We Are Unplugged (2009 Compilation)

Pin It Now!

'We Are Unplugged' is a compilation of all the acoustic songs that The Tragically Hip played during their 2009 We Are The Same Tour.  If you remember, they began the 2nd set with 3 acoustic tunes. Some were expected. Others were not. 

Most probably didn't expect songs like Courage, My Music At Work, Greasy Jungle or An Inch An Hour to be slotted in here, yet they turned out to be remarkably effective. A bunch of the songs below have always been calling for this type of format and just fit in seamlessly. 

I know for myself, getting to hear The Bear and Toronto #4 were personal highlights. We get a few deep-cuts in this compilation and that mirrored the entire tour as 2009 saw a lot of us add previously unseen songs to our lifetime tallies beyond the new album of course.
