With a Master’s degree and a Juno award between them, it’s hard to call Nashville duo Oliver the Crow a “new band”. It just took a while for cellist Kaitlyn Raitz and fiddler Ben Plotnick to find each other.

Kaitlyn had been playing as a quasi-classical cellist, camouflaging with the best of them at McGill University, while secretly playing fiddle tunes, country and pop songs with folk bands and writers. Ben had been running from gig to gig as a gun for hire in his hometown of Calgary, and his adopted town of Toronto, cycling through Americana songwriters, bluegrass bands, and folk groups.

Decades of experience as chamber musicians helped them to blend instantly, but it’s their spontaneous, energetic yet subtle approach to folk music that sets them apart. NPR called Oliver the Crow an “inspired collaboration” in 2017. Find out why for yourself.
