Folk Oasis Episode June 1, 2011

Broadcast on 01-Jun-2011

8:05pm - 10:00pm

We went on air with this episode shortly after Vancouver Canucks' 1-0 victory in game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals. Exciting times in the city! I was thrilled to have a chat with Holger Petersen, "Canada's Ambassador for the Blues" and head of Edmonton's Stony Plain Records. They've just released a wonderful CD/DVD combo to celebrate 35(!) years as a label. This week's Vancouver Folk Music Festival preview included bands from Britain and Mali.
Many thanks for listening, enjoy your spring, keep cool (or warm, depending on yr locale) and GO CANUCKS GO!!

peace, val
