The Easy Straight

Vocalist/guitarist George Meanwell has a fascinating musical history. He was in '70s folk trio Short Turn, then toured the world as a multi-instrumentalist in the acclaimed Quartetto Gelato. He merges folk and chamber music seamlessly on this enchanting disc. Ace players including violinist Anna Atkinson and guitarist Eric St-Laurent add atmosphere to his well-crafted vocal and instrumental compositions. The album comes with a DVD, both recorded (and filmed) in single takes over two evenings at Stratford venue Factory 163. Meanwell launches the disc with performances at Hugh's Room in Toronto (April 15) and Factory 163 (April 21).
