Dave McCann and the Firehearts end CD release party with popular favourites

E-mail Print PDF

Dave McCann and the Firehearts had a good sized crowd for the CD release party for their latest release “ Circle of Light.”

 Then ended with some of their best alt country material including  “Standing in the River,” and Grain Car.”
 For their encore, they asked Leeroy Stagger, who produced and recorded the CD in his Rebeltone Studios to sing a mostly a cappella version of  the new song “ Shine My Light.”Leeroy Stagger singing with Dave McCann and the Firehearts. Photo by Richard Amery


 They had also rejigged the band’s line up, adding six string bassist Brian Sovereign to drummer Tim Williams and guitarists Dave Bauer and Pete Loughlin who also added excellent background vocals giving the band a Todd Snider meets Fred Eaglesmith type of alt country sound.
