Whitehorse Cover Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot on 'The Road to Massey Hall' Live EP
According to a press release, this covers EP is "a celebration of the venue's history and a tribute to those legends that have made the iconic stage their own." The songs are chosen in order to highlight "those who have come to be identified with Canada's premiere venue through memorable performances and live recordings." These artists include Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, Blue Rodeo and Ron Sexsmith.
The six songs that make up The Road to Massey Hall will be issued online as a series of live videos. The first of these songs to hit the web is a version of the traditional tune "Un Canadien Errant." Watch Whitehorse perform that song at the bottom of this page.
