SEAN BURNS / Lost Country
Oct. 27 :: Department Store Records
With Lost Country, Winnipeg's Sean Burns updates the classic honky tonk template with 10 tracks that pay tribute to many of Canada’s forgotten country music heroes, some of whom never became known outside of their home regions. Lost Country is part of Burns’ ongoing work to preserve and promote Canada’s country music legacy, something he did for over five years as host of “Boots & Saddle” on Winnipeg’s CKUW and his podcast The Northern Report, launched in 2021. However, much of Burns’ time is now occupied by his new role as bassist in Corb Lund’s Hurtin’ Albertans, a gig that’s given him additional motivation to expand his own musical pursuits. Having already released several themed albums, Burns’ Lost Country now shines the spotlight on Canada, and from one glimpse of the album cover’s incredible photo of Toronto’s bustling Yonge Street in the 1960s, you know he means business.
