mooncoverhillKate Boothman has been recording beautiful, hand-made records for years, first with the short-lived but well-loved all-girl retro outfit The Real Priscillas; then as Horse, a solo recording project that featured turns by members of Blue Rodeo and The Sadies; and then as Sunbear .  Boothman has also been gaining a reputation as a solo performer, playing stripped-down acoustic sets as the invited opener for established songwriting talents like Joe Pernice (Pernice Brothers), Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star), Ana Egge , Howe Gelb and Robyn Hitchcock.
