Winnipeg’s long time traveller of the Hillbilly Highway, Scott Nolan, found himself in Silverhill one dark evening a short time ago, while touring with the legendary Mary Gauthier. They were performing at the Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm, a concert series in the tradition of Levon Helm’s Midnight Rambles.He’s talking songwriting, generally. But the story in particular relates to the title track of the new, as yet unreleased record. The song is a beautiful ode to the community, with many locals name checked throughout the little five minute ditty. The album itself is, appropriately, titled Silverhill.
