Released on June 13, Vancouver-based country music band, The Washboard Union along with newcomer Meghan Patrick from Bowmanville, Ontario, took an Eagles classic and made it their own. Back in January, after hearing of the passing of Glenn Frey, The Washboard Union wanted to pay tribute to Frey and to Steve Young (who originally wrote and recorded this song back in 1969). They brought Warner Music Canada label mate Meghan Patrick and Brass Tacks Films on board to create something very special. And, that they did. This video created for “Seven Bridges Road” is simple yet unforgettable. The background and acoustics are spectacular. The harmonies are impeccable. Watching it will leave you speechless.
As the lyrics say, “There are stars in the southern sky,” we Canadians are seeing stars in the northern sky, but different stars. Those stars are The Washboard Union and Meghan Patrick.
Interesting fact: This video, filmed at St. John’s Anglican Church in Vancouver, was done in one take!

Support live music in your area – get out and see local artists perform at your favourite venues.
Hi all. I’m Nanci Dagg. I am from Winnipeg, Manitoba, and have lived my entire life here. There is nothing I like better than supporting local artists followed by supporting Canadian artists. Although I was a classic rock gal, my go to genre is country. Something about this music that just makes me feel great. I can be found at most country music concerts and shows (from someone’s house to really large venues) taking lots of pictures. Music and photography are two of my passions. Add to this mix, writing about artists, well let’s say, life doesn’t get better than this.
