Godspeed, Great Lake Swimmers!

I am digging the new 'Pulling on a line' video. Hmm. How to describe it? Tom Sawyer meets David Lynch in wooded parlor light amidst pink plumes of smoke and a motley crew of stage animals: a blue-eyed castaway crooner, horned child creatures, and an enigmatic silver-haired tree man. Weirdly wonderful imagery that stays true to the earnest and enchanting vibe of the Great Lake Swimmers.

*Just a friendly reminder that the band will be performing songs from their gorgeous new album Lost Channels tomorrow night (Thursday March 26, 8pm) at Calgary's Grace Presbyterian Church. There are still a few tickets remaining for this all-ages show, and if you are looking for an extraordinary acoustic experience to lift you out of this cold winter spell you cannot do finer that the GLS. See the following link for more ticket information.

And watch for our special tribute feature on the swimmers in the debut issue of UPPERCASE magazine. Fans of the band are also invited to follow the tour on Tony Dekker's twitter site.

We are wishing them a safe passage tonight across the snowy prairies. Godspeed swimmers, but easy on the pedal!
