The Dead South have dropped their rendition of the folk classic, “This Little Light of Mine”.
The bluegrass four-piece out of Regina, Saskatchewan have put together their own fast-paced version of the song, recorded separately, via webcam, from the homes of the members while they are observing social distancing.
“This Little Light of Mine” did receive full studio treatment back in 2014 when the band took a swing at recording the track during the sessions for their breakout album, Good Company.
Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
