In the summer of 2015, I participated in "Music From The Americas", a series of live concerts put on by CIUT Radio in Toronto. I performed a variety of songs dealing (mostly) with 'folk heroes' and 'villians' of the Americas. Andrew Galloway attended that concert and thought we should try making a CD like that? I'd previously recorded some of the songs I performed at that show, so I didn't re-do them on here - but I've added some that I did not play at the CIUT show.

This CD is more stripped-down than my previous discs. I still perform regularly with my musical friends, but, I've had many requests for some more solo recordings... I did, however, smuggle some of my musician friends onto this CD.
