"Fredericton's soft and beautiful Symphonium return to wash over us again, as always a breath of fresh air." -CBC

"There's something so mellow, so smooth about this Fredericton, New Brunswick-based indie folk outfit that ambient music might require a new pacifying sub-genre." - EXCLAIM!

New Brunswick contemporary folk group, The Olympic Symphonium, will head north this summer on a tour to the top of British Columbia’s Interior and into the Yukon for a week of shows.

The trio will perform at the Atlin Folk Festival alongside Bruce Cockburn, Old Man Luedecke, and Tim O’Brien, before heading to Yukon for shows in Whitehorse and Dawson City. Though they’ve been a band for about 10 years, it’s the first time The Olympic Symphonium have performed north of the 60th parallel.

The group are currently working on the follow-up to their 4th full-length, 2014’s Chance To Fate, by recording in various locations around Atlantic Canada this summer.
