Speaking of expat Keswickians, there’s another one ready to make a splash in Toronto this weekend.
Luke Michielsen’s music is full of pastoral imagery, the lyrics subtle and evocative, the depth of his message hidden in the plain sight. I’ve put a streaming link to his newest EP, Meddle In The Natural Order, below. Check it out.
His down-to-earth folk sensibility is at odds with the scope of his world; it’s that tension, between the intricacies he sees in the natural and the simple unending openness of that same vision, that keeps his music interesting.
Luke Michielsen plays 5/12/12 at the Central, downtown Toronto, with The Connors Brothers and The Human Orchestra. Don’t miss it.
