Folk Oasis Episode November 20, 2013

Broadcast on 20-Nov-2013

8:00pm - 10:00pm

The 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination is coming up. Tonight we featured The Kennedy Suite, a rock opera/song cycle about that event, produced by the Cowboy Junkies and other Toronto musicians. Also from Toronto, a new 25th anniversary release from the Skydiggers. Check out the new version of "Desmond's Hip City".
Coming to town soon is the 8th annual Grand Cariboo Opry, hosted by Barney Bentall. Proceeds from that show go to the Potluck Cafe Society, so tonight we learn a bit about them from exec director Heather O'Hara.
Getting cold out there, so hope you're all warm and dry... Thanks as always for listening; please spread the good word if you enjoyed this podcast.

hugs, val
