Canadian Sister band Searson releases New Album ‘Stars Above the Farm’
Canadian sister band Searson have released their eighth studio album this June 2015. Colleen and Erin Searson, along with their band, will be on tour in support of their new album ‘Stars Above the Farm’. This Celtic Roots album contains a mix of original vocal and instrumentals as well as traditional instrumental tunes. ‘Stars Above the Farm’ is named after the sisters parents’ farm in the Ottawa Valley, Ontario where the girls grew up. The concept for this album has been rooted around stories and tunes about the Ottawa Valley and the history of the Searson family.
Searson collaborated with the talented fiddler April Verch who cowrote a beautiful fiddle number with Colleen called Cuddy’s Waltz. Colleen also teamed up with French Canadian fiddler Pascal Gemme of Genticorum and arranged a toe-tapping set of Quebecois tunes. Long time friend and musician Brent Hoad of the Elders performs a lively accordion track on this set of French Canadian tunes. Along with the band’s original fiddle sets on this album, listeners will hear a wide variety of Canadian and Irish style of fiddling on ‘Stars Above the Farm’.
The song 1847 is a story centered around the Searson family immigrating from County Tipperary, Ireland to Hyndford, Ontario and building a life there. Colleen & Erin Searson are the sixth generation to be raised on the original family farm in Hyndford.
Upbeat song ‘Early Morning Funeral’ is a story about a bachelor party in the town of Eganville. The boys break into the local funeral home, borrow a coffin and take the bachelor for a ride across the bridge!
Searson has toured across Canada, the United States, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain and hosted three bus tours around Ireland while performing their original music.
The Searson live show includes high energy fiddling, step dancing, singing and tenor guitar and is complimented by talented Canadian musicians Danno O’Shea on drums, percussion and mandolin and Fraser Gauthier on bass, acoustic guitar and tenor guitar.
Searson will be performing at The Dublin Pub on June 19 at 9 p.m. and will be selling their new album ‘Stars Above the Farm’ at their live shows. The Dublin Pub is located at 300 Wayne Avenue, please call1.937.224.7822 for more information.
