Canadian traditionalists The Lucky Ones bring their Yukon hillbilly music to the screen in the video for ‘Fool’s Gold’.  The band is seen performing live in the studio with the line up of mandolinist Ryan James West, guitarist/vocalist Ian Smith, banjo player/vocalist Ryan McNally, fiddler Kieran Poile and upright bassist Jeff Dineley.  ‘Fool’s Gold’ is the second single that has been released from the upcoming album ‘A Nickel For The Fiddler’.

The album was recorded at the Ganaraska Recording Co. outside of Toronto.  As the band began recording they discovered that West’s great-grandfather once lived in the building.

Reflecting on this serendipity West said, “The farmhouse has had minor renovations to make the building work as a recording studio. However, it has been largely untouched and left with that vintage farmhouse appeal. It was profound—truly a spiritual experience—being in there. It was like stepping into a time machine, visiting with ghosts, and sharing songs and stories with the ancestors.”
