Since 2001, The Foggy Hogtown Boys have been delivering the goods to bluegrass fans across North America and around the world. What started as a weekly bar gig among friends has grown into one of Canada's most popular roots music acts.

The FHB are known for having a sound that, although not bound to traditional conservatism, doesn't sound like a bluegrass band trying to make new country or pop hits. They are noted for having the ability to slide between being a bluegrass band or an old-time band with remarkable ease and authority. Even a casual listener can tell that the FHB owe as much to the country music that happened pre-1945 as to the golden age of bluegrass.

The band's personnel reads like a who's who of Canadian roots music, with members having played in some of the genre's most influential acts; (Jughead, Heartbreak Hill, The Creaking Tree String Quartet, The David Francey Trio, New Country Rehab). Recognized and respected in the profession, each player in the FHB is a sought after session musician.

These days, it's rare to see a band that keeps the same personnel for even a few years. With the exception of one change in 2007, The FHB has had a constant line-up going on 11 years now. This is a testament to the friendship and deep musical bond that is shared between the members of the band – something that becomes obvious to anyone who attends a live FHB show. There are no stars in the band; each member is a featured singer and instrumentalist, whose strengths are supported by the rest of the ensemble.
