Habitat has just dropped the news that they are hosting the Great Lake Swimmers live in concert on July 22nd 2014, and oh my goodness gracious are we ever excited! Not only is this 5-piece band from the best country in the world (Canada, duh), but they also have the ability to capture the essence of what makes Canada so beautiful in their sounds. It’s as though you can hear the Rocky Mountains drifting through the soft hum of violin, and vast forests of pine being held within the strum of their guitars. The bands most recent album New Wild Everywhere was released April of last year and beautifully builds on the sounds of past albums, while adding fresh elements of instrumentation and vocal harmonies. The end result is a stunning creation of nostalgic and folk driven tunes that are the perfect accompaniment for your next cross-Canada roadtrip. Or just pop the record in during your daily Tim Hortons double double run, because let’s face it, that’s as Canadian as it gets! I had the pleasure of seeing lead vocalist for Great Lake Swimmers Tony Dekker play at the Streaming Cafe late last year, and if his performance is any indication of what the show will be like on the 22nd, I am beyond ecstatic!

Tickets are going to be flying off the shelves, so grab yours soon at participating stores or at the Habitat E-Store

Here’s a taste of what your ears will be enjoying during the show, have a listen!
