Corin Raymond and the Sundowners
Greenbank Folk Society

Corin brought the best of his storytelling talents and the Sundowners, as always, brought their chops. The roll-out of Paper Nickels is still going strong. It'll be heading back out west this summer after a springtime of Southern Ontario outings. You can catch this band almost every Thursday at The Cameron House of Queen St West... 6pm to 8pm.

First set is a showcase of the new record, save for a cover of I'm A Fuckin' Genius and Corin's own piece, 3,000 Miles. Second set has a few more from Paper Nickels but also offers some rarities from Small Time; Blue Mermaid Dress and Wish I Was In Love.

Opening act, Patrick Brealey, who also has a residency at The Cameron (Friday nights at 8 pm) was simply...wait for it...amazing! (Had-to-be-there joke.)
