Mark Zettel. Visionary. Resolute. Magnanimous. None of these words describe him. He was however blessed with a gift for song and lyric unique among even the most highly praised Canadian folk singers of our day.

And in an age where all things are digital, these four stand strong and proud in a wave of acoustic energy that will soon be washing into a town near you.
