Here's a Commonwealth collaboration of three of the brightest talents in roots music. Saskatchewan folk duo Kacy & Clayton -- cousins Kacy Anderson and Clayton Linthicum -- have struck up both a musical and personal friendship with New Zealand troubadour Marlon Williams. Together, the trio grabbed some time together a couple years ago in Saskatoon to lay down Plastic Bouquet. The album is built around the contrasting yet complementary voices of Anderson and Williams.
Once in a while you hear a song and you know it's going to be a classic. Well, a personal classic anyway. That's how it was when I heard 'The Arahura' by Kacy & Clayton, the Canadian folk/roots duo from Saskatchewan. Except that it isn't a Kacy & Clayton song, it was written, performed and recorded by New Zealand singer-songwriter Marlon Williams back in 2016.
