Didn’t make it to this show, but luckily, CBC Radio did!
Rootstock is an annual festival put on by the Jackson-Triggs winery in Niagara-On-The-Lake. Only two years into its legacy, and it’s already played host to Jim Cuddy, Kathleen Edwards, Tom Cochrane, and (as featured here), Steven Page, Hawksley Workman, Joel Plaskett and Sarah Sleen.
The sound quality, as always for CBC, is astounding. The performances are a bit more of a mixed bag, but more than justify a download from fans of the performers. Hawksley Workman’s Autumn’s Here is especially loose and hilarious, featuring an impromptu harmonica solo by (what I can only assume is) an audience member.
Give this recording a shot, and for more selections from the concert, make sure you check out CBC.ca’s Canada Live website for streaming mp3s.
