American Alt Country meets Folk and Westcoast harmony! Canyon Dust (formerly ‘Canyon’) performs originals inspired by the ‘Laurel Canyon – Westcoast’ tradition of the 60’s and 70’s and interprets some of the greatest songs written in this period. Canyon Dust’s debut album features their signature four-part harmonies set in songs about deserts, forests, raging water, open highways and broken hearts.

Canyon Dust blends acoustic and electric instruments, at times singing around a single condenser mic in a traditional Bluegrass style. Formed in 2015 by singer, songwriter and guitarist Peter Chapman, Canyon Dust features Louise Dempsey, with Bruce Packard (Coolgrass, Concordia Mandolin Orchestra) and Josh Bennett (The Bombay Royale), Canyon Dust will perform their great originals alongside their interpretations of Laurel Canyon legends like Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Fleetwood Mac and the Byrds among others.
