Winnipeg, Canada’s blues legend Big Dave McLean visits Nashville to record with master multi-instrumentalist and producer, Steve Dawson, for Faded But Not Gone. Dawson made the trip more than worthwhile by bringing aboard Colin Linden, Colin James, the McCrary Sisters and some great session players for a mix of McLean originals and covers. The authoritatively raspy-voiced McLean channels mostly country blues as the healing force to deal with recent losses of his mother and brother. The McCrary Sisters-backed “Shades of Grace” is a touching tribute to his mother, while “The Fallen” is for his brother who passed away a week before the song was recorded.
