Mardi Gras etc.

8:00am - 12:01pm

To kick off Black History Month I started the show with several African-Canadian artists, before moving onto a mini-theme of Carnival / Mardi Gras. Featured music by Cape Breton Celtic combo Coig, Cuban-Canadian artist Alex Cuba (sold out show this evening at the Kay Meek Theatre in West Vancouver), upcoming Rogues like The Bills, Bumper Jacksons, Eilen Jewell, Oliver Swain, Sharon Shannon, De Danann, plus other performers coming to town including Aoife O'Donovan, Damien Dempsey, Jeff Lang, and new releases by Colin Linden, Rhiannon Giddens, Show Of Hands, and Tim O'Brien. Paid tribute to The Busby Babes, the Manchester United soccer team decimated in the Munich Air Crash 58 years ago today with a song by Mick Grove and Phil Beer (of Show of Hands.)
