Let’s face it. Colin Grant Band thanks its lucky stars every day that we have our good buddy Darren McMullen onstage with us. ‘Cause it just so happens that D is one of the most  sought-after accompanists in the province, and it’s pretty cool when he gets to share tunes with others. So this month, he makes us proud as he hits the road with Raylene, Cookie, Heather, and Jimmy for The Rankins Family’s Up Close and Personal Acoustic Tour. He joins guitarist Jamie Robinson and multi-instrumentalist Cathy Porter to form the Rankins’ acoustic band, and we couldn’t be more proud! Check out a list of their Ontario tour dates for the rest of this month, and see what Darren is up to on the solo front, or pick up his album Decade at www.darrenmcmullen.com .
