Courage and Patience and Grit

Great Big Sea

Year: 2008

Runtime: 01:00:00

Since they emerged in the early 90s, Newfoundland's own Great Big Sea have gradually consolidated a reputation as one of the greatest neo-Celt bands, from anywhere in the Six Nations or, as in this case, beyond. Drawing upon their homeland's strong Irish and Scottish ancestry and centuries-old seafaring heritage, they have fashioned a roistering, danceable sound and a live presence not unlike a bar-band but operating on a massive scale. But for all their good-time, party-hearty extroversion, they also demonstrate a rare affinity for love songs and more introspective types of material. Recorded in spectacular sound before adoring audiences, this "kitchen party," as one band member described it, is at once intimate and grand, folkloric and modern, acoustic and electric. Traditional instruments like fiddle, tin whistle, accordion are fused seamlessly with electric guitars and trap drums, plus tight and charismatic lead and harmony vocals, creating a spiraling energy that takes the crowd by storm and hurtles from living room speakers like a conquering wave.

  • Band in Seattle: Live debut - Concert 112 B

    Spoonshine

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 36 min

    Hailing from Anacortes and Seattle Washington, Spoonshine features the songwriting collaboration between Jacob Navarro (mandolin, guitar, vocals) and William Cook (upright bass, guitar, vocals), with support from Kelly Van Camp (drums). Spoonshine’s songs often reflect on life between the farm, the sea, and the mountains that surround their Northwest home. For example, the song, “Song of the Sockeye,” is shaped from a poem found in an abandoned fishing cannery in Northern British Columbia, written by a gill-netter in 1940. It tells the tale of hard working fishermen and a dwindling run of once plentiful salmon. With impassioned harmonies, powerful rhythms, and virtuosic guitar and mandolin, Spoonshine brings what fans have already discovered at their “dance-your-ass-off” live shows along with their finely produced collection of well-crafted songs.

    The Frames

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 28 min

    Conor Masterson's film In the Deep Shade is not a definitive career-spanning documentary of The Frames. Nor is it a fly-on-the-wall expose or an us-against-the-world hero saga. It is, simply put, a stark portrait of an extraordinary band, filmed during their 20th anniversary tour. In the Deep Shade examines the ever-evolving relationship between five musicians who've known each other for many years. That's the story, and in its understated way, it's an uncommon one.

    Jethro Tull is one of the most successful British acts of all time with a career reaching from the late sixties to the present day. In 2003 they made their first (and so far only) visit to the Montreux Festival. Split into a semi-acoustic first half and a full on electric second half, the concert was a triumph combining newer songs such as “Dot Com”, “Pavane” and “Budapest” with classic favorites. As ever Ian Anderson leads from the front with his instantly recognizable voice and inimitable style of one-legged flute playing.
