Post #262: The Wilderness of Manitoba

***Just released remakes of 3 Christmas carols.  
Debut album was released in May.***
(Post #5 of 7 for 'Family Tree' week.  What is the 'Family Tree'?  Click HERE to find out.)

For today's post, I followed a link Stornoway had on their site, taking me to a write up on another blog.

The link took me to We Write Lists, based out of London, which is where I found a separate piece they had done in September on The Wilderness of Manitoba.


From Toronto, Canada, they released their debut album in May of this year, entitled When You Left the Fire.  This is where you will find "November".

Using primarily a banjo, cello, mandolin and guitar, they describe themselves as 'chamber folk', which I think is a perfect description.

Before writing this post, and after I had listened to some snippets of the songs, I couldn't wait.  I have already purchased and downloaded the album.  I love it!!

They have also just released remakes of three traditional Christmas Carols.  "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel", "We Three Kings", and "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".

Check out this link HERE, to hear all three.

Each of their three versions are absolutely beautiful (especially the a cappella of "We Three Kings").

And the exact same thing can be said for their debut.

Please support this artist!!!
