Recorded at the Millstream studio with famed producer and musician Paul Mills (aka Curly Boy Stubbs), this CD is 14 new original songs. With stunning originality and creativity, Dave has encompassed a huge variety of subjects and musical genre's. Some of the songs are personal and private, some bold and startling. Dave has really stepped out for this one!
With some extremely talented accompanists, Wilderness Waltz is 12 songs on Canadian themes. Some are funny, some are sad, some are orchestrated and one is a cappella, but each tries to forge an intimate connection with the Land and its people and the stories they have to tell.
“Dave Hadfield writes and performs songs dear to the heart  of all Canadians.  His stirring lyrics evoke the granite wilderness of the  Canadian Shield, reminding us of the need in everyone to connect with nature,  while his humourous songs make us laugh at our own frailties and  foibles”.
