The Band’s Still Playing

This new CD contains all 22 of the musical numbers from the hit production. This recording was made during last summer’s run of Searching For Abegweit, and features Gallant on guitar, harmonica, and bodhran, nephews Jeremy Gallant on keyboards and percussion and Jonathan Gallant on backing vocals, drums, percussion, and mandolin. Rounding out the band is Lennie’s longtime violinist Sean Kemp, and Patricia Richard on bodhran, mandolin, banjo, vocals, and beautifully interpreting Lennie’s francophone songs. Mi’kmaq chanter Hubert Francis, and The Lone Cry Drummers also make guest appearances.  The album was produced by Lennie Gallant, recorded by Phillip MacLellan, and mixed by Graeme Campbell. Album graphic design is by Ashley Paynter.
