"We are proud to be able to call The Buccaneers our friends. We love their music and their performances. However it's their love of music and their enthusiasm for what they do that sets them apart from the average vocal trio." Russ Paris, Russ & Julie's House Concerts
The Buccaneers Bio: Their disarming chemistry, strong vocal harmonies, contemporary arrangements and passionate, high energy performances are captivating audiences from sea to shining sea with their unique brand of Aggressive Canadian Folk Music.
The band consists of Rodger Leeder (vocals, mandolin, bass guitar, guitar), Seán Sabraw (vocals, guitar, bass guitar, bodhran, mandolin), and Jim Samuelson (vocals, saxophone, penny whistles, tambourine, bones). They have established a strong hometown crowd, developed a school show that has reached students at over 150 schools across Canada, recorded and released their second album, are working on a third, and continue a hectic cross-country touring schedule.
"Aggressive Canadian Folk Music?" you may ask: try envisioning a blend of traditional music drive with contemporary attitude (plus the sporadic plundering of Klezmer licks, Latin rhythms, and the occasional 80's pop song!), resulting in a diversely-influenced music. Vocals dominate the sound, with tight three-part harmony arrangements in every tune and each band member trading the lead voice from song to song. These multi-talented multi-instrumentalists switch 'axes' as often as they swap vocals, and trade the songwriting and arranging duties for each piece a pretty democratic bunch of outlaws, indeed!
Presenting an eclectic, free-spirited bilingual live performance filled with humour and get-outta-your-seat-and-dance energy, The Buccaneers remain true to their roots while demonstrating the hard work, dedication and professionalism you'd expect from a band that has survived seven years on the road and whose members are still planning for at least seven more!
