The last time I saw Blue Rodeo in concert (last winter) the opening acts were Dustin Bentall (son of Barney)’s band and a lovely young woman named Kendel Carson (which made for a terrific night of all-Canadian music *whoot whoot*). So I’m here now to tell you about Kendel Carson.
This woman is brilliant. Not only is she absolutely beautiful to look at, her voice is achingly beautiful to listen to. The song that I’ve listened to over and over again is called “Oh Baby Lie Down” and it will find its place in your heart, head and soul. It’s such a gorgeous song. Kendel singing it will make you weep.
Kendel is touring all over the world right now and the last time I chatted with her (thank you, Facebook) her CD was not yet available in Canada (which you’d think a Canadian would be able to release in Canada but I suppose it depends on your label, etc.)…but I am posting a link to her CD and to a Canadian (Cape Breton!) performance of “Oh Baby…”. Be prepared world, this girl is gonna go places.
