FOLK ROCK | Jubilee Riots 

When Canadian folk group Jubilee Riots (formerly known as Enter the Haggis) made its last album, "Penny Black," the members wanted to interact with the fans as much as they do at live shows. To do this, they drew inspiration for the albums' songs off of letters that fans wrote to the group. The group's music doesn't just tell stories of the members, but of their supporters as well. The music varies between country and rock sounds but the folk elements are always there, whether it be in the storytelling or the interesting instrument choices. These guys put on quite the live performance, and who knows, maybe if you give them a letter they'll write a song about it on their next album.

Jubilee Riots performs with Sisters of Murphy on Friday, February 27, at The Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 8 p.m. $15-$18.;
