I came to the realization several years ago that the Scandinavian countries have a limitless bounty of first-rate pop artists. I’ve posited a similar theory about Canada, our trusty neighbors to the north, and that nation’s (seemingly) endless supply of terrific roots musicians. You can add Winnipeg-based trio Red Moon Road to the long of talented Canucks.

Red Moon Road CDComprised of multi-instrumentalists Sheena Rattai, Daniel Jordan and Daniel Peloquin-Hopfner, Red Moon Road impress at every turn on latest full-length “Sorrows and Glories.” They mix elements of folk, roots, country and jazz to create a sound all their own and the 12-track, 45-minute platter is an absolute delight.

Red Moon Road set the tone with the opening tandem of “Beauty in These Broken Bones” — a tune written while Rattai recovered from broken leg — and “Crashing Down.” The trio further scores with “I’ll Bend But I Won’t Break,” “Words of the Walls,” “Breathing Slow,” “Fables” and “Seasons.” If you’ve yet to discover this talented band, it’s time to remedy that.
