There's a brief review by Hugh Gregory of Brent's latest album Stony Plain in the current edition (182/183) of Folk Roots magazine:

"Guitarist Brent Mason's third album, Stony Plain, is a fine even-handed affair that belies the fact that he is scarcely known beyond New Brunswick. Whether Stony Plain changes anything remains to be seen, but it can't be faulted for its lack of ambition. For it is one of those rare albums where as much effort has been expended thinking about how best to present the material. Consequently there is a spare eloquence to this self-penned collection (Brent Mason, #2, 3 Second Street, Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada E2K 3L3. Tel/fax 001-506-652-5238; e-mail:"
