Many Canadian music fans know Joel Plaskett: Multiple JUNO Award winning songwriter; multiple times on the Polaris Music Prize Short List; sold out concert halls from one side of the country to the other. In 2017 he’ll be sharing the spotlight with his earliest musical influence–his father, Bill.
Solidarity is their first full-length musical collaboration. The album is a powerful collection of original and traditional songs. Each is varied and personal, yet expressive of interconnecting themes. Folk-based political songs sit side by side with contemplative love songs, a touch of rockabilly country blues, and more fully arranged folk-rock. We can hardly wait to welcome Joel and Bill to the Stanfest stage!
