The Duhks (pronounced like "ducks") are a 5-member Canadian folk-rock-Celtic-old time-bluegrass-contemporary-Latin-French Canadian-gospel (though usually described as folk rock or bluegrass) group. Four of them hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba and the fifth member is from Victoria, British Columbia. Their music draws heavily on all of the North American musical traditions, while successfully integrating Latin-music-influenced percussion. Their first album, Your Daughters & Your Sons was nominated for a Juno award, their eponymous second album won a Juno for Best Roots & Traditional Album by a Group and "Heaven's My Home" from their third album was nominated for the 2007 Grammy award for Best Country Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal.
As of March 2007, lead singer Jessica Havey is on an indefinite hiatus from the band. Her final performance with the band will be at the Live Oak music festival. Following this, singer Sarah Dugas will take over for the remainder of the tour. A permanent replacement will be decided upon by the band at a later time.
The band's name evolved from banjoist Leonard Podolak's earlier band Scruj MacDuhk, a play on the Disney character Scrooge McDuck.
