Durham County Poets grew out the Chateauguay Valley and all live along its river.
The poets were born of a coffee house in Ormstown Quebec. The town used to be called “Durham” in the old days - hence the name. The Poets have known each other for years before getting together as a group and started composing songs at once-a-week song writing sessions at the local café in the village. People started coming just to hear these tunes being created and that’s when they knew they were on to something good.
After a few months it was decided to record these tunes. A cottage along the quiet riverbank served as a recording space and “Where the River Flows” was created. It all just kind of happened by itself or so it seems. With a lifetime full of all kinds music influences - this rootsy, folky, bluesy band sounds as familiar as it does fresh!
