Villages are a folk group from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Made up of a group of cousins, Villages set out to create a sound inspired by their home in the Maritimes along with the traditional folk songs of England, Scotland and Ireland. The result is a collection of original songs that feature poetic storytelling over modern and traditional sounds. Working with producer Joel Plaskett, Villages has released several singles which have been featured on CBC Radio, BBC Radio and a number of other Canadian radio stations.
