Great Lake Swimmers
The Waves, The Wake
Say what you will about Great Lake Swimmers, but the Canadian folk outfit can’t be accused of stagnation. For The Waves, The Wake, frontman Tony Dekker bucks folk conventions by recruiting a vast array of contributors to add marimba, flute, pipe organ, harp and other eclectic instruments to broaden the Great Lake Swimmers’ sound. The result is an inspired, richly textured set of songs.
