High Bar Gang nominated for Juno

Former lakecity singer/songwriter Angela Harris’s band The High Bar Gang has been nominated for a JUNO Award.

Former lakecity singer/songwriter Angela Harris’s band The High Bar Gang has won a JUNO Award nomination for its debut record Lost and Undone: A Gospel Bluegrass Companion.

The Vancouver-based bluegrass group features the vocal harmonies of Harris, Shari Ulrich, Wendy Bird and Barney Bentall, that have become the band’s signature sound.

With solid backing from bassist Rob Becker, multi instrumentalist Eric Reed on banjo, mandolin and dobro, as well as band leader Colin Nairn on guitar and mandolin, the 14 songs on Lost and Undone bring back the sounds of a simpler time.

Lost and Undone was recorded simply and in mono in Bentall’s living room and released Oct. 22, 2013 under the True North Records label.

The album includes stirring versions of Daniel Prayed, Walking in Jerusalem, Sinners You Better Get Ready and Hand in Hand with Jesus. The women in the band also take a verse each on Julie Miller’s modern gospel classic All My Tears.

The album has had numerous tracks played on BBC2 and radio programs throughout the UK, and Europe. Here at home the album has received numerous accolades including making CKUA presenter Terry David Mulligan’s top five list of the best albums of 2013.
