Winnipeg 2015 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Winnipeg Folk Fest, Big Bluestem Stage, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, July 11, 2015. Very good audio (ripped from YouTube webcast).

English troubadour Robyn Hitchcock join Canada’s premier roots-rock band The Sadies and other special guests to perform The Band’s Stage Fright album, in honour of the anniversary of its 1970 release. -

In September 2015, at the Drake Underground in Toronto, Hitchcock and The Sadies covered The Byrds’ Sweetheart of the Rodeo in full.

In the Band’s discography, Stage Fright isn’t quite up there with Music from Big Pink, but it’s nevertheless an iconic album from one of Canada’s most celebrated outfits… Hitchcock and The Sadies tear through the rootsy rock ‘n’ roll tunes, which are filled with boogie guitar and tinkling honky-tonk keys. He also intersperses the songs with charming banter.

  5. This is fantastic! I caught the Toronto “Sweethearts” show at the Drake and Robyn and the Sadies did a number of these songs that night, too. So glad my friend Don turned me on to this page. Kudos.
