Apple River Monday Morning 'Uptown Funk'

There's not a whole lot of up town funk goin' on usually in Apple River, except for this Monday morning, and here it is. I love music, and living in the Maritimes is such a wonderful place to hear a mesh-mash of cross-cultural, traditional, celtic, blues, hip hop and everything in between.

Not many musicians can do real good cover songs and make them their own, but I've got to say Ben Caplan and Chris Luedecke and the others in the band sure go above and beyond  in breakin' the mold when they performed this in Halifax CBC music Studio 211. It will funk you up. This is the way it's done in the Maritimes!
