about

We were pretty impressed as we first pulled up the snowy driveway to The Banff Centre. Evan said it was “the hour of the blue snow,” which is how his mom Katrina would describe the moment when the sun has just gone down and the snow looks blue. This stuck with me over the next couple weeks of good music and good friends- our spirits were kept warm no matter how cold that January became.

lyrics

There are ribbons, pink and blue Set by the sun like a crown upon the Rocky Mountains golden light seeps through the clouds there goes the train, a charcoal chain that hugs the mountainside

Chorus: In the hour of the blue snow I walk along with my love, we hear the whistle blow There's a fire that sets our hearts a-glow and we are warm in the hour of the blue snow we are warm in the hour of the blue snow

What will I find in these mountains will I find tunes to weave a web with the strings of my fiddle? What will I find in these pine trees pining for you and for me by the strings of our hearts?

Chorus

The sun's gone done and the deer are on the trail the snow falls quiet as a swallowtail it rests on your lashes like Queen Anne's lace hold me tight, hold me close in that tender place

Chorus
