Folk standards and searching tributes to country heroes. Ramshackle family bands and haunting elementary school ensembles. Landlocked surf and off-kilter rural rock. And a devastating take on the requisite Joni song. Privately pressed and filtered through a prairie lens, it’s another trip to Saskatchewan. All covers edition.
