Recorded 23 February 2018, in Ottawa, in the Kitchissippi watershed, Algonquin territory.

The Log Drive Cafe ( is a traditional music concert series featuring local and visiting folk musicians in a coffeehouse setting, in which the audience is welcome to sing along.



released April 16, 2018

Tim played nylon-string guitar, banjo, cardboard box kickdrum and footjingle, and sang.

Chrissy played steel-string guitar, accordion, tin flute, harmonica, tenor guitar, all the solos, and sang.

The audience sang along, asked questions, shared comments and knowledge, and even laughed at our jokes.

All the songs were traditional, and arranged by Wychwood. Lyrics, chords, and manifestos:


"A lot of what people do in music and performance is a cop-out. They’re just afraid of what they are, and they want to be seen as something bigger and more magical than what they are. So they do extra things – you know, they have extra layers of vocals in recordings or they have a bunch of stage business, or lighting, or costumes, and all that kind of stuff. All of that stuff is a product of the fear of being exposed."
— Steve Albini


Thanks to those who made it happen, those who came, and everyone's who's cared along the way.
