The Strumbellas have been garnering quite a bit of recognition since their latest album We Still Move On Dance Floors was released in Canada last fall. They won a 2014 Juno for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year and a SiriusXM Indies award for Folk Group of the Year. Most recently they made the Long List for the Polaris Music Prize.
Lead singer Simon Ward says the recognition helps when you’re spending so much time on the road.
“It gets a little discouraging,” Ward says. “So that kind of stuff just keeps you going.”
