So here is the update post about the concert at East Street Station on March 15! First off, what a great venue to relax and enjoy music, even when the venue is totally packed full. They hold regular coffeehouse events through out the year.
So if you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of rural living in Canada. I am always so happy to hear people talking and singing about our great country! Trent Severn has created music with a story, they use the slogan “Folk From Canada”, singing songs with familiar names in their titles such as Mulroney Times, Truscott, Like a Donnelly and Bluenose Dime. Their sound is big, three part harmony with banjo, bass, guitar and fiddle, it makes my heart smile and brings me back to when I was a kid. My toe was tapping the whole time and I really felt that if there was a dance-floor it would have been packed. Take a watch and listen to the video below, if you couldn’t make it to the concert Trent Severn has two gigs at the Dakota in Toronto on March 19 and 20 or check out their website www.trentsevernband.ca to get a longer listen and find out when there are upcoming shows!
I have been lucky in the past to be able to perform on the stage of the East Street Station and with the likes of Emm Gryner. Ashley Anderson and I have done back up singing for her in the past and after forming Trent Severn she asked if Ashley and I would open a show for them. We were delighted, and asked Jamie Wallace, Bud Mabon and Brenden Purser to perform us. It was so much fun to share the stage with these three wonderful ladies. Here is a short video of one of the songs we preformed!
