R.I.P. Ron Kavana

8:00am - 12:00pm

Paying tribute to my old mate Ron Kavana, who died last Saturday in Cork. He was such an inspirational man, with solid roots in the Blues, Cajun Music, and Rock, as well as one of the most versatile band leaders in contemporary and traditional Irish music. Plus loads of new music from across Canada and beyond, including some especially tasty previews of performers coming to the Vancouver Folk Music Festival in July, and some exotic new sounds from places like Norway, Poland, Ukraine, and Africa.
