I am launching a new format for this podcast.  Think of it like the director’s commentary on a DVD movie but for albums.  I will have a conversation with musicians while we listen to one of their albums.  The conversation will last for the duration of the album.  Enjoy.


Christopher Thompson
 is a young fingerstyle guitarist from Orillia.  He recently released his second EP, La-La on Sleeper Records.  Sleeper records was founded by Aaron Howes as a way to promote young Orillia area musicians.  You can download it on Bandcamp  or find it on iTunes.  We are joined on the podcast by Chris’ Sleeper Records labelmate, Aaron Mangoff.

Next weekend is the 51st annual edition of the  Mariposa Folk Festival, and I still find I have 3 shows from last year to release.  Last summer, I finally got the chance to interview Suzie Vinnick.  I first became aware of Suzie and her amazing voice in the late 80s when I was attending university in Saskatoon. Suzie was a featured performer on a local radio station, C95′s compilation of local musicians,  Cityworks 88.  Over the years I have seen her perform at numerous festivals, but this is the first time I had a chance to chat with her.  You may also recognize her voice from the “Always Tim Horton’s” jingles.   Enjoy.

If you are at the Mariposa Folk Festival next weekend, you will find me in the Children’s village building drums with sonotube and packing tape.  Drop by and say hello.

Last summer I sat down with Canadian Folk legend Caitlin Hanford, at the 50 anniversary of the Mariposa Folk Festival.  Caitlynn Hanford is  a solo-singer songwriter, she is 1/4 of Quartette with Sylvia Tyson, Gwen Swick and Cindy Church, and she sings in the Marigolds with Gwen Swick and Susie Vinnick.  She is also an elementary school music teacher so our conversation steered towards a discussion on teaching music to children.
