Kingston’s Swamp Ward Orchestra rips through three new tracks — download them below! The group is heading to the Calgary Folk Fest and other far-flung shows in the summer of 2011. Alison Gowan is on hurdy gurdy and upright bass, Jan Le Clair plays accordion and cello, Laura Murray plays cello and banjo, and everyone sings, with Alison taking lead vocals on Ta P’tite Flamme, a song by Amélie-les-crayons. La Sansonette is a Schottische by Dominique Forges, and Slippery Slope is an original by Laura Murray. Pete Bowers joins the trio on percussion. Recorded and mixed by Matt Rogalsky.
