About the Album
Orchestrated by composer Lise Vaugeois, Fort William features Rodney's historical songs accompanied by Music Director Arthur Post and the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra. Performances include ceremonial songs by First Nation Drummers Thunder Mountain Singers, fiddler Pierre Schryer and piper Ryan Moore. The album is an evocative follow up to Rodney's well-received recordings, North Land and The Big Lonely, and the singer-songwriters most ambitious project to date.
Fort William will detail the legacy of Canadian explorers, fur traders, country wives, voyageurs and First Nations peoples at the North West Company's headquarters on the Kaministiquia River over 200 years ago. The CD marks a significant milestone in Rodney's career and a wonderful way to celebrate community and our early roots during this unique time in Canadian history.
