    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

    band.
