If the Borch Brother’s music style were to be personified, the heart and soul would be East Coast Fiddle music with a spine of old tyme fiddle. The head would be folk and each appendage would be reaching into jazz, swing, ukrainian and celtic.
The Borch Brothers are Rigel (fiddle), Marten (guitar, vocals, harmonica and kick-drum) and Garnet (accordion, piano and vocals). They released their first album since 2006, Gathering Change, in June, 2021 and will be releasing an EP in June 2022. Beyond being musicians, the Borch Brothers are also activists, community builders and performers. Their aspirations aren’t for fame or fortune but instead to play more of their favourite gigs: where they connect with the audience as they bounce, dance and sing along.
