There Were Mountains

Recorded 15 Nov 2015 with David Morrissey
Written by Graham Lindsey

I was in Calgary after the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards (held in Edmonton this year), and decided to take a trip to Canmore to see the mountains. Unfortunately it was very cloudy, so I didn’t really see anything – so I sat in my rental car and wrote this tune.
