Poor Angus is a Hamilton, Ontario based Progressive Celtic group. Mixing the music of past and present in exciting and dynamic presentations of traditional and original Scottish, Irish and East Coast pieces, this thoroughly contemporary Canadian ensemble endeavors to evade definition in their approach. Formed in 2005, this collection of musicians performs their music in a manner which appeals to both traditional purists, and modern audiences equally. Having shared the stage with the likes of Blue Rodeo, Kathleen Edwards, Matt Mayes, The Proclaimers, Bruce Guthro, Jeremy Fisher, and Nathan Rogers, they are equally at home on the big stage and in intimate pub settings.

Featuring the masterful highland and uilleann piping and tin whistles of Ross Griffiths and profound fiddling of virtuoso Andrew Bryan, this talented group has recently been joined by talented singer-songwriter Joel Guenther. The vocals, bodhran, guitar and mandolin playing of Brian LeBlanc and bass player DJ Moons completes the group. Poor Angus is noted specifically for impressive vocal harmony and this Celtic quintet always gets feet stomping and leaves audiences of all ages roaring for more. Having released their first album in 2007, which won the Hamilton Music Award for Folk/Traditional Album of the Year, this self-titled work has received airplay internationally. The second album, "Prime Cuts", won the 2009 HMA for Folk/Traditional album of the Year as well. Poor Angus' third album “Gathering” has been critically acclaimed, and the single “Something I Can't See” resulted in Poor Angus finishing in the final 4 out of 3000 competing acts in the CBC Searchlight national competition for best band. “Gathering” is a reflection of the band's musical evolution, featuring nods to the traditional in a more mainstream folk-indie style.

The combination of Scots, Irish and East Coast music styles in the Poor Angus performance bends every ear to diverse interpretations of Celtic music and ensures that one and all leave the show with a smile on their face and a song in their heart.
