Sean Burns & Lost Country - We Gotta Lotta Truckin' To Do

If That Ain't Country

In this week's episode we're jumping in the semi and travelling north to get our twang on with Winnipeg's Sean Burns & Lost Country. One of only a handful of traditional country acts playing that city, Burns and the band stayed busy in 2020. In between lockdowns they managed a Bakersfield EP and our feature album this week: an all big rig affair on "We Gotta Lotta Truckin' To Do" (2020). Anchored by Burns' unique and in-your-face delivery (bending notes within an inch of their lives), Lost Country race through a familiar-yet-fresh set of 13 truckin' covers (including one original). Leaning on the legends of this high-energy subgenre, renditions of songs made famous by Dave Dudley, Red Sovine, Del Reeves, Dick Curless and The Willis Brothers will keep your eyes wide and on the road. Recorded at their home away from home in the historic Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club in Winnipeg, "We Gotta Lotta Truckin' To Do" is a twangalicious and infectious slice of Sean Burns & Lost Country live and we couldn't help but include the whole dang thing in this week's show.

Episode #15: Sean Burns

Fly with your Shadow

Sean Burns (seanburns.ca) came into music naturally, he’s the son of a professional, hard-working musician. Between 2009 and 2014, Sean released four albums, each one more distinct and impressive than the last, and made a name for himself on the road. Sometime after the fourth one, he fell in love and found his way to Winnipeg, where he quickly inserted himself into one of Winnipeg’s main hubs and training grounds for roots-based live music, the Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club. There, he and Grant Siemens (Corb Lund's Hurtin' Albertans) became fast friends, and together they put together Sean’s talented band, Lost Country, and recorded a real turning point album for Burns, Music for Taverns, Bars, and Honky Tonks. Last year, he had plans to travel down to Texas to make an album with one of his heroes, legendary pedal steel player and producer Tommy Detamore, who’s produced and worked with a who’s who of American country and roots music, but COVID derailed those plans. Instead, he made one album at home and a couple inside the closed Times Change(d). When he’s not making or playing music of his own, Burns is a longtime host of Boots and Saddle, Earth’s greatest country music program, featuring beautiful music by beautiful country music singers. That show airs on local campus and community station CKUW. Recently Burns also joined the team behind print-only country music magazine, The Honky Tonk Times, where he writes The Northern Report, exposing Canadian talent to a largely American audience. That column recently evolved into a podcast called The Northern Report Podcast, where Burns interviews up and comers and Canadian music icons.

All The President's Minutes - "These are not very bright guys" with Sean Burns

One Heat Minute Productions

All The President's Minutes is a podcast where conversations about movies, journalism, politics and history meet. Each show we use the seminal and increasingly prescient 1976 film All The President's Men as a portal, to engage with the themes and the warnings of the film resonating since its release. In a special bonus episode, I join staff writer at WBUR's The ARTery and a contributing writer at North Shore Movies - my favourite Bostonian - Sean Burns. Blake and Sean discuss the breaking news of stand-over tapes to find votes from President Trump and unfathomable stupidity that continues to dribble through the death rattle of the Trump Presidency. About Sean Burns Sean Burns is a Staff Writer at WBUR's The ARTery and a Contributing Writer at North Shore Movies. He was Philadelphia Weekly's Lead Film Critic from 1999 through 2013 and worked as the Movies Section Contributing Editor at The Improper Bostonian from 2006 until 2014. His reviews, interviews and essays have also appeared in Metro, The Village Voice, The Boston Herald, Nashville Scene, Time Out New York, Philadelphia City Paper, Movie Mezzanine, The House Next Door and RogerEbert.com.A 2013 nominee for the National Society of Film Critics, Burns was a recurring guest on the late David Brudnoy's WBZ 1030 AM radio show, and in 2002 received an award for Excellence in Criticism from the Greater Philadelphia Society of Professional Journalists.His writing has been called "jocular but serious, more like a 1940′s daily reporter pounding out columns on a manual typewriter than a typical 21st-century navel-gazing film critic." Meanwhile, his sisters still tell him that he "swears too much and drives like an old lady."Twitter: @SeanMBurnsSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/one-heat-minute-productions/exclusive-contentAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy

Watch With Jen & Friends: Episode 39 - Sean Burns

Watch With Jen

A staff writer at WBUR's The ARTery and a contributing writer at North Shore Movies, Sean Burns was Philadelphia Weekly's lead film critic from 1999-2013 and worked as the movie section contributing editor at The Improper Bostonian from 2006-2014.Having graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and received an award for excellence in criticism from The Greater Philadelphia Society of Professional Journalists in 2002, Sean's reviews, interviews, and essays have also appeared in Metro, The Village Voice, The Boston Herald, Nashville Scene, Time Out New York, Philadelphia City Paper, Movie Mezzanine, The House Next Door, and RogerEbert.com. Sean's writing has been called "jocular but serious, more like a 1940's daily reporter pounding out columns on a manual typewriter than a typical 21st-century novel gazing critic," but if you ask Sean's sisters, they'll just tell you that he swears too much and drives like an old lady.Very funny and imaginative, Jen once had the misfortune of sharing a podcast episode of Blake Howard's THE LAST (12 Minutes) OF THE MOHICANS with Sean and it's safe to say that everyone that had been laughing and marveling along with Sean was undoubtedly disappointed by the time they reached her half of the conversation.Today's episode starts out pretty traditionally as she asked Sean questions about his life and career but after about fifteen minutes or so, they loosened up, latched onto some tangents, and just went with it. Riffing on the most random of topics (apologies to Michael Douglas!), the last thirty minutes flew by in a fit of laughter.Originally Posted on Patreon (9/28/20) here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/42116374Theme Music: Solo Acoustic Guitar by Jason Shaw, Free Music Archive
