Holiday in Canadadia
December 22nd, 2005
Seasons greets all! Our annual fundraiser for the Salvation Army was last night at the Grad Club in Kingston and if I remember correctly it was a grand success. Mr Chris Brown opened the night with a few charming christmas numbers and Dan Whiteley joined him to ease the crowd into mood for a excellent night of music. LW & the Wrongs careened through a set of new songs before giving up the stage to Jacksy and there three piece rock-pop grooves. Then benefit alumni Sarah Harmer belted out a heartfelt version of John Prines seasonal, prison town hit, "Christmas in Prison" with Chris on piano. I seem to recall the dulcet sounds and lyrical lilt of "Winter Wonderland" before she launched into "The Ring" from her new cd. The crowd was loving it and it all went through the roof with Buck Jones blasting through an awesome set of their barrelhouse country originals (topped off with a smoking rendition of Roger Millers, "My Uncle Used to Love Me But She Died"). After that glory Chris Brown took the guitar in hand and wowed 'em with a few of his potent, lovely killer songs while Slaves of Spanky prepared for the final onslaught. Them boys outta Tamworth and their band of genius' funked the shit outta that ole building and the dance party kicked in hard. I found a copy of their new cd in my coat this morning courtesy of Captain Footbags and Chuck Badminton. You have to see S.O.S. they are amazing.
Well I'll just go round up the gang and get our stuff from the bar before it gets locked in until next year, not that I'm playing any gigs until Heffley Creek, B.C. on jan 6th and 7th. That's where it's going down next with Carolyn Mark, Tolan and Diona and who else, who knows?

Luther's Got the Blues
December 2nd, 2005
On her latest cd "I'm a Mountain", ms. Sarah Harmer has included a cover "Luther's Got the Blues" in with her fine compositions. She assembled a band of old and new friends to play roots music on her "I Love the Escarpment" tour back in the spring and the magic in the music lead them into the studio for a few days to record this gem of an album. Go out and buy one for yourself and one for a Christmas present!
