Published Aug 22, 2013Peterborough, ON folk musician Dylan Ireland has been recording and performing with a roster of backing musicians under the name Express & Company. Debut album Ontario was released in March, and the effort furthered the group's exploration of "traditional Canadian roots rock."
Ireland and fiddler Melissa Payne stopped by our backyard to perform "Ontario," the title track from the band's debut record, released in March. Featuring two-part harmonies and no shortage of fiddle solos, this stripped-down rendition of the song captures the spirit and verve of its namesake province.
Watch the performance below. Ireland will be performing with Joel Plaskett at the Peterborough Folk Festival on August 23rd, and with the full band on the 24th.
