Published Mar 15, 2013White Ash Falls and Portage and Main are touring Canada together this month, so it's fitting that the two folksy BC acts have teamed up for a video for the song "Downtown."
This black and white clip finds White Ash Falls main man Andy Bishop performing acoustically in the studio alongside Portage and Main vocalists John Sponarski and Harold Donnelly. The three trade off twangy verses and harmonize over a melancholic arrangement consisting of layered strumming and resonant piano chords.
Check out the video for yourself at the bottom of the page.
