Great Lake Swimmers and Kate Maki Spring Tour

The Great Lake Swimmers and Kate Maki are going to kick off a tour in March that will take them through the Atlantic provinces, northern Ontario, the prairies and the west before winding up back in Toronto on April 25.

You can have a listen to the Great Like Swimmers performing live at NXNE on this episode of the CBC Radio 3 sessions it sounds something like this:

As good as the Swimmers are I like Kate Maki better!
"Born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, Kate Maki has a voice as wide and expansive as its moon-like terrain. Her music is “somewhere in the magical realm of Mazzy Star, Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood, and Belle & Sebastian” (San Francisco Chronicle), and "the kind you end up with a crush on and can't wait to play driving down the highway" (Edmonton Sun). When Kate is not on tour, she teaches Special Education, Science, and French to the next generation."
