Categories: , , , ,


Amazingly, after forty years, Stony Plain Records is still where it was founded, here in Edmonton, Canada, and still releasing new music. Music which president and owner Holger Petersen calls roots music: contemporary music with roots in the past that stands on its own, and which influences almost all the pop music you hear around you. This three CD set celebrates with some of the label’s favourite tracks, plus one full CD of rarities and previously unreleased music by artists like Eric Bibb, Maria Muldaur, Duke Robillard and Sam Chatmon. Stony Plain was named “2014 Record Label of the Year” by the Blues Foundation in Memphis. Add to that 6 Grammy nominations, 11 Juno Awards and dozens of Blues Awards and Maple Blues Awards.
