30 Musicians, 22 Songs

 In late 2021 & early 2022, 30 hand-picked musicians, on opposite sides of Canada, got together to make the first-ever professional recording of Joan Beckow's music.  After nearly a year of planning, and several weeks of rehearsals, 22 songs representing a cross-section of Beckow's vast catalogue were recorded live-off-the-floor in 4 studio days, in two of Canada's top recording studios.
