Ol’ Savannah announces release of live album – Fill My Cup at De Melkbus: Live in Dordrecht, Netherlands

Independent folk/roots band, Ol’ Savannah, are excited to announce the release of their fifth full-length and first live album, entitled “Fill My Cup at De Melkbus: Live in Dordrecht, Netherlands”. The album will be available at shows and online as of April 20, 2018, and the group will be playing an album launch show in their home base of Montreal, Quebec at Petit Campus the same night with supporting acts, The Steady Swagger and Scott Dunbar One Man Band.

The live album was recorded on October 19, 2017 at Mini-theatre De Melkbus in Dordrecht, Netherlands by Marc Burger (Burger Productions). The 17-track album includes two cover songs not previously recorded by Ol’ Savannah: “Shot Tower” by United Steel Workers of Montreal and “Go Back Home” by Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir. The rest of the album is comprised from Ol’ Savannah’s repertoire, songs from each of the group’s four studio-recorded albums. Performing were Speedy Johnson (vocals, guitar, banjo, harmonica), Kevin Labchuk (accordion, harmonium, backup vocals), Ram Krishnan (bass, backup vocals), and Daniel Malone (drums).

Following the release of “Fill My Cup at De Melkbus”, Ol’ Savannah embarks on their second European tour, which begins on May 5 at Labadoux Festival in Ingelmunster, Belgium. The band will also do a short Quebec summer tour in August out to Gaspésie.
