“Kenny Butterill’s third album is fittingly entitled Troubadour Tales. He’s a veteran roots music singer/songwriter/producer, and he delivers a subtle gem here. It took ten years to create and used that many studios, but is well worth the wait. Long based in northern California, Butterill has kept ties with Canadian musicians, and the album features such notable countrymen as Ray Bonneville and Linda McRae. American guests include Cindy Cashdollar while the legendary Donovan guests on “Gaia Blues”. The focus throughout is on Butterill’s warm and laidback vocals (JJ Cale is a common reference point) and perceptive lyrics that oft include social commentary, as on “Good Thing That Couldn’t Happen Here”. A lovely tribute to our late great Willie P. Bennett, “Willie We Miss Ya”, is a highlight of a record lacking lowlights. He played four Ontario dates in November.”
