Kim Beggs grew up in small-town Quebec and Ontario before ending up in Whitehorse, and her second disc is full of intimate numbers about love, rivers, trains and family - tunes only a folkie living in a town of 22, 000 could write.
There's no shortage of hook-laden tunes that are perfect to play around a cottage campfire or during a late night alone at home, but it's the record's intimacy that makes this a great piece of Americana... er, Canadiana?
Beggs avoids muddying these delicate tracks, forgoing drums and complex instrumentation. Instead, she keeps things simple with just a guitar, one harmony and the occasional pedal steel or banjo.
Kim Beggs plays Mitzi's Sister Monday (August 6).
