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.
