Woodland Telegraph would like to take you into the heart of these places on their Canadian Landscape Trilogy, three distinct albums capturing the feeling, history and culture of the landscapes that mark Canada’s national identity and imagination. Northern Folklore is proud to present the second installment in this trilogy: From the Fields….
Written and recorded in Southern Alberta, songwriter Matthew Lovegrove wanted to capture the atmosphere and feeling of the prairies while exploring the stories of the people who call it home. Crafting songs from personal anecdotes, newspaper clippings and historical books, the lyrics tell of the hardship and beauty of the plains, backed by a musical landscape rich in vocal harmony and diverse instrumentation. You will hear atmospheric folk songs and stomping bluegrass alongside orchestral washes and fierce electric guitar. In Little Seed Rising we meet Saskatchewan farmers sued by a multi-national corporation, their message of hope resounding with choral vocals and driving train-track banjos. In the lush instrumentation of Niagara Escarpment, Ontario’s farmland winter nights are described with a dream-like ambience. From the harsh realities of prairie living to the awe of watching a harvest moon rising over the horizon, these songs are held together by a love of place and a passion to map out the landscape of our country…
