100 Mile House: Wait With Me

Wait With Me
100 Mile House
100 Mile House consist of husband and wife duo Peter Stone and Denise MacKay, plus multi-instrumentalist Scott Zubot (violin, viola, mandolin) and Tom Murray on bass. They are an award-winning Canadian folk group who are steadily attracting a wider following around the world.

Wait With Me is their third full-length album.

Track List

Last Call
Wait With Me
Show Me A Sign
Left Unattended
My Love
Just Because
We Built This Road
Breakfast TV
The First Time
Running Back To You

Peter and Denise share the vocal duties, with Peter often taking the lead and Denise joining in with the harmonies, albeit with the occasional role-reversal (on My Love, for example).

There's a good range of styles and tempo over the course of the 13 tracks, with two of them - Left Unattended and Arrival - being short instrumental snippets.

The stand-out tracks are the uptempo numbers, with Last Call and Rosalita being the pick of the bunch.

The vocals offer a very pure sound and the range of instruments impressive. In addition to those listed above, we encounter guitars, piano, banjo, drums and cello, all of which help to fill out the sound, creating a musical glow to match the album cover.

Further details and tour dates can be found over at the 100 Mile House website.
