the Wilderness of Manitoba end UK leg of tour on a high note
The Wilderness of Manitoba completed the UK leg of their tour on a
high note tonight with a sold out show in Cambridge. Indie choral
choir, Dowsing For Sound, recently covered the Wilderness of
Manitoba song November at one of their concerts. Thirty members of
the choir attended the Cambridge show and rose from their seats to
accompany the band on an emotional version of the song. All the
shows on the tour have been well attended and well received. At the
WOMAD festival, they performed in front of thousands of people.
Coinciding with the live dates, a special EP, Delaware House, named
after the house in Toronto where they record and where one of the
band still lives, was released for the band’s UK and Dutch fans. The
Line of Best Fit described it as sounding “rather like Jeferson Airplane
playing an orchestral version of 4 Way Street; a mix of beautiful vocal
harmonies, pensive guitar and stunningly produced string swells”.
Folk Radio EP wrote that the EP “foreshadows the new album, Island
of Echoes, with its lush vocal arrangements and use of electric guitars”.
The video for the song Forest City Love from the Delaware House EP
was featured on the front page of the New Music Express website and
and the EP itself was featured on the front page of MySpace UK.
Despite having had their rental van stolen in London on the first day
of the tour, returning to the UK has been a positive experience for the
