This week on TransCanada Music West, we feature Ryan Boldt in concert at The Mercury Room in Edmonton. Ryan has been touring the country in support of his latest record, Broadside Ballads. The record is a collection of interpretations of traditional folk songs. The album’s title refers to songs printed on inexpensive paper sold for no more than a penny during the sixteenth and early twentieth centuries in towns and villages around Britain. In this week’s set, Ryan is joined by guitarist Clayton Linthicum (Kacy & Clayton) who shares Ryan’s affinity for traditional folk music. When Ryan isn’t recording solo, he’s performing as the front man of Saskatoon folk rock outfit The Deep Dark Woods.
