Prince Edward Island’s Amy & Rachel Beck were in Cape Breton last week recording their latest album, titled Run!, at Lakewind Sound Studios.  Run! is the follow-up to Amy & Rachel Beck’s self-titled debut album (which was nominated for a Music PEI award in 2013) and is being produced by ECMA award winner Tim Chaisson.

While in Cape Breton, Amy & Rachel Beck played a show at my favourite Sydney music venue – The Cape Breton Fudge Company.  They were joined on-stage by Chaisson (who made a surprise guest appearance).  They performed songs from their debut album, as well as songs that will be on Run!. They also performed a couple of songs from Chaisson’s The Other Side and Gordie Sampson’s “Davey Jones”.

This was my first time seeing Amy & Rachel Beck perform live.  It was an excellent show.  Amy & Rachel Beck write a mix of catchy and thought-provoking songs, have beautiful voices and it is easy to see that they enjoy playing music together.  I consider Tim Chaisson a Canadian music treasure, and his album The Other Side is one of my all-time favourites, so any chance to see him play live is welcome. 

I  am eagerly anticipating the release of Run! this fall.  I hope Amy & Rachel Beck hold a release party in Halifax so I can see them perform live again.

Below are a few photos and videos taken from the show.  For more photos, head over to my Facebook page.
