For four years, I would record interviews for For the Sake of the Song all summer at festivals around Ontario, then I would release them year round on a twice monthly schedule.  This winter, I found my busy home and worklife was very busy.  I also have been quite focussed on my other podcast, The Catholic Roundup.  So I did what so many other long running podcasters eventually do.  I Podfaded.

After four years and 120+ interviews with songwriters I think I accomplished what I set out to do when I started the podcasters.  I have interviewed some amazing musicians, I’ve grown as a songwriter, and I have done the radio show I always wanted.

But I still have about half a dozen unreleased shows from last summer and fall,  and occasionally I run across a musician I would really like to interview.  So I’m not going to end this show completely– just become a periodic podcast producer.

 

The 51st Edition of the Mariposa Folk Festival is right around the corner on July 8-10, 2011.  I still have 4 unreleased interviews from last year’s festival with some wonderful musicians.  I will try to release these shows leading up to the festival this year.

To get this started, please enjoy a few of my pictures from last year’s Mariposa Folk Festival.

Dave Borins is a Toronto singer-songwriter who seemingly effortlessly crosses between folk, country, and hard-edged rock and roll.  I caught up with him at the Mariposa Folk Festival.  Dave and his band will be recording a live album on October 20 and 21, 2010 at Hugh’s Room in Toronto.  It is bound to be a great event.

To cap things off, it turns out that today is his birthday, a fitting day to release this episode. Happy Birthday Dave.

image from paulmills.ca Paul Mills is known in the Canadian roots music scene as a musician, songwriter, producer, co-founder of Borealis Records and as a former sideman of Stan Rogers.  He often performs under the name of Curly Boy Stubbs.  We met at the booth of guitar maker, Ron Belanger at the Mariposa Folk Festival.  You can hear the sounds of the  festival around us as Paul shares some stories from his long career as a producer, and we discuss songwriting, and the role of the producer in the recording process.

I was blown away by the Great Wooden Trio at the Mariposa Folk Festival.  The Great Wooden Trio is actually has 4 members, an acoustic folk trio accompanied by a storyteller.  One of their two songwriters, Kevin Morse and I  talked about songwriting and passed around my  Ron Belanger crafted guitar in my favorite baseball dugout.

FredPenner

My guest today is a household name to 2 generations of Canadians.  Fred Penner is a children’s entertainer who had a long running program on CBC television throughout the 80s and 90s called Fred Penner’s Place.  His music has been a strong influence upon me and many other children’s performers.  I sat down with Fred in my friend, luthier Ron Belanger’s booth at the Mariposa Folk Festival.  You can hear a quite a bit of the vibe from the festival and the other vendors in the background. It was an absolute thrill having Fred jam along to For the Sake of the Song.  You can find his music at fredpenner.com or at Casablanca Kids,
