In the depths of the great potluck ban of 2020, Jason Camp and The Posers recorded a live basement session on Haida Gwaii. Showcasing some new songs on a boring afternoon, some of the lost chronicles of Jonny Begel and his quest to return to his motherland, and some reminders that its good to focus on trying to smile as the world crumbles around you. So lean back and settle in, and join the Haida trio as they help you waste another afternoon.
