The Broken Songs Band

The Broken Songs Band began with spoken word, bass, percussion and some sax; first, for the Winnipeg Symphony’s New Music Festival, then later orchestrated in the recording studio by Glenn Buhr. After several years going from project to project in several Canadian cities with a collection of different musicians (sometimes even full orchestra), the new Broken Songs Band is now a quartet: Sweatman on vocals and harmonica, Buhr on guitar, piano and vocals, along with guitarist/vocalist Allan Beardsell, and bassist Gilles Fournier.
