Happy Birthday, Keelan Purchase! ‘t’is great pleasure to celebrate the Guelph, Ontario-born and Newfoundland-seasoned multi-instrumentalist marvel of Allison Crowe and Band. Sláinte!
Passionate thespian as well as musician, (with wardrobe also second-to-none), we really need hear all the fantastic music on the group’s just-released albums – “Pillars” (@ https://allisoncrowe.bandcamp.com/album/pillars) + ‘Six More Songs” (@ https://allisoncrowe.bandcamp.com/album/six-more-songs) – to appreciate Keelan’s inspired contribution on accordion, guitar, harmonica, vocals and more.
For this birthday blast, here’s “Merry Velvet Linkers” – a trio of tunes on which Keelan’s accordion is front-and-centre (in full – Black Velvet Waltz / Linkers’ Lament / The Merry Blacksmith).
