A must-see for me.
A must-see for me.
One of my favorite Canadian artists (not surprising with a name of his band like this), name-checking two of my other favorite Canadian musicians, Tim Hus and Stompin’ Tom Connors. No wonder I love this.
Dylan’s classic gets a lovely reworking on this version by David Mallett, the video’s lovely too.
The last time I heard of Mr. Garrett Dutton aka G. Love was way back in the 90’s – and now I stumbled upon one of his Acoustic Guitar Magazine sessions.
He sure knows how to treat a guitar. Smashing.
To celebrate the arrival of my first Peter Mayer CD (Million Year Mind) in the mail earlier today,
here’s a live version of his song Awake (not on that CD). It’s a fine, lovely and thoughtful song with some mighty fine guitar work.
Folk music. The best.
An old fave of mine, from the Weakerthans’ album Reconstruction Site, the only album by them I know and own. Never got around to exploring their output more thoroughly although it would most probably be worth it.
This is ‘just’ a living room/kitchen home recording, and a splendid one at that. Her voice is excellent, and so’s the song. Written by Greg Brown’s wife Iris Dement, and covered by Brown on his most recent studio album Freak Flag this version sounds entirely different and decidedly non-countryish. I love it a lot.I listend to Lauren Hoffman and her then-band September 67 in the late 1990’s, so it’s been quite a while, but she’s definitely still got a lot of talent and is using it in her current band The Secret Storm.
This is an unofficial video I found on YouTube to celebrate the arrival of my copy of The Pines’ latest, splendid album Above The Prairie (released early February 2016). More info and my review of the album to follow in the next few weeks. In the meantime, all that’s left for me to say is: Enjoy.
Something to lift my (and hopefully yours too) spirit. God knows I need that today.
