Music – Edmonton, ALB

Bardic Form is a dynamic and highly engaging acoustic duo consisting of Justin Song and Reece Runco. They are known for their electrifying and captivating performance, and have drawn fans from many different walks of life. While they both grew up in central Alberta, their musical inspiration came from traditions found overseas. The music that they identify strongly with is the timeless and the traditional, with a focus on instrumental expression to carry emotion and melody. Justin and Reece largely perform original compositions, and their performance is as dynamic as their influences to keep your attention from the start. They draw inspiration from intense and exciting melodic riffs in folk and power metal, beautiful and lulling passages in classical and global music, as well as the inexplicable and untraceable expression that comes from playing an instrument. They incorporate influences from Celtic traditional tunes and sets (including the use of the Celtic whistle), Eastern European melodies and progressions, percussive rhythmic flavours of Flamenco, and intense passages from melodic metal. These elements become fused in what has been agreed to be a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable act. ...more
