Grit Laskin – Earthly Concerns
A new collection of songs and tunes from a fine singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. “Grit Laskin. . . is remarkable”-The Midnight Special, WFMT, Chicago. Grit Laskin is a talented musician, a published author, and an award-winning luthier with guitar orders stretching into the year 2002. A longtime member of the infamous “Friends of Fiddler’s Green,” he is also known for his incisive, witty, and provocative songs. With “Earthly Concerns,” Grit once again delivers an album of profound insight and depth. “Earthly Concerns” is an album of songs and tunes concerned with human folly and endeavors. From the deeply moving title song to “The Two Centuries,” an epic historical debate, to “Hi Sal, Have You Checked Your Email,” an hilarious commentary on today’s technologies, to “Resister,” a modern protest song, Grit explores the contemporary and topical issues of our time. A sprinkling of original dance tunes (“Flipside,” “Driving to the Woods/Sorry I’m Late”) round out the album. The arrangements range from solo voice and one instrument to full band with percussion, and several of the songs feature a full string quartet. Produced by Ken Whiteley, the album features a host of talented musicians, including George Koller, Lenny Solomon, John Sheard, Brian Leonard, Kathryn Moses, Chris Whiteley, J.P. Cormier, and more. “Laskin manages to work irony, humour, and social commentary into songs that are well-worded and thought provoking.”-Halifax Chronicle Herald
