Ian Walsh I saw this amazing collection of musicians at The Good Will Social Club in Winnipeg and their performance was nothing short of spectacular. No frills and no banter with the crowd just a fastidious fervour for their craft. Truly a transcendental live listening experience. Many chords and melodies throughout the night gave me goosebumps and created in me a an almost soothing meditative calm. They know themselves so well and it really shows. 100% best concert of the last few years for me. Favorite track: Achibaba.
