The Silver Hearts are a Peterborough-based band formed in January of 2000. With amazing energy, poignant song writing and instrumentation unlike anything you've seen, The Silver Hearts have quickly become one of the most popular live bands in Ontario. A blend of accordion, fiddles, piano, brass, theremin and more, the music of the Silver Hearts evades description by modern genres.

A mixture of western roots, tin-pan-alley, blues and ragtime that has been described at various times as a "beer orchestra", "ghost town western music", "music for an Irish wake" and "a brothel blues orchestra", The Silver Hearts take forgotten music and reinvent it with a new sense of style and vitality.

Their accomplishments to date include:

A weekly gig at Peterborough's historic Montreal house, which is consistently packed.

Spectacular New Years Eve 2001 and 2002 shows with the Sadies, Greg Keelor of Blue Rodeo, Bob Egan of Wilco and The Good Brothers.

They are the subject of three documentary films.

They have composed and performed an original score for accomplished playwright Josh Meissner's western Grim Miracle.

Opening the final show at the historic El Mocambo.

Featured act in Canadian Music Week, North by Northeast,

Mariposa in the City, The Peterborough Folk Festival, Mariposa Folk Festival and Ottawa Bluesfest in 2002.

Shows in at the Art Gallery of Hamilton, The National Arts Center in Ottawa and a live recording for CBC radio at Harbourfront Center in Toronto.

Voted album of the year and performance of the year (at Harbourfront Centre) by CBC's Bandwidth.

A tour west in summer of 2003 including the Winnipeg, Calgary and Vancouver Folk Festivals!

DownTown's right, the Peterborough CD release last Friday was really good. They sounded a lot more together than they do for the weekly MoHo gigs - better sound at the Gordon Best too though. THey played the entire new album (18 songs?) during the first set, then oldies for the 2nd set. There were seafood platters being served, including the best mussels I've ever experienced. The new CD is KILLER!!!!!!!
