‘Wise & Weathered’ - November 2010.

Kim Barlow,  Raghu Lokanathan & Catherine MacLellan.

Performing their songs in-the-round, the trio will back each other up to create a miniature folk-orchestra. All strong and original songwriters, they are also talented players on various instruments, and seasoned collaborators.




‘Fathers & Sons’ - November 2008.

Jim Byrnes, Steve Dawson, Amos Garrett & Doug Cox have been friends, companions and mentors to each other for a long time, like musical fathers and sons. They decided the time had come to take a family trip of their own. They now share the stage and their musical journey with each other and with anyone who can appreciate stellar guitar work that is rooted in blues, country, swing and folk.




'Pan Canadian New Folk Ensemble' - October 2008.

Kim Barlow, Christine Fellows, and Old Man Luedecke are cherished Canadian artists who span a wide geography as well as lyrical subject matter and musical styles. They will share the stage with accompanists on violin, cello and percussion. The ensemble will back each other up through two round-robin sets of brilliant, shimmering arrangements of original songs.
