Saturday May 2nd - Songwriter's Circle featuring Tom Savage, Chris Brown, Luther Wright, Seamus Cowan

A couple of cool shows coming up over the next couple of weeks in the Kingston area. Hope you can make it out and spread the word to your Kingston/Westport/Perth/Battersea area friends.

First up, this Saturday at The Cove in Westport :
 



SONGWRITER'S CIRCLE feat. Chris Brown, Seamus Cowan, Tom Savage & Luther Wright
Should me more than once a year but these nights have really turned into something special. Chris and Luther have worked together for years now and Tom helped inspire Seamus back in the day. It's all coming together now.
CHRIS BROWN has produced a who's who of Canadian talent and started with the Bourbon Tabernacle Choir and has been a part of Chris & Kate Fenner duo for a long time.
SEAMUS COWAN is from Westport and his family run The Cove. His bands Bullmoose and Spoon River experienced considerable CanRock longevity and he has played with Spencer Evans and Jazz Night for close to two decades. Notably, he toured with The High Dials of Montreal for two years.
TOM SAVAGE is a road warrior, songwriter a la Dylan-esque stories. Plays guitar with Hendrix poise and Neil intensity. His band Tom Savage Trio have toured Canada lots and the new Foley Mountain Playboys are his bluegrass gem.
LUTHER WRIGHT is a Canadian folk/bluegrass hero. His band Luther Wright & The Wrongs cross many boundaries, states and provinces. The recreated Floyd's The Wall and have toured for about 2 decades now. The Hootenannys he does with Jenny Whiteley and others are legendary.
Snuggle in for evening of orginal songs and creative renditions of classic beauties. Wha-La! Enjoy!-11pm

Found this concert in the CFRC archives...




Back in February, me and the boys ( Kevin Davidson on fiddle, Kevin Bowers on lead guitar, and Bonz Bowering on Drums) helped out the CFRC fundraising drive by performing at the launch party at Musiikki Cafe. I remembered the other day that the concert was broadcast live on the air that night. I searched the archives, and sure enough there it was.

It was a bit rough sounding. I tried to clean up the sound a bit and edited out the calls for cash from the station. It's just the music here.

It was a really cool vibe in the room that night and I'm happy to have found this document of it. Have a listen and share it around. Some songs on here that have never been recorded before.




SET LIST

1. Keep Movin' On
2. Driftin'
3. Train Keeps A Rollin'
4. Sleepy Small Town
5. Amarillo
6. Nothing But A Bad Dream (w/ Megan Hamilton)
