Happy holidays to you and yours from Rocking Horse Road Productions! To all of our friends, family, artists and clients, we wish you all the best this holiday season and for 2015!

We are ramping up our efforts again next year, with a bunch of conference trips planned and a new office set up. We can’t wait to make 2015 even better than 2014 – which was pretty stinkin’ great! Personally, as owner of RHR, I can’t tell you how much I love my job, this company and our work. To everyone who helps keep our doors open – THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.

Love, light, laughs.

After spending a long weekend in Dublin last weekend, I thought it’d be fitting to feature one of our traditional artists for this week’s Thursday Track.

Sitting with my partner in Reilly’s Bar, I heard many an Irish tune, and frankly, with the weather, the mood and the tunes, it felt very much like home. The Atlantic Canadian provinces has a large Celtic tradition, and while we’ve fought hard over the years to be known for more rock, pop, hip hop, etc. it’s tough to deny that we still have a huge traditional and folk scene that is bred in to many people from a young age.

The Dardanelles are a Newfoundland trad band, managed by Bob Hallett (of Great Big Sea). We’ve placed “The Dards” twice in a year – once on an episode of Murdoch Mysteries and in a really lovely feature spot in the excellent Newfoundland -based film The Grand Seduction, which came out earlier in 2014.

Check out the two tracks below. And DO check out The Grand Seduction movie!

P.S> DID YOU KNOW – Tom Power from CBC Radio, and a recent host of Q (after the Ghomeshi fall out).. this is his band. Show him some love on Twitter – @tompowercbc 😉
