Heralded folk trio The Once find themselves wrestling with this and many other questions about their artistic and sonic identity, though that's not stopping them from making the music they want to make and subsequently watching their audience grow.
Geraldine Hollett and Phil Churchill chat with Andrew about the unique, theatre-based genesis of their band, how they've made a name for themselves, their approach to live performance, and the making of their latest full-length album, Time Enough, which finds the group venturing into new musical territory with no regard for stylistic labels or confines.
