Fiver

Fiver (aka Simone Schmidt) will perform songs and tell stories from Audible Songs From Rockwood, a song cycle based on three years of research into the case files of people incarcerated at the Rockwood Asylum for the Criminally Insane in Upper Canada between 1856 -1881.  Written in the Old Time acoustic tradition, the album was long listed for the Polaris Prize and has received critical acclaim from NPR, CBC, The Walrus and The Bluegrass Situation. Last year Fiver's FOTR performance was thwarted by a burst appendix. Expect a long listen.
