Twilight Hotel
Highway Prayer
Brandy Zdan and Dave Quanbury are Winnipeg-based Twilight Hotel, embodying the spirit of prairie folk festivals. Colin Linden produces and adds guitar, on keyboards is the late Richard Bell in the final session of his 45-year career. Linden and Bell contribute a meandering jam that sweetly wraps up the dozen Hotel originals. The songs show quite a range, from a bluesy romp on “Viva la Vinyl” to the murder ballad “Lowalta Morningside.” The couple split vocals, harmonizing on the choruses with Zdan’s accordion serving as signature. Brilliant in spots and smooth through the valleys, Highway Prayer should be answered with some nationwide love.
