The Heartstrings — http://www.myspace.com/heartstringscanada

5 piece super-alt-country-roots group, Heartstrings consist of some of Saskatoon's greatest bands, including members of The Cracker Cats, The Deep Dark Woods, and Old Joe and The Truth Hurts. Featuring guitar, upright bass, banjo, pedal steel, percussion, and vocals with beautiful male and female harmonies. Collectively, they have played hundreds of shows and festivals across Canada and Europe. The Heartstrings have been rehearsing and performing a new collection of songs over the past year. Their second album, In A Land Far Away That Is Fair, will be released in August, 2009. The album will be a great landscape of rolling harmonies, and powerful lyrics combined with intertwined melodies.  There are several messages within the songs.  Some about life on the prairies and others about the environmental and other issues our world is now facing. The album will feature 4 songs by Eliza Doyle, 5 songs by Melissa Nygren, and a cover of Red River Dave McEnery’s 1939 Amelia Earhart’s Last Flight, which is very fitting with the flying theme.  We decided to call the album ‘In a Land Far Away That is Fair’ because it is one of the lines in Amelia Earhart’s Last Flight.  Since it’s release on Sept. 6, 2007, the Heartstrings first full-length album has gained much deserved popularity. This collection of upbeat country tunes and dramatic eerie ballads is a colourful display of Melissa Nygren’s original creations. “These heart-warming, nostalgic, and organic gems will take you forward and back in time.” This album is a must have in any roots lover's collection. The Heartstrings self-titled album is now available for purchase at The Vinyl Diner (Saskatoon), and at shows. Look for their new release in August, 2009.
