...I stared into the dark until I felt the darkness pouring into my brain, until I saw myself staring back from the darkness, my scarecrow shape outlined against the constellations.     I saw the enemy: I am the enemy."

A border by cartography standards, the 49th parallel north distinguishes Canada from the United States. On maps, anyway. But, try telling these musicians that as they sing themselves from side to side and back again. Jamie Fox and Alex Kusturok's fiddling heals a formerly-fading Métis fiddle tradition. Sid Marty's poetry, storytelling and songwriting travels like the Albertan wind. Corb Lund's musical diplomacy bridges the country and the city. And Colter Wall's songwriting blends the real and the magical. Making beauty out of coexistence, proving that lines are never quite what they seem, these five bards of the borderlands epitomize the artist as ambassador.
