UPDATE: This contest is now closed.

Bruce Peninsula may not have made the shortlist for the 2009 Polaris Music Prize as we would have liked, but that doesn’t change the fact that their debut album A Mountain Is a Mouth is one of the more memorable Canadian folk albums of recent years. Deservedly so, they’re some of the first stars to come from the loosely-affiliated collective growing around Toronto’s Trinity Bellwoods Park, who may give that other Toronto social scene a run for their money in the coming years.

After the band concludes their American tour with an appearance at South by Southwest later this week, Bruce Peninsula will be returning to Canada to play a few shows and festivals. Courtesy of Collective Concerts, we’ve got two tickets to give away to their first show back in Toronto on March 25 at The Garrison. To enter to win, send an email to with “Bruce Peninsula” somewhere in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. This contest closes March 23 at midnight.
