Good news is he's stopping in Halifax March 6 at Casino Nova Scotia (8pm). VIP ticket info here. Tickets on sale November 28. $50/$60 premium plus HST and service charges.

Take It Home is said to have an American roots music feel, but not too American. From today's release: "Like a big freight train winding its way north then west in the early mist of a Canadian summer morning, Take It Home has a power to it that is as compelling as it is haunting." Wait, the train is haunting? G-g-g-ghost train?
There's only one thing that'll calm my fears about this totally real and totally haunted train—HIT IT!
