The Abrams Brothers, veteran performers barely out of high school, John, James, and cousin Elijah have been touring for nearly a decade with as many credits to their name. The group became the youngest Canadians to ever perform on the Grand Ole Opry in 2005, and in 2006 became recipients of the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violin as recognition of their youth and achievement. They have also become festival favorites across Canada and even overseas where they toured through Europe in 2006 and performed at the 2007 and 2008 Jacob’s Ladder Folk Festival in Israel. The group recently released their fourth album entitled “Northern Redemption” on the United for Opportunity label; working with producer Chris Brown (The Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, Tony Scherr, Ani DiFranco, The Barenaked Ladies) to transition from the music of their roots to their own distinct sound. Earlier recordings include a tribute album of songs by Arlo Guthrie and Bob Dylan – “Blue on Brown” (2009, United for Opportunity), “Iron Sharpens Iron” (2007) and “Carrying On” (2004).
