Blue Rodeo

Origin: Ontario, Canada

Genres: Folk/Country, Rock

Blue Rodeo came into being in Toronto in 1984. Its two leaders, guitarists and singers Greg Keelor and Jim Cuddy, started out seven years earlier by creating the punk group The Hi Fis. For their second joint project, Fly to France, the two singer-songwriters tried their luck in New York City. Success would finally come their way when, going back to square one, they began playing a folk-roots-rock style of music that would become more refined with each album. With its first effort, Outskirts (1987), Blue Rodeo achieved major success back home. Over the years, the group added a dozen titles to its discography, including Casino (1991), Five Days in July (1994), The Days in Between (2000) and The Things We Left Behind (2010).
