Big Open Sky, written by Kathryn Sutherland, is about a girl split in 2 between where she is and where she would like
to be ,an ode to Saskatchewan, plain and simple. The magic of this track is Kathryn could not quite find a sound for this song beyond a voice memo recording of snow geese on a snowy May day in 2011 and a need to replicate the brilliant sounds and sights of prairie thunder storms. Albert, Simon and Jason took this idea and gracefully, delicately created the music for Kathryn to sing her song.
Kathryn on lead vocals, Simon on guitar and keys, another late night session by himself with beautiful results, Albert on his beautiful handmade mandolin, Jason on bull roar, cymbals and drums.
