Spirit of the West: Spiritual Ever After

Spirit of the West
Originally uploaded by raise my voice
Spirit of the West is an enduring band from Vancouver. For over 25 years, Spirit's unique blend of folk, rock, punk, and Celtic music has gained a huge following under that catch-all of musical labels: alternative.

The band's 25th anniversary compilation, Spirituality, was released last year. Spirit of the West also still tours on a regular basis, most recently as the opening act for Great Big Sea.

Spirit of the West also performed this past weekend at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival. Maintaining a high energy level, the band had people dancing in front of the stage and into the beer gardens, especially to such classics as "Political," "Save This House," and "Home For a Rest." ~ Paula E.
