About Ghosts of the Highway
From Dawson City to the Baja Peninsula, from Haida Gwaii to the Cape Breton Highlands, multi-instrumentalist songwriter Jeff Andrew and spoken word-artist shayne avec i grec have trekked tens of thousands of miles by thumb, rail, bus & foot, chasing minstrels, miscreants and mysteries along the way. In the spring of 2008, these ragged wanderers joined forces as Ghosts of the Highway to hitchhike from Victoria, BC to St. John’s, NFLD. Along the way the pair sold copies of their self-produced album “Road Warriors Unite” and performed a mix of original and traditional folk songs, spoken word, Celtic ballads and fiddle tunes to audiences in nearly 50 different bars, cafes, kitchens, art galleries, bookstores and back-alleys across Canada.
As Ghosts of the Highway, Jeff and shayne bring a show like an old-style revue: a mix of music, storytelling and audience participation. They frequently perform straight from the floor, stomping their boots and belting like born-again carnival barkers. Whenever possible the stage is opened to anyone in the room with a story or song of their own, creating an inclusive, inspiring atmosphere that breaks down the walls between audience and performer. This August they will be appearing at the ArtsWells and Robson Valley music festivals and playing select shows in the interior of BC.
