Toronto-based folk duo, Basset, are full of timeless heart. Acoustic songwriters Sam Clark and Yasmine Shelton will take you through the city streets in the hours before the world has woken, or to a corrugated steel home north of the treeline.
Basset bring a deep love of the natural world to their gorgeously meditative performance, exploring various themes of life in change, their travels around Northern Ontario, the Canadian and American prairies and the many characters who have crossed their paths.
With comparisons to The Milk Carton Kids, Hozier, and Bon Iver, their inventiveness shines on fiddle and intricate harmonies, with Shelton and Clark’s voices wrapping around each other like twin flames in a warm fire.
“Of the many impressive groups I have heard in the past two years, Basset … rises to the top” – The Midnight Show
