Aspen, of Thistledowne, has a brand new CD called Narrow Sky, and it's available at Otter Books in Nelson. Soon you can buy it online at her website, too.

Aspen has a lovely voice and wrote most of the songs on the CD. Also appearing are her Thistledowne cohorts, Jessa Koerber, who lends her voice singing backup on three of the tracks, and Jesse Lee, who plays guitar, bass, or sings backup on pretty much all of it.

Remember how I told you they wowed the crowd at Our Way Home with their rendition of "Jerusalem"? You can hear it on Aspen's site on the audio page. It's number 9.

Aspen's Trio (Jessa Koerber and Kasia Juno) is touring the Kootenays this summer thanks to a Columbia Basin Trust grant. Don't miss her if you get a chance.

Jesse Lee had to decline touring this summer as he has to make a living, being a young father and all, but Thistledowne will reunite on Wednesday, August 9 in Castlegar, 6:30 PM at the Kinnaird Park.
