There is no lead singer in Trent Severn. There are no doubled tracks. There is a guitar or banjo (Me), a bass and stomp box (Gryner) and a fiddle (Bates). Our songs like “Snowy Soul”, “Muskoka Bound” and “Bluenose On A Dime” paint Canadian portraits. We tried to make the lyrics offer inside jokes our citizens will laugh at, yet nothing a welcome visitor couldn’t relate to and enjoy. I still giggle when we sing “Mulroney Times.”
A few tunes from Dayna’s live performance at Victoria House Concert B on April 4, 2012. Recorded by Todd Hooge and hosted by Andrew R Briggs.
The drive home began with a stop at the very first Tim Hortons in sight, for a quick cup of night fuel. Jory proudly presented his reusable coffee mug, and ordered a classic Tim Horton’s double double. After a minute or two, the young barrista presented Jory with his full mug and a paper cup beside it.
New year means new beginnings for us. Most of us trying to improve on some part of ourself we don’t like or fix whatever problem we have at the time. I do notice though, that wiser people, such as my parents, have stopped this ridiculous ritual and accepted their perceived shortcomings.
