Acclaimed folk trio Trent Severn creates songs that are perhaps best described as “Canadian History in Harmony.” The two-time Canadian Folk Music Award-nominated band follows in the footsteps of pioneering Canadian troubadours, and “picks up where Stompin’ Tom left off” (Maclean’s Magazine).

Trent Severn’s third album ‘Portage’ is scheduled for release on April 7, 2017. This album will continue with the band’s strong DIY approach – they are self-managed but also self-produced by Juno Nominee Dayna Manning.

2017 will be marked with the celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. For a band whose performances have become synonymous with all things Canadian, this will be a special year. During the band’s festival appearances, performances with symphonies and shows across this country, expect their songs to resonate a little stronger. We will all be celebrating the past, present and future of Canada, and that is exactly what Trent Severn will be doing with their new album ‘Portage’.
