Celtic Connections 2020

Aptly for Celtic Connections, Canadian singer-songwriter Cam Penner describes his 2018 album, At War With Reason, as “songs born from the winter; from the darkness.” Equally aptly, though, “there is a light in every one of them.” Urgently addressing contemporary social/political themes, and again featuring longtime sideman/producer Jon Wood, the album’s multilayered acoustic/electronic textures, spoken-word vocals, percussive grooves and heartfelt lyrics make for compelling, immersive listening.

Formed in 2017, and self-styled as “Anglo-Irish Girl Power Bluegrass”, Midnight Skyracer have already won two IBMA Award nominations, and album-sleeve endorsement on 2018’s debut Fire from Americana icon Ron Block. “This hard-driving five-piece has captured lightning in a bottle.” (Bluegrass Unlimited)
