Product Notes

Christmas holds a special magic for Ed. When he was growing up on a Native reserve on the cold Canadian Prairies, his family was poor but rich in creativity and love. Ed remembers watching the frost travel across the windows of their log cabin while his grandfather made stars for the Christmas tree from tin cans. Somehow, his grandmother found the ingredients for mince meat pies and their small home was warm and sweet with the smells of baking coming from the wood stove. As a small child, Ed was bundled in a buffalo robe on a horse drawn sleigh and taken to midnight mass, listening to the bells and the crunching of the snow and watching the stars and northern lights twinkling. Ed carried this Christmas magic into his own home. Every year he and his wife make an elaborate gingerbread house complete with stained glass windows. Our gifted friend Corry Suter came up with a great song about this for Ed. You can tell by listening to this CD that Ed deeply admired Chet Atkins and wore out more than a few of his records over the years. Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and story-teller, Ed Peekeekoot is a skilled and seasoned performer. He has a timeless kind of cool that appeals to audiences of all ages. Ed's performances go from blazing guitar work to foot stomping fiddle and haunting Native flute - all sprinkled with his Cree humor and philosophy. He takes people on a wildly varied musical journey from country folk to a touch of classical and jazz. From the Ahtahkakoop Cree First Nation in Saskatchewan where he grew up in a musical and supportive family, Ed now lives on Vancouver Island. He has been a solo musician for over three decades - cutting his musical teeth in the bars and clubs of Vancouver and now appearing in concerts, festivals, school performances, corporate events, dances, and retreat gatherings across western Canada and into the US. Ed was twice nominated as the BC Country Music Association's "Instrumentalist of the Year" and his CD "in the key of cree" was nominated as "Best Country CD" in the Aboriginal People's Choice Music Awards.
