Americana, roots music, rougharoundtheedges folk. Canadian songwriter Lynne Hanson prefers “porch music with a little red dirt.” Hanson songs are like a favorite pair of jeans. They’re rough around the edges, faded and worn through in spots, with a bit of honestlyacquired dirt ground into the seams. And they’re expressed in a rich voice coupled with accomplished guitar playing that demands repeated listening.
The Sick Sick Sicks
The Sick Sick Sicks get you grooving with their innovative Djangobilly music. Fronted by the highly entertaining lead singer, Maxim “Banjo Man” Cossette, you never know what will happen from one song to the next; Rob tearing up the fret board in a blaze of fingerpicking, Red dancing through the crowd with his bass or Kosta jumping behind the drums with a soul lifting solo. From Gypsy jazz, rockabilly, surf and bluegrass to punk and Americana, they’re on a mad, mad trip and they’re taking you along for the ride.
