This week, we present Saskatchewan folk duo Kacy & Clayton performing live at the Artery in Edmonton, Alberta. The band performs songs from their latest album, The Day is Past and Gone, which features adaptations of traditional folk songs made popular by the likes of Shirley Collins, Lead Belly, and Sandy Denny.

Kacy & Clayton are second cousins who grew up in Wood Mountain Hills, Saskatchewan, and they credit their knowledge of, and affinity for folk music to Kacy’s grandfather and Clayton’s Great-Uncle, Carl Anderson. The duo released their self-titled debut in 2011, recorded when Kacy was just 16. Their sophomore effort, The Day is Past and Gone, was produced by Ryan Boldt of The Deep Dark Woods – a band which also features Clayton Linthicum on guitar.
