Ponoka is a small farming community in Alberta, Canada, where the largest six-day rodeo of the country is held every year during the first week of July. Not too much goes on for the rest of the year. Ponoka is also the place where singer/songwriter Rick de Gier grew up, and now, seventeen years after moving back to his native Holland, the name by which he debuts on the Dutch label Volkoren, with the appropriately titled album ‘Hindsight’. Is it one big chunk of nostalgia? Not quite.
