Sunday afternoon with Kelly Sloan (audio)

As I drove up to the Old Mill at Ashton just off Highway 7 southwest of Ottawa, I didn’t know what to expect. The building is reminiscent of England’s pubs with its black and white siding. The Ashton Pub, as it’s commonly known, is actually the first original English pub in the heart of the Ottawa Valley. That afternoon, the room […]

For most of our long-hour conversation that touches on his childhood, his travels, and his latest album, Zach stares aimlessly at the sky, his mind recalling every detail and memory.
