The Dungarees are country through and through. They define themselves as a true-grit country band and that couldn’t be more accurate. If you’re a fan of a modern-take on classic country, you need to listen to “Don’t Hold Back”, the latest single from the Albertan band.
James Murdoch, Robb Angus, Kiron Jhass, Darrek Anderson and Ben Shillabeer make up The Dungarees, recently nominated for 3 Edmonton Music Awards.
