FOLLY AND THE HUNTER is an indie folk band from Montreal. Catchy melodies, multiple harmonies and a subtly crafted mix of instruments blend to create warm and full compositions.

THE UNSEEN STRANGERS have ambitiously cultivated a musical identity shaped by good old-fashioned bluegrass, the limitless barrage of contemporary musical influences, and a relentlessly curious sense of humour.

The band has toured Eastern Canada three times, performing showcases at NXNE and OCFF to name a few, and is a favorite at festivals featuring genres spanning Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Rock, and Electronic.
