Night Sun – Drive
Based in Kingston Ontario, Night Sun is known for eclectic, invigorating acoustic music and superbly crafted songs. Critical accolades abound for their musicianship, song-writing and dynamic stage presence. Weaving clarinet, mandolin, guitars, keyboards, bass, percussion and passionate vocals into an enchanting melange, Night Sun’ music could be described as “folk-jazz-klez-grass”. Drive is Night Sun’s fifth CD since their origins on Baffin Island in the early 90’s, and the first to be released from their own studio: Leopard Frog Studio. Taking a noticeable step towards blues and jazz, with original music written primarily by Ellen Hamilton, this CD features Night Sun’s first recorded cover, a song by Woody Guthrie. Produced by Chris Coleman and Ellen Hamilton.
