Linus Entertainment has acquired the Stony Plain music publishing catalogue after a similar acquisition of the music label's masters in 2020.  


The 200-plus acquisition includes songs by Maria Muldaur, Ronnie Earl, Colin Linden, Amos Garrett, Kevin Breit, Doug Sahm, Sonny Rhodes, Harry Manx, Paul Reddick, Sue Foley, Big Dave Maclean, Tim Hus, Charlie Angus, Jay McShann, Rita Chiarelli, Walter ‘Shakey’ Horton, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, and Cindy Church, and songs recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Jeff Healey, Long John Baldry, Downchild, Dutch Mason,  MonkeyJunk, and Jr Gone Wild.

“It’s been just over two years since Linus Entertainment acquired the Stony Plain Records catalogue, things have gone so smoothly and they have done such a good job with the recordings it felt like the right home for the publishing catalogue as well,” commented Holger Petersen, who started the roots' indie’s publishing arm 49 years ago from his home base in Edmonton with long-time (and now retired) partner Alvin Jahns.

Petersen remains active as  a consultant and continues to scout and produce master recordings for the imprint as per his contract with Linus.

“These songs are part of the history of North American roots music, written by Grammy, Juno, and Blues Music Award winners, and we couldn’t be prouder to be their music publisher,” stated Linus Entertainment CEO Geoff Kulawick.

Tanya Tagaq Plays a Pivotal Role in 'True Detective' Season Finale

The Inuk artist provides vocals for the HBO series' soundtrack, and her song "Submerged" scores a pivotal moment in the season finale, in which she appears as an actress.

The new season of True Detective wrapped up this weekend, and timed with the tense final episode, HBO also released the show's gripping soundtrack. Inuk artist Tanya Tagaq, one of the most celebrated contemporary musicians in Canada, contributed to seven songs on the soundtrack as well as making appearances in the show herself.

Subtitled Night Country, the fourth season of the HBO detective show takes place in the fictional town of Ennis, Alaska. It stars Jodie Foster and Kali Reis as Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro, two police officers trying to figure out how the recent bizarre deaths of six scientists are linked to the murder of Iñupiaq activist Annie Kowtok. Through its mystery framing, the show explores themes like colonial violence, environmental destruction, and missing and murdered Indigenous women.
