Trent Severn has played Hugh’s twice in the past and the staff (amongst many others) wanted them back.
Merry Early Christmas Hugh’s Room.
Early in life one thinks that everything in the world that is magical, interesting and worthwhile is most certainly somewhere else. One can’t wait to grow up and explore this amazing planet we share. Eventually there comes a time when we open our eyes and realize what treasures lie in our own backyard, and how lucky our maple leaf is. Oh Canada!
Meet Trent Severn. Not the waterway system in Southern Ontario, but Trent Severn – the Canadiana band whose songs are fueled by the folklore of Ontario; whose lyrics pay tribute to Canadian legends.
Trent Severn is a trio from Stratford, Ontario comprised of indie songster Emm Gryner, the multi-talented Dayna Manning and violin whiz Lindsay Schlinder. When listening to their self-titled 10-track debut album, the first infuence that comes to mind is Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. There is no lead singer in Trent Severn. There are no doubled tracks. There is a guitar or banjo (Manning), a bass and stomp box (Gryner), a fiddle, and a shaker here and there. You can hear the watermarks of greats like Spirit of The West, Simon and Garfunkel, Tom Petty, Joni Mitchell, Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard. The sound of this band is CANADIANA based in Folk, Roots and Old Country.
Every note on the album is played, arranged and penned by the trio with the exception of a one track guest appearance by Joel Plaskett. Song titles like “Snowy Soul”, “Muskoka Bound” and “Bluenose On A Dime” paint instant Canadian portraits. The lyrics seamlessly oﬀer inside jokes our citizens will laugh at, yet nothing a welcome visitor couldn’t relate to and enjoy.
