Hello Darlin' is proud to announce the latest release from Quebec's
premier bluegrass band: Notre Dame de Grass.
Produced by David Travers-Smith (The Wailin' Jennys, Jane Siberry,
The Foggy Hogtown Boys), New Canada Road
original Canadian bluegrass numbers penned by lead singer and
bandleader Matt Large. The 14 track collection is rounded out by
songs written by Canadian folk music icon David Francey, exceptional
lyric and melody team Dave Clarke and Lucinda Chodan, local Montréal
songwriter Norm Dionne, and Appalachian poet the Elder Berryman
Hicks, along with two rousing instrumentals by Notre Dame de Grass
banjo wizard Guy Donis.
Recorded in Toronto in November of 2006, this exceptional release
explores a wide swath of traditional and contemporary bluegrass
sounds and themes. "We wanted to make a record that would be
received with praise by both the bluegrass community and the folk
and traditional roots community as well. I think we have been able
to make a record that will welcome the non-bluegrass listener into
the fold," says bandleader Matt Large.
