album review: great lake swimmers
  • TUESDAY, MARCH 31, 2009

  • Posted by:

For years now, Great Lake Swimmers have been writing beautifully melodic and poetic folk ballads up in their northern home of Ontario, Canada. While they have a couple of songs that may be classified as rock, rarely does their music rise beyond an aroused hush. Consistency has always been one of the band's strong suits. Since the band's inception they haven't had a misstep; each album being as good if not better than the last. This holds true for their latest album, Lost Channels (Nettwerk), on which the band takes listeners on a relaxing boat ride through the Thousand Islands region of Canada. ..Keep Reading.. -Greg Lozoff Great Lake Swimmers on Tour 31 Mar - The Tractor Tavern - Seattle, Washington 1 Apr - Doug Fir - Portland, Oregon 3 Apr - The Bottom Of The Hill - San Francisco, California 4 Apr - Spaceland - Los Angeles, California 5 Apr - Plush - Tucson, Arizona 7 Apr - Stubb's Bar-B-Q - Austin, Texas 8 Apr - Hailey's - Denton, Texas 10 Apr - The Earl - Atlanta, Georgia 11 Apr - The Grey Eagle - Asheville, North Carolina 13 Apr - Gravity Lounge - Charlottesville, Virginia 14 Apr - Black Cat (Backstage) - Washington, Washington DC 15 Apr - Johnny Brenda's - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 16 Apr - The Iron Horse Music Hall - Northampton, Massachusetts 17 Apr - The Bowery Ballroom - New York, New York 18 Apr - The Brattle Theater - Cambridge, Massachusetts 20 Apr - The Southgate House Newport, Kentucky 21 Apr - Schuba's - Chicago, Illinois 22 Apr - 7th Street Entry - Minneapolis, Minnesota 23 Apr - High Noon Saloon - Madison, Wisconsin 25 Apr - Queen Elizabeth Theatre - Toronto, Ontario 30 Apr - Vera - Groningen, Groningen 1 May - Vooruit - Gent 2 May - DB's - Utrecht, Utrecht 4 May - Paradiso - Amsterdamn 5 May - Knust - Hamburg, Hamburg 6 May - Pustervik - Gteborg 7 May - John Dee - Oslo 8 May - SVMK @ Strand - Stockholm 10 May - Festsaal Kreuzberg Berlin, Berlin 11 May - UT Connewitz - Leipzig 12 May - Beatpol - Dresden 13 May - Kreuz - Fulda 14 May - Manufaktur - Schorndorf 15 May - Cultureel Podium - Roepaen, Ottersum 16 May - Les Nuits de Botanique - Brussels 18 May - St. Bonaventures - Bristol 19 May - Dulcimer - Manchester 20 May - The Cluny - Newcastle 21 May - Twisted Wheel - Glasgow 22 May - Glee Club - Birmingham 23 May - Borderline - London 24 May - Le Grand Mix - Tourcoing 26 May - L'International - Paris 27 May - CAMJI - Niort 28 May - Espace Tatry - Bordeaux 30 May - Moby Dick - Madrid
