Two of Canada's greatest roots singer-songwriters have finally done what everybody's wanted - heck, what they've wanted - for years. Dave Gunning and J.P. Cormier are releasing their first album together, called Two. Great friends, frequent collaborators, co-writers and touring partners, the pair has been talking about this album since pretty much the day they met. Now it's here, and it's everything fans hoped and dreamed it would be. The album is called Two because that's what it is, just the two of them. Two is made up of everything the duo excels at. There are new collaborations between the two writers (Brothers, Home To Mary), new arrangements of antique folk numbers (Johnny Armstrong, Katie o' the Gowrie), and some tasty, surprising covers (Never Picked Cotton, Stompin' Tom's Songbird Valley).
