Lonesome Scenes Of Winter

8:02am - 12:02pm

A big trip around the shores of Africa to start the show, then some sublime Persian singing and some stirring Nordic tunes to kick things off. Two previews of seasonal concerts (Van Django's Cool Yule, and Coig's Cape Breton Xmas), a tribute to John Lennon - murdered 40 years ago this week - a few amazing new wassail songs, and a few new releases.
