Peirson Ross will be back on stage at Nature’s Harmony Ecolodge as part of his ‘Wild One’s Canoe Tour’. The intimate show will be held on Saturday, June 20, 2
015. Limited tickets available. Tickets – $25 per person. Camping – $12 per person. Other accommodation options also available.
Songwriter and artist Peirson Ross is bringing music from his new album, Wild One’s, to locales across Ontario and Quebec by canoe. Join
ed by adventurer and filmmaker Frank Wolf, Peirson will embark on a wholly unique five-week, 900-kilometre album release tour from Georgian Bay to Montreal in which he paddles by day and performs by night.
The tour will celebrate the release of Peirson’s latest album Wild Ones and pay homage to the very essence of Canada – the wilderness. Like modern day Voyageurs
, Peirson and Frank will travel the same water veins as the First Nations did when they populated the lands 10,000 years ago.
Peirson refers to the Wild Ones as a homesick project that prompted him to reconnect with his roots. Written in his New York apartment. Peirson plays each of the 20+ instruments himself and also designed and created the beautiful artwork. Each tile on the cover holds a paper-cut image of one of sixteen endangered species of Canada, and along with the songs, he intends for them to “represent the ten provinces, three territories and three oceans that reside within these fragile habitats.” Peirson’s aim was to marry “art, music, and nature in an album dedicated to wildlife and to those living the wild life.”
