Blue Hibou is a brand new group that combines the talents of veteran Yukon musician Kim Barlow, and newcomer Hélène Beaulieu. Barlow and Beaulieu are having a grand time finding new sounds that combine their formal backgrounds and songwriting styles, mixing english and french, banjo, ukulele, classical and electric guitars, country and experimental sounds. As often as possible, Micah Smith rounds out the trio on bass and lap steel guitar. The results are dreamy, magical and melodic.
