Silver Wolf Band - A Pocket Full of Rocks

Location: Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL

Silver Wolf Band is a trio of folk-rockers from Happy Valley-Goose Bay in Labrador that originally formed in 2007. All three of its founding members – Matthew Barrett, along with Jamie and Justin Jackman who are brothers - were raised in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, though Matthew is originally from St. John’s, and Justin was born in Hopedale.
