- Nominated for the ECMA 2012 Roots Traditional Group Recording of the Year 

- Nominated for two 2013 Canadian Folk Music Awards 

TEN STRINGS AND A GOAT SKIN, a young bilingual traditional /folk/ fusion trio celebrating the music of the Irish, Acadian, French & Maritime cultures, is known for a rare musicality that belies the musicians ages.  Integrating modern & world rhythms with traditional & original tunes, they create a fiery, contagious & unique sound that is increasingly catching the attention of Canadian & international stages.  With humor and seemingly ceaseless energy, Jesse Périard, Rowen and Caleb Gallant ignite onstage as Ten Strings And A Goat Skin. 

"These three young guys are extraordinary musicians and they are unlike any trad/Acadian band you’ve ever heard. You’ve got to see them to believe them."
Mike Campbell
The Carleton, Halifax Urban Folk Festival

"After seeing Ten Strings And A Goat Skin recently I am determined to open as many doors as I can for them…  They have advanced from playing music to becoming the music…  Their connecting with the audience and bringing the traditions forward to a style that is clearly their own, now prepares them for the International stage…"
