The Duhks, Deep Chatham 

When: Sat., July 13, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $9-25

Listening to the major-label debut by Durham Americana forgers Delta Rae last year, I couldn't help but wonder what had happened to The Duhks. Long before Delta Rae applied unbridled rock stunts to vaguely roots-based songs, Winnipeg folk hybridists The Duhks seemed poised for stardom by pushing a similar combination of country-rock, soul and pop, led by the sort of bracing vocals that suggested bigger stages. They'd galvanize the edges with a little Cajun music or a bluegrass run, pushing toward the mainstream by making music that accepted its rules and then challenged them. They haven't made a new record in five years, while Delta Rae's own hollow anthems have pushed them to late-night television. The Duhks now return with their original lineup and new songs, perhaps ready at last to twist their threads in brighter light. Deep Chatham opens. —Grayson Currin
