One half of Toronto’s roots-rock darlings The Actual Goners, award winning singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist Duncan Symonds fronts a stellar group of musicians playing music inspired by Dr. John, The Meters, Neville Bros and other staples of the New Orleans sound. Duncan had performed all over North America and Europe, alongside Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), Ed Robertson (Barenaked Ladies), Michael Doucet of Beausoleil and gospel artist Dionne Taylor, playing The New Orleans Jazz Festival, Preservation Hall, and Island Music Fest.
