“This will undoubtedly be one of the biggest adventures of our lifetime. When asked to play, there was a resounding “yes” from the band. The Torngats, the ‘place of spirits’. A masterful design by Mother Nature. A place filled with the beauty, the art and all the splendor of the Indigenous people. 1/3rd of us got to experience a fly over once, while 2/3rds of us have only experienced in pictures. What a rare honour to be able to bare witness together and what a pleasure it will be to sing for the folks who choose to share in this opportunity of a lifetime” said Phil Churchill, from The Once.
