The Kindness Killers

It's always nice to see lap steel players singing out front, so I was delighted to come across a review of The Kindness Killers in the Brunswick News. Lap guitarist Nick Ferrio shares the vocal spotlight with bandmate Julia Fenn in this folk quartet. Nick plays a 6 string National in an authentic Appalachian style. There are virtually no Hawaiian, swing or blues influences in his playing - it's such pure folk/country that you can barely call tell it's electric. Delightful! You can hear and download their EP at

The Kindness Killers are from Peterborough, Ontario, and they run a busy tour schedule all over eastern Canada. This weekend they're at the Lawnya Vawnya Festival in St. John's, Newfoundland. For more information, visit their web site
