and uncharted lands beyond.

The trio's debut album
First Flight is available through CDBaby and iTunes.

First Flight was nominated for a 2014 East Coast Music Award in the category of Traditional Instrumental Recording of the Year, as well as for a 2014 Music Nova Scotia Award in the category of Traditional/Roots Recording of the Year.

Papilio is excited to release their second album, Sociable Butterflies, in October 2018.
