The Borch Brothers

The Borch Brothers

If the Borch Brother’s music style were to be personified, the heart and soul would be East Coast Fiddle music with a spine of old tyme fiddle. The head would be folk and each appendage would be reaching into jazz, swing, ukrainian and celtic.

The Borch Brothers are Rigel (fiddle), Marten (guitar, vocals, harmonica and kick-drum) and Garnet (accordion, piano and vocals). At 19 years old, Rigel was one of the youngest contestants in the 2019 Canadian Grand Masters Fiddle Competition and previously played in the Edmonton Youth Orchestra. Marten is a passionate full time musician and multi-instrumentalist who developed his style in a late-teens solo career. Garnet grew up playing piano and developed his accordion skills by busking the streets of Europe.

The Borch Brothers have been playing gigs together since about 2003. At that point, the average age of the band was about 10 years old and the youngest member, Rigel, was only 2 years old! They released their first album since 2006, Gathering Change, in June, 2021. Beyond being musicians, the Borch Brothers are also activists, community builders and performers. Their aspirations aren’t for fame or fortune but instead to play more of their favourite gigs: where they take their audience on an adventure as they bounce, dance and sing along.
