Hello friends! Matt and Travis Ellis from Canadian, Celtic folk band, Villages are my guests for episode 1238! Their new album, Dark Island, a euphoric and reverent love letter to their native Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. Produced by Juno winning composer, Joshua Van Tassel, Dark Island results in a type of Celtic music that respects its heritage while taking sonic chances. The album drops on February 17th wherever you stream or download music. Go to thebandvillages.com for music, show dates and more. We have a great conversation about the magic of Cape Breton and growing up there, our love of Belle & Sebastian, Teenage Fanclub and others, their songwriting, touring in Canada, making Dark Island and much more. I had a great time getting to know Matt and Travis. I'm sure you will too. Let's get Down!
