Hamilton-based singer-songwriter Duane Rutter joins us on this week’s new release hour to chat about his wonderful new album of roots rock “Crazy Things” which includes a fantastic cameo from the Band’s Garth Hudson and his wife “Sister” Maud Hudson. We also have a great selection from some of the best new releases of the last few months.
Hamilton-based singer-songwriter Duane Rutter has just released his third recording “Crazy Things”, an album of bluesy country-roots songs which playfully mixes in some occasional psychedelic flourishes. The album features a stellar group of musicians including Andrew Aldridge (electric guitar), Carrie Ashworth (bass), Nick Burson (drums) and Steve ‘Honeyboy’ Wood (pedal steel) and JB Reed (vocals) among others, with cameos from The Band’s Garth Hudson and his wife “Sister” Maud Hudson. We caught up with Duane in Hamilton to chat about the new album. For more information visit duanerutter.com.
