Oh My Darling emerged out of an old-time jam session in the winter of 2008. Four years later, they have released four critically acclaimed albums and are touring ceaselessly. Their songs, although strikingly original, feature diverse musical influences which include classic country, bluegrass, old-time and francophone traditional styles. Dynamic vocals, brilliant claw-hammer banjo, inspired fiddling and unique bass grooves enhance thoughtful songwriting and arranging. Their passion for performing is a force of nature, and that force is winning the hearts of all who come to experience their live shows.

All four members of Oh My Darling were born and raised in Winnipeg. Individually, they are some of the hottest players on the Canadian roots scene, but there is strength in numbers, and combined, they are as strong as steel. They are:

Allison de Groot (banjo/vocals) is one of Canada's best claw-hammer banjo players. She brings a calm and steadiness to the band with her personality, as well as her rock solid banjo lines.

Marie-Josée Dandeneau (bass/vocals) is a veteran of the music scene and has toured with multiple bands over the years. Tours which has taken her, and her unique style of bass playing, all over the world.

Rosalyn Dennett (fiddle/vocals) is a life-long scholar of music. Her passion for learning is but a reflection of her passion for her craft. She puts a fierce enthusiasm into her work with an informed edge.

Vanessa Kuzina (guitar/vocals) began to discover her voice in various singing groups in high school. Her lyrics tell stories about life on the prairies and probe at emotions that run deep through the human experience.

"Oh My Darling is the real deal - they have an innate ability to blend very authentic old-time sounds and sensibility with exceptional songwriting and great grooves." - Steve Dawson - Black Head Music
