Let's Go Metric.

Take some roots music, add a little alt-country, and spice it up with a touch of classical and it all adds up to the group "Three Metre Day". The group grew out of the beloved Toronto band, "The Henrys" but have a sound all their own. "Metre" consists of High Marsh on violin, who's played with everyone from Bruce Coburn to Don Byron, Don Rooke on lap-style slide guitar whos played with the Cowboy Junkies and written several Hollywood soundtracks, and Michelle Willis on vocals and pump organ. They produce quiet, thought provoking music that's quite unique.
