Despite the choice of name, folk-rockers Portage & Main hail from Vancouver, not Winnipeg. Either city would be happy to claim them as their own, given the strength of this very impressive second album. Pedal steel and vocal harmonies are key ingredients to their rustic sound, one that will appeal to fans of Blue Rodeo or early Wilco. The band are heading out on a cross-country tour soon. For dates,visit the band website. A band and album well worth finding time for.
