Saturday Matinee

saturday-matinee_cameron_family_singers_honky-tonkSo they’re not really family—so what.

These guys have been playing Saturday matinees at Toronto’s Cameron Public House for nine years, so they’re probably closer than kin. This is stripped-down Honky-tonk, with a bit of Cajun and Celtic mixed in for good measure. About half the songs are covers—Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” and “Don’t Fence Me In” by Cole Porter, for example. The rest are band originals. But it’s all very cool. I think I need to make a pilgrimage to Canada to check these guys out. In the meantime, this record will suffice quite nicely.
