New Country Rehab and Lynne Hanson give new life to country tunes

Some people say country music is old... stodgy... too twangy. But the musicians you'll meet this week on Bandwidth are bringing country back -- and making it cool (I promise!)

First up, you'll hear from New Country Rehab out of Toronto -- which does what their name suggests -- they rework old, old country songs with new music... and the result, as you'll hear, is awesome.

You'll also hear from Ottawa singer-songwriter Lynne Hanson -- she describes her sound as "back porch music with just a little bit of Texas red dirt." If you want to hear even more from the lovely and talented Lynne, she's also on CBC Television Ottawa tonight at 7 on the series Absolutely Ottawa.


- New Country Rehab plays Hillside Festival this weekend in Guelph, Ont.

- Dawn & Marra play at the Festival of Friends in Ancaster from August 10th to 12th -- more info on their website

- Kalle Mattson plays Sault Ste Marie on August 9th at Loplops -- more info on Facebook

- the Electric Environment plays OTHERfolk in Owen Sound on August 16th

And I can't forget the new video for Kalle Mattson's Water Falls -- check it out below! You should also check out their video for Thick as Thieves right here.

Have an awesome weekend, and I'll catch you next Saturday!
