band was on the schedule to play High Notes 2018 but had to cancel their performance to appear at their first ever JUNO Awards. We are thrilled to see The Jerry Cans finally grace the High Notes stage this year!
The Jerry Cans will take to the Pepsi Main Stage on Saturday March 23 with Tiger Moon and Diyet & The Love Soldiers on Saturday March 23.
