In 2019 the Calgary Folk Music Festival is celebrating its 40th anniversary. To mark the occasion 21 Calgary and Alberta-based acts were chosen for a special LP of cover songs by iconic artists who have appeared at the festival over the years. We have enjoyed our two appearances at the festival immensely and were honoured to be selected for this project. We decided upon a version of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" and gave it our own Greek music twist. The song was recorded at Calgary's National Music Centre and produced by Graham Lessard. The LP, entitled "Cover Art" also features such notables as Lindi Ortega, Corb Lund, 100 Mile House and Reuben and The Dark. It can be ordered here. This recording also is the debut of our new percussionist Robin Tufts. This behind-the-scenes video was filmed and edited by Chloe Diochnos.
