Sherman Downey Takes the New Songs for a Workout


Music fans first came to know him as the guy with the dreadlocks from the Codroy Valley.

Now he's one of the hottest young voices in Newfoundland and Labrador music.

This Saturday's show Oct 6 features Sherman Downey and his band the Silver Lining, recorded live in concert.

It's been two years since a highly-acclaimed debut CD called Honey for Bees put Sherman and his band on the local music map.

They're targeting this fall for the release of the all-important second album.

Many of the songs destined for that album were heard during the band's recent tour of the province, and they drew a tremendous response from a growing community of fans.

Those tunes are featured on this week's show, recorded at the St. John's Arts and Culture Centre.
