Gordie Tentrees and Roger Marin BOTH have had significant stints with Canadian roots music legend Fred Eaglesmith. They’re both playing Phog Lounge THIS SATURDAY NIGHT.
From Gordie’s website (about his new album):
“North Country Heart is twelve swampy country blues songs layered with the storied delivery of a Texas word slinger. From the north. Songs smothered in traditional Yukon roots music featuring a unique take on stories that live in the Canadian north. Produced by Juno Award-winning Bob Hamilton (Kim Barlow, Sarah MacDougall, Kim Beggs) and featuring Ken Hermanson (banjo, lapsteel, guitar), Bob Hamilton (upright bass, pedal steel), Patrick Hamilton (drums) Annie Avery (piano, organ) and Sarah Macdougall (vocals), the Canadian road warrior’s fifth full length album is his boldest effort yet.”
And now a little bit about Roger Marin:
“When it comes to learning how to make a name for yourself as an independent music artist, Roger Marin has been a life long student. Living and breathing music for most of his life, as a teen playing guitar alongside his father – a roaming country music artist, then several years as pedal steel and lead guitar with Fred Eaglesmith and the Flying Squirrels. More recently on his own and ramping up to record, promote and release his third album, the lessons learned have paid off in many ways for the Thorold guitarist and singer-songwriter.”
