Howdy from the east coast, folks. This is gonna be a short one but a good, nay great, one. The Ghost Bees are from Halifax but they sound like they are from a place far away both geographically and temporally. They are not from around these parts, you might say, but that’s ok, because while they are not what anyone might expect they are truly wonderful. Wondrous even. Hearing them on record and, especially, live, they are mesmerizing. The sing delicate yet powerful songs. They strum and pluck and sing so very very beautifully. Otherworldly harmonies tell tales of fortune telling, pogroms, births, Pol Pot, Goethe, and more and more and more, all in the span of seven songs. Romy and Sari Lightman were kind enough to visit Kingston as part of the Apple Crisp Music Series at the end of April and share their songs with us. I have two for you plus one of their wonderful stories. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They are in the West Coast of the US and Canada and then off through the prairies so check them out if they stop by your town.
