Album Notes
Imagine Gordon Lightfoot’s “Canadain Railroad Trilogy” then expand your view to take in all of Canada’s vast and beautiful landscapes- from the towering peaks of the Rockies, over the expansive prairies to the rugged shores of Lake Superior; from the rainforests of the west to the fishing villages on the Atlantic shore… Woodland Telegraph would like to take you into the heart of these places on their Canadian Landscape Trilogy, three distinct albums capturing the feeling, history and culture of the landscapes that mark Canada’s national identity and imagination. Northern Folklore is proud to present the second instalment in this trilogy: From the Fields….

Join Woodland Telegraph on a ten-song journey into the prairies and farmland on From the Fields, an album of anthemic Canadian roots music …

Written and recorded in Southern Alberta, songwriter Matthew Lovegrove wanted to capture the atmosphere and feeling of the prairies while exploring the stories of the people who call it home. Crafting songs from personal anecdotes, newspaper clippings and historical books, the lyrics tell of the hardship and beauty of the plains, backed by a musical landscape rich in vocal harmony and diverse instrumentation. You will hear atmospheric folk songs and stomping bluegrass alongside orchestral washes and fierce electric guitar. In Little Seed Rising we meet Saskatchewan farmers sued by a multi-national corporation, their message of hope resounding with choral vocals and driving train-track banjos. In the lush instrumentation of Niagara Escarpment, Ontario’s farmland winter nights are described with a dream-like ambience. From the harsh realities of prairie living to the awe of watching a harvest moon rising over the horizon, these songs are held together by a love of place and a passion to map out the landscape of our country…
