Welcome to Sing In My Meadow day! The new album is available today through our site and at a selective few independent record stores throughout North America (it will be available in the UK/Europe next week). It will also be available digitally, over the coming weeks, at all of the big internet digital download stores.
If you are only interested in the digital version you can buy it here, for the next week, for just $2.99. Before purchasing it make sure that you check out the other bundles available. The album is available on CD and on vinyl. Also available is a Bonus EP of live tracks recorded on the 2006 Paths Taken tour and a very limited edition Sing In My Meadow t-shirt.
If you haven’t been here in a while please check out the Clubhouse Subscription. For a very modest price you can download all four volumes of the Nomad Series as well as all of the downloadable music on our site (which includes hundreds of recordings not available elsewhere) and we will send you the Nomad Series book which we will be releasing in early 2012 after the release of Volume 4. If you are already a Clubhouse member you can get the new album now, inside the Clubhouse (and we thank you, once again, for your generous patronage).
Or you can just hang around and listen to it for free…..pass the word, “Happy Sing In My Meadow Day!!”.

To find out more about the prizes and to get the free download click the “download and contest” button on the right of the page or just click here. Also, make sure that you check back on October 18th as we will be selling the new album real cheap for the first few days.

In case you didn’t know, we will be having a Latent Recordings night at Hugh’s Room, in Toronto, on October 29th. On the bill will be Cootes Leland, Ivy Mairi and Finlayson/Maize (of Skydiggers fame) as well as us. Everyone will perform a short acoustic set followed by Cowboy Junkies. We will be performing with the full band and will play between 45 – 60 minutes. We are going to road test a lot of new songs off of the first three volumes of the Nomad Series and we might even throw in something from Volume 4.
Hugh’s Room is an excellent listening room with good food, excellent beer and a tiered listening area so there are no bad seats in the house. It’s also a tiny space, so if you live in the area or are planning a trip to our fair city, come on down. It should be a fun night. Get your tickets here.
