EONS - Runaway

EONS - White Feather Roses

Full review to follow. Ending a short tour that took them to Sackville's SappyFest and back, this vanload of pals celebrated their homecoming with a casual evening in Dufferin Grove Park. There were shades of Matt Cully's Poor Pilgrim island shows here, with the modest, portable PA lifting the voices above the sounds of the city creeping in at the edges and curious passers-by occasionally pausing to listen in.

Matt Cully also had several new songs to share with the crowd. Their continued mix of classic folk forms and contemporary concerns felt perfect in this environment — lying back on the grass, looking at a star winking through the shifting branches of a tree, with mumurations of cars and bikes and pedestrians in the background.
