The Move the Earth CD was inspired by the blue-collar men and women of Medicine Hat, Alberta, who worked in one of Western Canada’s first major industries – clay and pottery. Ron Mason's ability to find the humanity in the industry and understand the later struggle to save the factories makes for powerful songs that seamlessly move from optimism to defiance with equal passion and care.
