It was one month ago today that I caught up to the always busy five fellas - better known as SPRAG SESSION (formerly known as The Colin Grant band).
Cape Breton based - it was a treat to run into them during the Festival of Small Halls on Prince Edward Island, and how kind they were to stop for a chat with me so close to show time. Now, normally I would have done such an interview backstage but.... this was a SMALL HALL and there was no backstage.
So amidst the sold out crowd for the "Boys' Night Out" event we assembled for a quick catch-up and between Jason Roach, Darren MacMullen, Colin Grant, Merlin Clarke and Donnie Calabrese we talked about everything from their affinity for traveling together to how they feel before a performance... I think we even started a charity at some point.
It was brief but beautiful and then it was on with the show - that night in PEI - and then on to many other stages throughout Canada, the US and beyond. Next month they'll find themselves in France for Festival Interceltique de Lorient - c'est magnifique!
Be sure to catch them when they play near you - they're amazing!!! SABS
