Del Barber is no stranger to finding inspiration in the cultural backdrop of Canada. On his last record, the JUNO Award-nominated Prairieography, Barber documented stories of prairie life, highlighting the unique relationship between struggle, hard work and love.
On The Puck Drops Here, Barber explores a much more universal piece of the Canadian identity. Through a collection of time-honoured covers and three inspired original numbers, Barber explores our country’s unique love affair with hockey; one that starts young and lasts forever.
Paying homage to Canada’s obsession with the sport, Barber offers his take on unofficial national anthems (including Stompin’ Tom Connors’ “The Hockey Song”) and gems from the rich history of underdog Canadian songwriters.
