Тут і Там performs a unique and progressive style of Ukrainian folk music. Hailing from Saskatoon, the five-piece band has taken Canada by storm, playing at Vegreville’s Pysanka Festival, Malanka in the Mountains in Jasper, Saskatoon’s Vesna Festival, Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival in Dauphin, and the Montreal and Toronto Ukrainian Festivals. Most recently, the band visited Sydney, Australia to perform at the 65th Anniversary of Ukrainian-Australian immigration.
Each member has an extensive background in many varied styles of music, which when fused together creates Тут і Там’s signature sound. Their latest album (affectionately known as the ”white album”) was released in 2010 and is the natural result of a decade of performing together.
Stacked with three-part harmonies and masterful instrumental work, the third album follows in the tradition of the band’s first two releases and recalls the energy of their hits Лемко (Lemko), Ой Болить м'я головонька (My Head’s Killing Me), and Два Дубки (2 Oaks). The band is currently working on a new album to be released in 2014. Тут і Там’s creative arrangements and sincere musicality transcend the studio and contribute to their dynamic live shows.
Тут і Там is John Dickinson (guitar), Matt Gruza (accordion), Carissa Klopoushak (violin, vocals), Mark Klopoushak (drums, vocals), and Steve Kodak (bass, vocals).
Tyt i Tam has three albums available for purchase in store, on iTunes, and on CDbaby.com.
