‘Paramilitary police state on parade’ — Lindy Vopnfjörð performs No Knock Raid [video]

With all the talk about the militarization of the police in the wake of the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., the National Post asked Canada’s Lindy Vopnfjörð to perform his song, No Knock Raid, about the harsh tactics used by many police forces in the United States.



The video is 3:42 in length. It was produced by Jesse Kline; filmed and edited by John Richardson.

“Lazy Like The Moon” Tour Blog Update

It’s really great to be on tour and to feel how much live music truly affects people. My favourite compliment I’ve been hearing so far is “I wasn’t going to come out tonight and I am so glad that I did.” 
Love that others didn’t know who I was but they recognized my songs on Radio 2 and 3. 
We’ve been playing in small towns that are well off the mainstream band circuit and have met wonderful people who put on house concerts in their homes for their communities because they love hearing songwriters tell a story and play the accompanying songs. These listening rooms and house concerts have allowed me to put together a show that I believe really connects with people in these intimate environments. It’s been such a pleasure to travel around and share a stage with Mr. Dennis Ellsworth who is a prolific and powerful songwriter and a true friend. 
Just four more shows left on our “Lazy Like The Moon” tour. Plan B in Moncton tomorrow plus two house concerts in Campbellton and Sackville before the grand finale sold out show in PEI at The Trailside on Mother’s Day in Dennis’ hometown. 
There are songwriters out there on the road these days that you would love if you saw them but it’s getting harder and harder to tell people they are in town because of the noise of social media. Isn’t it time to tune in, turn on, and drop out of the noise and get back into the arms of a songwriter who will give you reason to say “I wasn’t going to come out tonight, but I am so glad that I did?”

LAZY LIKE THE MOON – 2014 SPRING TOUR with Dennis Ellsworth

Lindy's tour banner
I’ve teaming up and hitting the road with Dennis Ellsworth – a flop-eared kid from mystical Prince Edward Island.
In a mutually beneficial pseudo exchange program, we will play gigs together in each other’s back yards, starting in the Golden Horseshoe and making our way out East to Dennis’ stomping grounds. I think we are an excellent match and I’m stoked to be bringing him to some of my favourite venues. I hope you will come out and see us!
