Northern ramble Concerts presents Jack Pine and Claude Munson - Doors 7:30, Music 8pm - Tickets $20
Jack Pine's namesake is a rising phoenix of the forest – the windswept tree whose seed is sown by fire. Jack hollers and howls like a lone wolf, spitting wry words and tall tales of lost souls and forgotten truths. His lyricism blends powerful imagery with dark humour and biting social commentary while his mandolin plays furious rhythms and sweet melodies alike.
In September 2017, Jack Pine and The Fire released their 2nd full-length album, Left To Our Own Devices on CD, LP, and Pinecone. Written largely in seclusion in a private Northern Ontario island, the eclectic new songs explore all our relationships - with ourselves, with each other, and with the earth.
Ottawa's Claude Munson writes uninhibited impressionist-folk.
Whether drenched in crystalline synths or stripped bare, Munson's songs tackle modern life and love with radical intimacy. His soaring, gritty tenor paints vivid pictures of hard promises and ecstatic joys: atmospheric narratives that unfold, Rorschach-like.
In 2018, Munson will release “The Silence Came After”, his second and most fully realized album to date. Equal parts lush and spare, it marries the naked soul of 70's era Neil Young, with Talk Talk’s spacious expressionism, and Krautrock's motoric rhythms.
