After releasing their new album on Maple Music, The Shack Recordings (blues,country,rock,folk), Wilson and Lanois are ready to hit the road. Tom Wilson is a three-time Juno Award winner and has toured the world with his band Junkhouse, and presently the Canadian Roots Supergroup, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Bob Lanois is an interpretive artist both visually and musically. With his brother Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, Bob hosted the birth of what the world would come to know as ambient music. They will be playing songs from their new CD as well as some Junkhouse and Blackie tunes.

When word started going around a couple of years ago that Bob Lanois — the enigmatic older brother of Daniel, and co-founder of their first studio ventures — was getting back into recording at his isolated home base outside of Hamilton, many local musicians jumped at the chance to work with a true innovator. Longtime Lanois family friend Wilson seemed a natural choice for a significant collaboration, as lately he has been hitting another peak in his songwriting career with Blackie & the Rodeo Kings. Wilson has always sounded best in the simplest settings, and The Shack Recordings certainly provides one. The intimacy that Lanois captures is actually quite striking; the feeling of the room is palpable, and Wilson rises to the occasion with perhaps the most unaffected performances he’s ever done. The songs are among his best too, with “Fennell Square” and “Let Your Old Star In” being only two of the standouts. For his part, Lanois shows remarkable restraint in colouring the songs with only his harmonica, back-up vocals and the occasional ambient texture. The Shack Recordings is a thoroughly satisfying collection, and I can hardly wait for the next instalment.
