Critics hail Night Sun's musicianship, superbly crafted songs and eclectic sound. Night Sun has been featured in Billboard Magazine as a top Canadian act and awarded the Silver Star in contemporary folk music by the British Crossroads Music Awards. The Toronto Star has described their sound as "Celtic Zydeko with a Klezmer twist," while U.S. folk bible, Dirty Linen, simply calls it "60 minutes of grace."
Lead singer Ellen Hamilton is a winner of Ontario's Songs From the Heart and the band has been given a best folk recording award by CBC Radio's national arts program, Definitely Not the Opera. Night Sun has closed Canada Day ceremonies in Ottawa, performed on national television and radio and at major festivals across the country.
