Canadian Festivals make a playlist
Folk Plus is a blend of
contemporary and older singer songwriters often with a theme.
In real time I air at 2pm, but since I'm not there at 2, you don't have
to be. Log onto the website above and listen when you want radio.
The artists you hear this
hour, all share the fact that they were booked for the 2011 ottawa folk
festival so this should make great listening. If you ever wanna
check out the festival in person, The ottawa folk festival
usually happens the third wkd in august and is at a beautfiul
the water in the exciting town that's canadas capital. Ottawa.
The festival is at http://www.ottawafolk.org/
Anywhere 3:06 Night In A Strange
Canadian writer, singer, teacher extraordinaire.
in the show Ill be airing artists who shared appearing at the
Sherlter Valley festival which happens around labor day each year
in Grafton Ontario. Here is
Ryder Sweeping The Ashes (Album
Version) 4:44 Is It O.K
Catherine MacLellan Keep On
Fighting 5:20 Silhouette- True
Lynne Hanson Here We Go Again
4:14 Once The Sun Goes Down- lynnehanson.com
Madison Violet The Ransom
3:38 No Fool For Trying- True North Records
ladies there. Again a great setlist of talents,
but all these artists have in common, an appearance at the 2011 ottawa
Serena ryder, in 2008 was
named new artist of the year at Canada's Juno's. These are the awards
that the canadian recording music industry awards.
Lavigne won this title just 5 years earlier. You heard
Catherine Maclellan on True North, a steller cnadian label doing OKeep
on Fighting" from her release Siloutte.
You heard Lynne Hanson, who
has several releases out since 2006. She sang "Here we go again" from Once the sun goes down
You heard Brenley
MacEachern/Lisa MacIsaac - a duo who call themselves Madison Violet who
were in the area for the north east regional folk alliance last year.
These two singers who were a couple. They're not now, but still sing
togetehr sort of like Lou and Peter Berryman, who were married, but now
to other people, prefering a touring and singing relationship.
Onto some artists from the United States appearing at the Ottawa
festival, first up Steve Earle.
Earle This City 2:12 - This
Anais Mitchell Cosmic American
3:41 Hymns For The Exiled- Waterbug
Levon Helm The Mountain
3:36 Dirt Farmer- Vanguard
Helm there with The Mountain A grammy winner for
bests traditional folk album perhaps awarded more for lifetime
achievement in my opinion rather than true best folk traditional
album. In our
area over the years, we have had the good fortune to see the great
talent of karen s and Pete Heitzman and here they are doing "Without
Me. " They
will be at Shelter Valley Festival around Labor Day.... with a "u"
"Labour" Day in Canada.
Savoca, Karen Without Me
