In that area, they also recorded their latest album, The Garage Sessions.

Fort McMurray, Alta. is described as a “boom town,” riding the discovery of the oil sands just beyond its limits.
Highway 63: The Fort Mac Show, is an eccentric play that weaves a sort of stream-of-consciousness narrative incorporating Fort Mac’s history, environmental concerns and those who call this little community home.
