Cathy Porter is reuniting with her old pals in Blueberry Grunt for St. Patrick's Day at the McInnes Room at Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, on Friday, March 17th. It's sure to be a rip-roarin' good time with fearless leader, Dave Roberts, who knows how to make EVERY day a par-tay!
Cathy recently joined Dave Carroll of United Breaks Guitars to record accordion and a virtual plethora of percussion on two new songs, working alongside Chris Ianetti (guitar), Bruce Dixon (bass), Ross Billard (keys), and Scott Ferguson (drums).
Rose Vaughan and Cathy Porter are now done mixing and mastering their new recording, Gardener of the Moon, with Christopher Mitchell of Halifax Motion Picture Sound & Music, who's found the warm, smooth finishing touches that help provide their signature sound. The new collection includes a fresh updated version of Stone and Sand, originally recorded by the Rose Vaughan Trio (1993), now featuring special guest vocalists: Mary Jane Lamond, Rose Cousins, Dave Gunning, and Joel Plaskett along with his father, Bill Plaskett.
Gardener of the Moon is slated for release in June, 2017.
