Also, Martin Connelly is back with his latest video. “This is actually a pretty cool story. The guys from the Halifax band Acres and Acres were hanging out with some friends one night, as you do, drinking some port, as you do, and they decided to sing a song about the sweet fortified wine, and put it up on Youtube. The fine folks at the Newman Wine Vaults saw the video, and invited the boys down for a session over the summer.” Check out Martin’s video of the performance here.
