The Sweet Lowdown is an acoustic old time/bluegrass/folk trio based in Victoria, B.C. comprised of Amanda Blied (guitar/vocals), Shanti Bremer (banjo/vocals) and Miriam Sonstenes (fiddle/vocals). Formed by a mutual passion for lilting old time grooves, driving bluegrass, and sweet harmonies, the trio blends to form a sound that is both unique and timeless. Winners of this year’s M Award for Favourite Roots/World Music, The Sweet Lowdown has been gaining an audience both at home and across the province and Canada.
The group recorded their second album (and first as a trio) this year with sound engineer/producer/musician Andrew Collins (Foggy Hogtown Boys, Creaking Tree String Quartet) and released it June 2011. To see and hear The Sweet Lowdown, please visit them at www.thesweetlowdown.ca.
