Folk Oasis Episode January 18, 2012

Broadcast on 18-Jan-2012

8:00pm - 10:00pm

Tonight we featured some Gordon Lightfoot. Quite a bit, actually, so hope you enjoy it! (although we only hear him singing on one track) Check out the new book about Mr. Lightfoot by Dave Bidini if you get a chance.
Joining me live in the studio this FRIGID* winter evening was Lee Watson of Vancouver roots/bluegrass group The Breakmen. We chatted about their new CD and upcoming tour.
Later in the show we also had a quick phone chat -- from Australia(!) -- with Ash Grunwald, who's touring here in Feb.
Take care and keep warm, everyone!

*frigid is relative. We're currently much colder than Australia, yet somewhat warmer than say, Edmonton.
