~  Welcome to Near North Music 2014/15!  ~

First up in the 'hot off the press' news section …

Two ‘thumbs up’ to Stephen Fearing  joining the roster, both with his solo performances and with Ireland’s Andy White as Fearing & White, a show touring this coming year and not to be missed! Watch for their upcoming new album 'Tea & Confidences' – release date March 4th 2014 followed by touring Canada in spring, summer and fall!

Official showcasing at Womex alone brought the April Verch Band further interest from keen presenters and festivals in France, Austria, Germany, Ireland as well as bringing new agents onto the team!
Steve Dawson has moved to Nashville and has a great new solo acoustic (instrumental) album out: ‘Rattlesnake Cage.’  Steve will tour solo in the spring of 2014 and be spearheading the  ‘Black Hen Traveling Roadshow Revue’ in the coming fall of 2014.
Annie Lou welcomes Yukon fiddler and vocalist Sarah Hamilton, adding her unmistakable spark and energy!
‘Mysterious Boundaries’ is the new album by Tony McManus, forever breaking boundaries indeed.
Pharis and Jason Romero celebrate the birth of a baby girl this past October .. and next October will be recording their third album!
Dry Bones will be out Alberta way next March 2014, Kim Barlow has moved from the Yukon back to her roots in the Maritimes and Maeve Mackinnon had a fabulous Canadian tour of western festivals and theatres.
We are sure looking forward to working with you in 2014 and 2015 and hope to connect with you at Capacoa, Rideau, Pacific Contact, Trad Montreal and more !
