I first saw the Breakmen performing at a little stage behind the booths in the middle of the midway at the Edmonton Capital City Exhibition in 2006.  Their tight harmonies and obvious respect for bluegrass, country and roots music delighted me from the first song.    It was my pleasure to interview Ben, Matt and Lee at the Mariposa Folk Festival last summer.

I only captured a part of the Breakmen and Deep Dark Wood’s powerful rendition of Belong to that Band at Mariposa 2010.  Fortunately someone else got it on video and they posted it on their youtube channel.
