Highway 3 Roots Revue returns at The Slice

My brudda Leeroy Stagger returns with Dave McCann and John Wort Hannam for their fifth annual Highway 3 tour, December 9th at The Slice:

Three Alberta songwriters come together each winter to tour as Highway 3. They leave their bands at home and tour their songs in the stripped down, bare bones style in which they were written. This is a chance to catch these artists in an intimate setting where they present their music in the spirit in which it was written, guitar, and voice. 
Check out their Facebook event page.

They’ve since taken down the post, but being crafty I saved a MP3 of the interview! For your listening enjoyment:   Jonathan RuzekI’m Jonathan Ruzek, a creative …
