Stompin’ Tom Connors left a massive musical archive behind when he passed away in March 2013, and the next round of songs will see the light of day in December.
The 14-song set Unreleased Songs From The Vault Collection Volume 3 will feature artists like The Sheepdogs, The Washboard Union, Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, and more.
“These songs are a collection that Tom recorded in 2011-2012 before his passing, and are some of his favorite songs he performed by request before he was known as Stompin’ Tom,” said Tom Connors Jr. in a press release. “Tom wanted to make sure that many of the old country songs he grew up listening to are not to be forgotten. He put these songs in “The Vault” in hopes that others can enjoy or even record them for themselves one day, to help keep traditional Country music alive and well for generations to come.”
Some of the tracks include classics written by Hank Williams, Russ Morgan, and Don Gibson, covered with a Stompin’ Tom twist.
There’s even a node to the west coast, with “My Nova Scotia Home.”
