Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity - Leighton Artist Studios Residency 

We've just completed a two week residency at the wonderful Banff Centre as part of their Leighton Artist Studios Program https://www.banffcentre.ca/painter-house. It was the first time the three of us had written together and we are excited about this new group of songs.  

Kim had a terrific idea - writing songs based around a theme. We mulled it over some and decided to write songs inspired by the photos of Dorothea Lange. Dorothea is known for her wonderful photographs of the folks who left their wind and dust ravaged farms in the area known as No Man's Land (the Oklahoma Panhandle) in the 1930's. The photos we based the songs around include "Migrant Mother", "Tractored Out", "First Car", a story about a two year old little girl Rena Marie who died from "dust pneumonia", and another of Dorothea's photos "On the Road".  

We hope to have these songs recorded within the coming months with a visual presentation to accompany the music as well.  

Our residency was highly successful and we are honoured to have had this opportunity. Have a listen to the demo recordings we made of this project on the /banff-project page. 

Stay tuned!
