Connie writes: “I’m always happy to get out in view of the Rockies. I’ve got some shows coming up in October in Alberta…I am bringing my sons with me to play… Paul Campagne is putting the combine in the quonset and heading out on the road with me. I finally have a family band without having to learn the accordion!.”

Connie’s best known song, Wood River, from the 1992 album of the same name, is considered by many to be the quintessential Saskatchewan tune, it was named one of the top Canadian songs by Canadian Geographic Magazine. In 1984 Connie received a Most Promising Female Vocalist Juno nomination for her album Moonlight Grocery, and Lullaby Berceuse took home Best Children’s Album in 1989. She took Best Children’s Album again in 2004 with a book/cd entitled A Duck in New York City. Love is a Truck was nominated for a 2000 Juno in the Folk Roots category. In 2002 she received the Queen’s Golden Jubilee medal, in recognizing her outstanding contribution to the arts. Her original songs and riveting performances evoke the powerful and unique presence of the Canadian prairies. Witty and serious, down-home and metropolitan, her versatility and talent ensure that her fan base expands with every show.
The husband and wife duo of Jeremy Eisenhauer and Sheree Plett Eisenhauer have released The Road We Once Knew. Simple, spare and heartbreaking in its directness, the concepts of distance, time and the wavering arcs of separation and reunion have rarely been as compellingly explored as they are in this powerful debut album. At heart, it is a
meditation on change that explores the dynamics of escaping from the city and moving to the country. Beautifully played, sung and executed, it is a testament to the healing power of music and the value of wisdom gained from experience.
