See Dave McCann and the Firehearts to hear Dave McCann’s latest release “Dixiebluebird”…

Road ghosts, fallen shows and the blur of years built by song, sweat and stage noise. Americana -edged rock and roll tangled with the continuous trail of broken strings, headlights and a hell of a lot of laughter. You’d be looking at the guiding force behind Dave McCann and the Ten Toed Frogs and their third release Shoot the Horse.

Recorded live off the stage in Edmonton Alberta, at the long surrendered Sidetrack Cafe - one of Canada’s loved and long gone music venues. It’s a night of finality and a transitional line between recorded material and live performance. You can almost feel the anticipation of the beer soaked Canadian tavern crowd. It’s the kinda feel Gram Parsons tried to emulate for his “Medley Live from Northern Quebec” on 1974’s Grievous Angel. “I’ve always felt restrained in a studio, unable to tap into the natural unharnessed fury of live performance. Recording live - it’s like the crowd becomes the producer, you feed off each other. The better the crowd is the better the show, so just knowing this was our last night in the place we had nothing left to lose, you could feel that shadow, the fire of execution, the hangman’s noose, the wrecking ball, it was the last train, and that was instrumental to us removing any limitations.”
