As Covid-19 considerations evolve and ease in Ontario, Turpin's Trail is starting to emerge from a bit of a hiatus. Chris, Jon and Noah will be forging on as a trio, though we'll sometimes be joined by some special guests. Playing with Brian for these past few years has been our great pleasure, and we're very proud of the music that we made together.

With a closet-full of over a dozen instruments and a wealth of great original and traditional songs and tunes, Turpin's Trail brings together three veterans of Kingston's music scene. Individually and as a band the members of Turpin's Trail have shared the stage with the likes of David Francey, Sarah Harmer, Ron Hynes, J.P. Cormier, Fred Eaglesmith, Leahy, and the Masterless Men. Turpin's Trail has played such great venues as the Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque and Kingston's Leon's Centre, and embarked on multiple tours of Atlantic Canada as far east as Newfoundland. In 2017 they were the headline act at the Brimstone Head Folk Festival in beautiful Fogo, NL.
